A very long season ended with a “reccy” to the Manchester 7s Tournament, having not played a 7s match for 2 years nor training in advance for the event, things were always going to be difficult. With most of the squad on their D of E weekend the hardy band of nine took to the field against opposition from Ampthill, Egremont, Rugby and Didsbury, all teams we had never played before.
The transition from 15 aside to 7s proved difficult with players holding the ball too long but despite tries for Elis Vickery and Dan Tyrrell the Blacks succumbed to Egremont B, 35 – 14.
Ampthill were next up but mistakes and not looking after the ball saw a 28 -0 defeat, the final group game saw the blacks blown away by Rugby St Andrews, with Jack Kennerley getting a deserved consolation try 49 – 5.
Much confusion over how the organisers sorted the quarter final plate draw, we thought we were playing Telford yet we ended up play Didsbury Toc H and again size counted in another 49 – 5 defeat. Man of the Day Josh Conway rounding the day off though with a try.
An interesting experience, well organised and the weather favoured everyone involved, well done to the lads for sticking at it.

A strange addition to the Cheshire Cup was the introduction of the Vase final, both Park and Northwich had lost in the Plate competition and Cheshire RFU sportingly gave the lads a big day out in a fixture that has not been played for the last two seasons.
