Macc grab a big vic­tory as top sides fall

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - CLUBMAN COL­UMN

im­me­di­ately above us in the ta­ble.

This can be done now that the squad is look­ing sta­ble un­der the man­age­ment of Mar­shall Gadd and his team.

Around Pri­ory Park on Satur­day the re­sults did not go the way of the other sides with the 2nd XV go­ing down up in Lan­cashire at Vale of Lune, and the 3rd team lost out at home to Wir­ral Sec­onds – but the 4th XV kept up win­ning ways at Lin­ley with a good 17-3 vic­tory.

FOR those of you who are in the 200 Club I can give you the re­sult of the draw for Novem­ber and De­cem­ber which was held at the club last week:

Novem­ber – 1st: Wil­lie Mont­gomery, 2nd: David Holder and 3rd: Mar­garet Cohen

De­cem­ber – 1st: Jim Sharp, 2nd: Nick Hynes and 3rd: Dave Armstrong.

As al­ways this 200 Club as­sists the club in its quest for fi­nances and if you wish to join and be in with a chance of some cash, then get in touch with Al­bert Simp­son at the club.

As we now ap­proach the fes­tive sea­son and in deep­est win­ter I won­der when we will see the flood­lights at the club re­stored to full work­ing or­der as three of the bulbs have now been un­lit for some time and, in my view, it does not re­flect well on the club – es­pe­cially when stag­ing 1st XV games on the pitch.

I un­der­stand that it re­quires spe­cial­ist equip­ment to re­store these bulbs, but if any more go out I won­der if ref­er­ees will be happy to of­fi­ci­ate in games when full fa­cil­i­ties are not avail­able – just a thought.

As this will be my last col­umn for 2018, may I wish all rugby fol­low­ers a very happy and pros­per­ous Christ­mas and 2019 – and I will be back in the new year.

GAMES FOR SATUR­DAY:

1st XV v. Ch­ester – Away – 3pm. Ch­ester play at Hare Lane, Lit­tle­ton, Ch­ester, CH3 7DB, which from my Tyther­ing­ton ad­dress is about 37 miles, so al­low a good hour for travel.
