Saturday 24th March.
1st XV take on Northwich (away). KO 3pm.
Second team announcement
The second team league has now been disbanded due to a number of clubs finding it increasingly difficult to fulfil fixtures…… Fear not. A number of fixtures will be organised from now until the end of the season. The new structure is all about getting lads on a pitch playing rugby and goes away from the old system of points deductions and fines etc.
The clubs who will provide teams for these fixtures have agreed to an open and transparent approach …regarding playing numbers and standards to ensure that the rugby is competitive and enjoyable to all.
A number of other ideas are also being looked at, at the moment such as Friday night floodlight games and 3 way fixtures.
If we have too many players for one team and insufficient for 2 then we are probably not alone in this and as such we will look to pool players from 2 or 3 clubs to provide a barbarians style team to face an opposition
We will keep you posted as things develop but in the meantime let look forward to the next fixture for the seconds at home on the 2nd December closely followed by an away trip to Holmes Chapel (9th) who we enjoyed a good game against a few weeks back
