Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - TUG OF WAR

BOSLEY Tug of War Club this week­end com­peted in a Tug of War As­so­ci­a­tion south­ern re­gion event hosted by Thames Val­ley Tug of War Club in Read­ing, com­pet­ing in all five of the mens weight cat­e­gories on of­fer at 600kg, 620kg, 640kg, 680kg and catch­weight.

The team com­peted well through­out the day mak­ing three fi­nals out of the five weight classes en­tered.

The team fol­lowed up their suc­cesses from the pre­vi­ous week of com­pe­ti­tion in Bed­ford by win­ning the 600kg com­pe­ti­tion for the sec­ond week run­ning by de­feat­ing Sand­hurst from Berk­shire in the fi­nal by 2 ends to 0.

The team then fol­lowed up the win in the 600kg com­pe­ti­tion by tak­ing a sec­ond gold medal in the 620kg com­pe­ti­tion, again de­feat­ing Sand­hurst in the fi­nal by 2 ends to 0.

Bosley’s third fi­nal of the day came in the 680kg com­pe­ti­tion, and de­spite be­ing un­der­weight in this weight class bat­tled their way to the fi­nal to meet Fel­ton Ec­cles from Som­er­set.

Bosley couldn’t make it three gold medals on this oc­ca­sion and had to set­tle for the sil­ver medal, with Fel­ton Ec­cles tak­ing gold by 2 ends to 0.

“It was an­other good day of com­pe­ti­tion for us, but there is still a long way to go un­til the na­tional cham­pi­onships on 18 June,” com­mented club spokesman Alan Knott.

“It is pleas­ing to be mak­ing fi­nals at com­pe­ti­tions early on in the sea­son, so we just have to make sure we try and stay ahead of our ri­vals ev­ery week.”

Bosley will next be com­pet­ing at the sec­ond round of the Tug of War As­so­ci­a­tion Na­tional League hosted by Lin­coln Tug of War Club in Mel­ton Mow­bray this Sun­day 24 April and will be com­pet­ing most Sun­days in the build up to the Na­tional Out­door Tug of War Cham­pi­onships, which this year take place lo­cally at Mac­cles­field Rugby Club on Satur­day 18 June.
