Our 1st XV finished runners up in South Lancashire and Cheshire League One, as a result they now play a play off match AWAY -v- Bolton on Saturday 27th April Kick off 3.00pm. The winner will be promoted to North One West (level 6)
The club are running buses from Moss Farm to Bolton in a bid to get as much support behind the team as possible and hopefully get the result required. There is an early bus that leaves at 11.00 and later M & Js bus that leaves at 1.30 to accommodate any Saturday morning footballers.
Cost of the bus will be £10.00 per head but may reduce should we fill a full bus, given that we got nearly 200 people to the IOM, one would hope we could fill a bus to Bolton.
Could team admins please collate numbers of people wishing to travel and send them to Ian asap so we may book the transport.
Deadline is Wednesday 23rd.

Words simply cant do today justice, so I'll use pictures!
With 11 players missing, the only positive was that we still managed a team of 14 and then borrowed one from C & N, who were simply far too good, aggressive, organised and so on and so on.

This was the final scheduled league match and Northwich signed off in fine style. The score line does not tell the whole story as Hoylake proved to be an extremely competitive outfit. Nevertheless the Blacks secured there 13th win in a row adding another bonus point on the way. As the results came in it proved not to be enough to earn a home tie and Northwich will need to travel to Bolton in the play-off.

Northwich went into this match knowing that a bonus point win would put them in the play-offs and give them the opportunity to return to North West One. However this match very nearly didn’t take place. There was an exodus from Northwich of almost 200 people made up of junior players, parents, coaches and supporters. Most of who travelled on Friday. However the 1st XV nearly didn’t make it to the island as a five hour flight delay resulted in a late arrival at the Doulas ground. The pitch also presented some problems as heavy rain left lying water on large sections of the playing surface. With both sets of players wanting to get things underway determination proved the order of the day.

Game 1: Northwich started well and packed the centre of the field to play through the middle, but Chester looked a well organized unit who moved the ball quickly and caught Northwich out in their width. They ran in a couple of tries in the far corner to avoid the majority of the Northwich defense who had over-committed to the breakdown, and scored a third with a fantastically worked set-play from the scrum; they also kicked the ball well to maximize their advantage with conversions running in at half-time 21-0 up.

A difficult report to write due to the events that unfolded at Jim Evision playing fields, it is probably best however that I try to keep where possible to the good points of the morning and try to somehow forget the huge injustice dealt to the 21 Northwich lads, their parents and all spectators of what was an exceptional game of Rugby from Northwich and Wilmslow. At least Dick Turpin wore a mask!

In a hard fought contest Northwich came out deserved victors and secured another 5 point win to take a step closer to the play offs. Apart from a stiff breeze Moss Farm served up ideal conditions for rugby and the large crowd were not disappointed.
