Match Preview – Wharfedale v Macclesfield

October 19th, 2018 Comments off

Strange as it may seem, we are now a quarter of the way through the season and the Greens, with three wins and four defeats, are sitting in tenth spot in the table. For the travelling faithful that made the trip to the very impressive Stourton Park last Saturday, it was a feeling of lightning not striking just twice but a third time as a last kick of the game penalty took away, what would have been, a deserved extra bonus point. Remember Hinckley and then Ionians where the exact same thing happened. Lack of discipline? Sheer bad luck? Not getting the rub of the green? Who knows, but those extra points could and would have seen Wharfedale higher in the league and a couple of wins off top spots? All if’s and but’s and maybe’s!! That is what makes life in National 2 North so unpredictable and exciting.

This coming weekend sees us welcome Macclesfield to the Avenue. The men from Priory Park have, surprisingly, struggled this term and managed just the solitary victory, a 5 try home win against Otley, to show for their efforts. Currently they sit towards the bottom end of the table but the Blues will be looking to rectify that situation and start picking up points and climb the ladder.

A Macclesfield Rugby Club was formed in 1877, although the present club dates back to 1927. They moved to their current headquarters at Priory Park in 1980 and run four, very successful, senior sides and a full mini and juniors section.

We have met on ten previous occasions with honours even at 5 wins for each side. Home advantage has proved vital for both clubs as at The Avenue it’s played 5 with 4 wins for the Greens, the same figures in reverse at Priory Park.

Kick off this coming Saturday is 3.00pm and we ask for your support in what is expected to be a hard and closely fought contest.

The team selection is as follows: – 1. J Altham, 2. D Stockdale, 3. R Ward, 4. G Hedgley, 5. B Leacock, 6. C Walker, 7. J Tyson, 8. J Burridge, 9. S Gaudie, 10. J Blakeney – Edwards, 11. O Cicognini, 12. R Lovegrove, 13. H Bullough, 14. R Hamilton, 15. T Mann.

Replacements: – 16. J Hirst, 17. G Martin, 18. E Stockton, 19. W Edwards, 20. P Woodhead.
