Rugbytots comes to Sale FC Rugby


Sale FC Rugby are proud to be linking up with Rugbytots to offer a rugby experience to even more children in the local area. These classes will take place on Sunday mornings starting on the 18th Nov, at the CorpAcq Stadium, the home of Sale FC Rugby. It is a fantastic opportunity for children aged 2-5 years old to come along and have some fun. For a brilliant Sale FC Rugby members discount, please email

Our motto is simple; “make it more fun”. We do this by delivering our specifically designed programme for each age group with energy, enthusiasm and excitement. This creates an atmosphere in the class that is totally unique and engaging for parents and children alike.

Alex Hulme Foundation Ball is a Star!

£8000 Raised for Research!

Our Club Charity, The Alex Hulme Foundation Held their annual Star Ball last Saturday and with a great show of support from Sale FC Rugby through donations of prizes and some hefty bids, including an Autographed Shirt of Sam Tuitupou and the return flights from Manchester to New York (Kindly donated by Virgin Airways) they managed to raise £8000 for the charity on the night.  This is another stunning total raised for research done by Suzanne Turner at Cambridge University.

Unlike most charities these days, every penny raised by the Foundation goes towards research so no other children die from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Alex’s Dad, Dave is our General Manager and Under 16’s manager who you can see pretty much every day at Heywood Road.  His other son, Matt plays for our Under 16’s.
