King’s power to sev­ens ti­tle in style

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - SCHOOLS RUGBY

THE King’s rugby first team have lifted the county sev­ens ti­tle with a pow­er­ful dis­play against the cream of the Wheat­sheaf sides at St Am­brose Col­lege.

King’s won in im­pres­sive fash­ion beat­ing King Wil­liam’s, Lymm HS, Cal­day and then Bishop Heber School 35-5 in a what turned into a rout.

King’s scored 142 points and con­ceded only five all day and were by far and away the best team on dis­play.

Fluid cen­tre Cameron Red­path, rapier scrum half Will Hodg­son and high ve­loc­ity winger Kieran McKeever all ex­celled.

“As al­ways in sev­ens it was a squad per­for­mance,” said King’s di­rec­tor of rugby Guy Ma­son.

“You are only ever as strong as your weak­est link and we had strength in depth.

“We have a tal­ented group of young rugby play­ers with the full set of run­ning and han­dling skills needed to shine at sev­ens who have been moulded by our own sev­ens tac­ti­cian, ex-Mac­cles­field first team stal­wart Paul Bar­tle.”

Pic­tured wear­ing the new school rugby shirts de­signed by award win­ning young art­sist Chris­tian Bee­ston are from left to right: Tim Phillips; Jack Hud­son; Sam Wor­thing­ton; Will Hodg­son, Cameron Red­path, Stew Gur­ney, Cal­lum Lavelle, Kieran McKeever, Tom McClusky, Will Fair­clough, Tom Belt and Ol­lie Kenny.
