Sale v South Leicester

Our home fixture was a chance for revenge against a team we’ve never beaten.  They have always seemed to have the upper hand and this match seemed no different when a series of errors saw South Leicester run a try after only 15 Read more here

Sale overcome Preston Grasshoppers

Sale now have as many wins (12) this season as they did for the whole of last season with one home game to go before we finish 2016. In fact last season Preston beat us away and drew against us at home so this weekend’s result was a pleasant reversal of fortunes.

Even though there were three tries and a penalty try for Sale in this fixture it wasn’t a spectators game.  Perhaps it was the fact that we were on a second team pitch stood ankle deep in the mud or the heavy pitch which kept the wingers honest, either way, it was a game for the purest not the newly converted.

Preston were a tough team who created few chances but defended resolutely throughout.  We could just as easily have lost this game and if it were last year, we probably would have.  There were a few flash points and a five yellow cards (three for us).

High points included the step up from the 2nd XV for Druw Fray who managed to make his debut for Sale 1st XV for picking up a yellow card 30 minutes after coming on as a substitute for Gaz Rawlings who went off injured. All in all this was a pleasing win against a strong team who really shouldn’t be propping up the National 2 North League Table.

Sale FC V Caldy Result

This was a scintillating encounter with a good sized crowd down at Heywood Road.  The weather was mild and the pitch was nicely playable.  Caldy brought a sizeable following with them including their very vocal 2nd Team players whose match was cancelled. When Sale FC took the lead with 20 minutes remaining it looked like an unlikely win at home against a very strong Caldy team. Unfortunately, some uncharacteristic errors and a few missed decisions under pressure meant the lead was relinquished at the 68 minute mark. To add insult to injury Caldy then secured the bonus point with their fourth try with less than 10 minutes to go leaving Sale FC without a bonus point.

Saturday’s game was one of much potential which ended with a good win by Caldy who showed why they’re currently favourites to be promoted to National One.

Congratulations must also go to our Under 9’s team who managed to raise over £250 for their tour later in the year thanks to the generosity of both home and away fans.
