Wharfedale 35-25 Macclesfield – On a sunny but breezy afternoon at the Avenue, Wharfedale ran out winners in a closely fought and entertaining game.

Macclesfield opened the scoring when Nyemba crossed for a try converted by Morton. A knock on from the restart gave Dale field position and Gaudie sniped over for an unconverted try.

The home side took the lead when Hedgley went over after good work by Mann and Tyson. 10-7.

The Blues came back strongly with another converted try from Parry. Solid forward play from Wharfedale laid the platform for Cicognini to score out wide. The conversion hit the bar before more good link work saw Bullough cross for the fourth try.

Half time came with the home side leading 20-14.

With both sides looking better with ball in hand and with Morton starting to run the show, Macclesfield clawed back 3 points with a successful penalty.

More good play from Macclesfield saw them regain the lead with a try by the impressive Davies. 20-22. The Greens scrummage then took command and after a number of infringements, Burridge crossed from a push over. Blakeney-Edwards was successful with the conversion as he was with a penalty following a further scrum indiscretion.

A good break from Rees saw Macclesfield awarded a penalty which brought the score to 30-25 going into the final stages.

A breakaway try from Woodhead on the stroke of full time saw Wharfedale run out winners by 35-25

Two New Signings

October 7th, 2018 Comments off

We are delighted to bring supporters up to date with two exciting signings since the start of the season.

Will Edwards (above) made his debut at centre in the pre-season friendly with Rotherham Titans and registered with the club just in time for our first league match at Peterborough Lions, where he started at 10 and kicked two conversions in the 26-12 win. Further good performances at home to Sedgley Park and in the defeat at Hull Ionians after missing two games with injury mark Will out as a player of great promise. Originally in the junior ranks at Selby RUFC, Will is currently studying at Durham University where he is a close friend of Will Lawn.

Jack Blakeney-Edwards (above) is a 10/12 who joined the club in early October and kicked 14 points in an assured debut against Preston Grasshoppers. Originally from London, Jack moved to Kendal as a youngster and played in the juniors at Kirkby Lonsdale before earning a rugby scholarship to Durham School and being picked up for the Newcastle Falcons Academy. As a student in Leeds, he played for Otley and then signed for Darlington Mowden Park where, despite limited 1st XV opportunities, he was selected for the Yorkshire County squad in 2018 and greatly impressed our coaching duo of Jon Feeley and Jon Skurr. Jack spent the summer playing for Sydney club Gordon Highlanders in the New South Wales Shute Shield and, on his return, played a couple of games for Kendal before deciding to commit to Wharfedale.
