Northwich U14’s 40 - Parkonians 7

Northwich started well again, pressing Parkonians back with Harvey smashing through the opposition to score the first try of the match. It was then Harvey again running at Parkonians who released Gary for the second try of the game with Harry converting his second kick of the game from a wide position.

Parkonians couldn’t contain Northwich who kept the home team on the back foot and when they made a mistake close to their own line there was Jamie to run in the third try of the game. Possession was difficult to retain for Parkonians with constant Northwich turn overs and playing some great rugby moving the ball well across the line. It wasn’t long before Jamie ran in Northwich’s fourth and his second try of the game. Parkonians managed to pull back one score just before half time

The second half was a closer game mainly due to some strange decisions from the ref, however it didn’t take long before Northwich took control with Jamie scoring his third try To finish the game off Harvey ran through Parkonians knocking everyone out of his way to score his second try and Northwich’s 6th try of the game

A great team effort today with a lot of contenders for man of the match, however it had to be Jamie well done.

Team : Danny, Chris, Elliot H-J, Tom C, Ollie C, Jamie, Elliot S, Bob, Harry, Elliot K, Harvey, Kyle, Myles, Tom R, Gary Subs : Carter, Tom G, Nathan

Game Northwich U14’s 7 - Sandbach 7

Development Game Northwich U14’s 14 - Sandbach 0

Northwich welcomed a mass of travelling Sandbach players, and had agreed prior to play a 40 minute game, with whatever the score to be the end result. Then we were also going to allow a further 20 minutes for Sandbach to field more players.

As the score suggests, today’s game was close. Sandbach had a fantastic set of forwards, and it was obvious their game plan was pick and go, and they were very accomplished at this. Northwich however stood tall, playing some great defensive play and actually took the game to Sandbach.

Daniel Harrogate can be especially proud of his tackling today, and on numerous occasions was the first to break away from the scrum to make the first tackle and Harry gave there scrum half no chance.

Using the strength of their forwards Sandbach however managed to turn the ball over and ran in the first try from their own half, which was a little against the run of play.

This seemed to galvanise the lads, all were having a great game, the standard of the backs line was immense, and some great crunching forwards tackles from both Elliot’s and Jamboo, and Mr Cosgrove, throwing himself round like superman.

Northwich came back strong again playing the ball across the line, Harvey was a constant threat continually running at Sandbach as our backs, had the slight edge, through some excellent drifting. It didn’t take long for us to equalise, Tom R picked the ball up deep in the Northwich half and went on a run before releasing Myles who ran the ball over, a champagne moment at its best, particularly as Myles was having a day where the ball stayed in his hands. Harry N converted a long range effort all square at half time.

Second half was again very close with Sandbach defending well. In the same vain as the first Northwich kept pressing but couldn’t find the final pass to unlock the Sandbach the defence, with numerous players, In Harvey, Jamboo, Elliot Stanley, Kyle going close in the end .

With 5 mins to go Northwich had the chance to win the game, with a penalty just past the half way line, the lads opted to kick, which shows how far they have come, “ let’s get the points” unfortunately not to be a good effort from Harry, but just pulled left at the last minute. So full time all square 7 - 7

We then went onto play a further 20 mins, which ended in our favour 14-0

Highlights of the last 20 mins, watching Harvey Hemmings at scrum half, the poor sandbach Player did not know what hit him.

All in all today, with Players trying new positions and new players still bedding in to the team, it was hard to select anyone for MOM, all the lads are now realising what great players they can be and the never give up attitude is back ! let’s face it, Sandbach are tough opponents, who will with their forwards have some great results this year, but as a team, both attacking and defensively in my opinion edge the game. Especially pleasing is that however many changes we made it made no difference to the shape of the time.

Special mention to Nathan who has just joined the team and played his first match for Northwich today. Also to Gary Ward who looks like an old pro now.

MOM< as always the Captain stood tall, the forwards played their part, all the backs players were good in both defence and attack, but this week it goes to Daniel Harrogate, who had the best game we have seen him play in a Northwich shirt, and long may it continue.

Special thanks to Sandbach, who we thoroughly enjoyed playing and look forward to many more fixtures.


Starting : Elliot H-J, Chris, Danny, Ollie C, Alfie, Tom C, Jamie, Elliot S, Harry, Elliot K, Harvey, Myles, Bob, Kyle, Tom R Subs : Ollie K, Tom G, Carter, Mitchell, Gary Ward, Jacob E, Nathan

A home fixture at the "Moss Farm fortress" for the blacks U9's. Crewe & Nantwich turned up early with 3 strong, well drilled sides (as usual). This is our third year of both home and away fixtures playing Crewe and Nantwich and it has always proved to be a really competitive morning of rugby played totally in the right spirit.

Two match debuts today for Holly and Harvey.

Northwich 8 A v Crewe & Nantwich A RUFC 2

Louis (3), Reuben(2), Aiden(1), Harry W (1), Harry Ep (1), Thomas, Finlay, Holly.

I am running out of superlatives for these Northwich U9's. They were awesome again, defending vigourously, attacking with intelligence, constantly changing the point of attack and making it almost impossible for the opposition to defend against them. The overall team play was outstanding and every player put a big shift in.

The two debutants today fitted straight into the team, it was as though they had being playing for Rugby fo Northwich for years!! Both Holly and Harvey won the 100% achievement award which shows how well they did. Well done!!


Northwich A Man of the Match - Noah

Northwich A 100% effort - Harvey

Northwich B Man of the Match - Harry Ep

Northwich B 100% effort - Holly

When the fog lifted, we were treated to a beautiful autumn day for watching Sunday morning rugby on the excellent Sandbach surface. Despite a string of great results, the lads expected a difficult day at the home of the Cheshire Cup champions. It didn't help only having 14 players and one coach, to the 27 players and four coaches of Sandbach - yes, you read that right; twenty seven and four! Note for Mr Chairman - grass roots rugby is where it's at and Sandbach clearly had a good handle of this philosophy.

Bowdon emerged through the mist and fog on a morning that had more than a chill in the air. Bowdon have historically always had the better of us, even though last season I recall us just shading the contest.

After last weeks successful start this would no doubt prove to be a sterner test.

Half 1

Northwich 20 – Bowdon 5

Fire and Brimstone, Endeavor and Execution, Deftness and Full Bloodedness.

A quick bus trip to Yorkshire saw the clubs first ever under 13s girls match and the need for our first ever translator, with both Chris and Sean of Mersyside origin it was a tense time when they were welcomed from the bus with an “Aye Up” by the Yorshire hosts. The two puzzled coaches exchanged glances and responded ….alrite...calm down......calm down!

A super day out by all accounts and the club would like to extend their thanks to all those who travelled, the bus company (Phil the coolest bus driver with Blue Tooth stereo) but mostly Castleford for being fantastic hosts and we look forward to the return fixture.

Girl Power!!!!!!!!!!!
