The Blacks run of 8 league wins on the bounce came to an end at Moss Farm. AK proved to be the better side on the day in what was a thrilling encounter. An early pitch inspection cast some doubt on whether match would get underway. With lying water an ice on the first choice pitch the match was moved to an alternative arena. This proved to be a good decision as both side play expansive rugby, which the neutrals will have enjoyed. Both sides were well prepared and it was clear that the outcome would have a significant bearing on the race for promotion.

Sunday morning saw us travel to the very tip of the Wirral peninsula for a fixture against New Brighton RUFC, little did we know what a treat was in store for us all. I had to google the exactly the location of New Brighton Rufc and whilst scouring the interweb, I stumbled upon many headlines regarding the ‘Victorian seaside resort’, one even stated ‘New Brighton became a weekend retreat for many of the fun seekers’ (like Ibiza perhaps) it even had a Tower and a Ballroom, oh how very Strictly come Darncing darling, the tower at the time was the tallest building in the country even though it was dismantled shortly after WW1, the ballroom remained until the late 1960’s, I can only imagine a heady mixture of the ‘Shard’ London, Blackpool and ‘Amnesia’ with a little touch of liverpudlian humor to set it off.

A very cold and wet morning in New Brighton:


A hardy bunch of thirteen players travelled to New Brighton for the penultimate match before Christmas. Ice creams on the famous New Brighton beach were quickly forgotten as both teams were greeted with Icelandic winds, heavy rain and at times hail. The emphasis for the morning was to keep warm, the matches short and to retire to the club house as soon as possible for the post match hot dog.


Both teams put in excellent performances against determined New Brighton sides. Northwich showed excellent ability in the loose play to steal possession of the ball, resulting in narrow victories for both teams. All coaches were immensely impressed with how both the U7’s and U8’s are developing as teams, but more importantly how no one complained about the freezing weather (with the exception of the ever patient parent’s!).


Man of the Match was awarded to one of our newest players – Harley, for his excellent team work.

Northwich extended their run of league wins to 8 at Clay Lane the home of Bowdon RUFC. For 30 minutes the Blacks produced the best rugby of the season followed by controlled indifference. On a superb surface the visitors revelled in being able to move the ball with skill and pace. With Richard Dale away on holiday the decision to play the versatile Houghton in the Centre proved inspirational. He relished the opportunity to run the ball at every opportunity and showed there is no answer for pace.

We are holding our pre-match Christmas Lunch on 13th December prior to the match against the current League leaders, Altrincham Kersal. The lunch is sponsored by our Vice President, Mr Ron McLaverty and, hence, is also our Vice President’s lunch 2014.


The meal will be held in the lounge area and after the game this area will be cleared to make way for a bar and our annual Xmas Jumper Party.
