Ten teams representing the U7 & U8’s of Helsby RUFC, Congleton RUFC and Mold RUFC gathered at Moss Farm to take on the four Northwich home teams. With so many players and their supporters, Moss Farm was a hive of activity similar to a tag rugby festival. All that was missing was the Ice Cream van!

All Northwich players put forward a spirited and determined performance in all their matches. With this week’s emphasis on communication and awareness on the pitch, the four Northwich sides made great progress in organising their defensive lines and supporting players with the ball. After a round robin of three matches for each team, hot dogs in the club house were a welcome reward for their efforts.

In the U7’s Mickey and Harley were awarded ‘Certificates of Greatness’ for their excellent determination whilst Mac was awarded ‘Man of the Match’ for his straight running.

In the U8’s Jack, Connor, Ashley & Tom were awarded ‘Certificates of Greatness’ for their determination and efforts to get their team mates organised, whilst Seth was awarded ‘Man of the Match’ for his excellent running.

A special thanks must go to all the parents who stepped forwards to help organise and co-ordinate a very busy morning.

The young blacks produced a steely performance against a very useful Welsh side in an energy sapping contest at Moss Farm. The two teams had not met before as Shotton have only recently put their side together but on this showing they have learnt very quickly and will prove formidable opponents for many sides.

Northwich were under no illusions when they set out for their encounter with Glossop. The Derbyshire outfit have always proved formidable opposition. Last season they beat the Blacks on both occasions so the lads knew what they would be in for. This was proved to be the case, as in the first half the home side had a stranglehold on the match that looked impossible to shake. However there is real character in this side and they eventually overcame the opposition to record the sixth league win on the bounce.

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.

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.
