Twenty members of the U7 & U8’s squad travelled to Birkenhead Park on the Wirral for the first away match of the season. Due to Birkenhead running their Mini matches at 10.00 am rather than the norm of 11.00 am, the Northwich team members whom had arrived to what they thought would be pre-match training, were immediately thrown into games against the home team. Fortunately, all team members arrived with their rugby heads well and firmly on.

The girls proudly brought home their first silverware from an excellent day of rugby hosted by welcoming Old Brodleians.

Rugby was played out in its best essence – competitive games with sportsmanship and respect enjoyed by girls, parents, coaches and referees.

Northwich RUFC Under 11’s 110 Knutsford RUFC 10


The first away game of the season, not to far to travel and although we were missing a few players through various reasons the mornings activities promised much, as the chariots rolled into the academy a strong set of gladiators stood before us, for today felt like a good day, and so it transpired.

Today Northwich found out why Macclesfield have been Cheshire Champions all but once (I think) Things inproved in the second half but the damage had been done in the first 35 as Macc ran riot against poor tackling and breakdown work and the pale imitation of the side that beat Ormskirk last week were subsequently demolished.

On a very brisk and windy morning our gallant 15 made their way to Shotton. The walk from the club house to the pitch was that long, we had to use Google maps. However, with a train station waiting room navigated and field full of strange people dressed as vikings, we all ended up at what resembled a rugby pitch.


The lads started well - really well, following some slick early passing across the back-line, the ball ended up on the wing and in the hands of the pacey Ben G. A quick cut inside to dodge a tackle and Ben was free to run in the first try and Sam added the extra two.


When I said we started really well, I wasn't exaggerating. Straight from the kick off JP finished off one of his now customary 70 yarders to give us a dream start. 0-12. Not to be out done, straight from the kick off again, Reagan picked up the bobbling kick and deftly thread his way through the Shotton defence to score another - told you we started well! 0-17


After the initial onslaught, the game settled down for 10 minutes. However, following some aggressive tackling from Ben W to thwart a Shotton attack, Aaron broke free and deftly fed the on-rushing Sam, who rode a tackle or two to score and then stepped up to slot the conversion; a great all-round team try. 0-24.


Shotton began to apply some pressure once again but the Northwich defence held firm. The pressure was short lived, as when Sam broke through their back line and fed the ball to Aaron on the inside he found himself in acres of space. A nice pass in to the hands of the supporting Dan, helped release JP once again. One missed tackle later and he was under the posts to score his second of the morning. Aaron did the honours and Northwich were looking good at 0-31. Liam quickly added another following some strong team play and the boys were looking home and dry by 16 minutes. 0-36.


A few minutes later, some strong play from Lloyd, Josh, Callum, Charlie and Connor who were working really well as a unit, enabled Conner to feed Sam on the inside, who piled over the line to score another. Ben G did the honours and the lead was 43 points. Just before the half, the Shotton number 8 broke a few tackles to get his team on the score sheet. 7-43 at half time.


The second half began very evenly, with the home side competing much more following their half time team talk. However, the marauding pair of Liam and Regan extinguished any thoughts of a comeback when Regan rode a number of tackles to release Liam who powered through to score. Sam slotted the conversion and Northwich had reached the big 5.0. Welsh rules state that when a team reaches an unassailable 50 points then the game should be stopped in good spirit. The referee duly blew his whistle and Northwich were victorious 7 points to 50.


Testament to the team spirit, the lads stayed on for decent training session with the Shotton team, helping their coaches work on a few things. Northwich were clearly the superior outfit throughout the game and with their blend of strength, determination and pace, will be difficult to beat throughout the rest of the season

Northwich RUFC Under 11’s 30 Eccles RUFC 20


Whilst the sun shone, the cold was definitely biting, as Northwich welcomed Eccles to Stadio Mossfarmio for the first time.

It has been a fixture at every Rugby club across the Country that on Remberance Sunday the fields that are usually filled with the wonderful sound of the kids playing a sport they love falls silent for 2 minutes while we remember those who gave their lives for our freedom, yet again this was wonderfully observed by all.

With Northwich suffering twelve unavailability’s due to Armistice Day parades, illness and

“It’s my mate’s party on Saturday night” reasons, it was with some trepidation that we travelled to Ormskirk for the first time to face a team with a very impressive row of “W’s” on their results page. The hosts though also had ten players missing and both teams would be needing to shuffle their packs.
