Sam Stelmaszek

After five and half years with Sale FC Rugby, featuring in our promotion to National 1 last season, Sam (or Mr November) has signed for Macclesfield Rugby Club. He will be remembered for playing with passion and pride in the Sale FC shirt and we’re sure he’ll do the same at Macclesfield. Good Luck Sam

DoR Jonathan Keep says

Sam has been with us for 5 and half years and was an integral part of three promotions and will be missed. We wish him all the best at my old club Macclesfield.

Sam Says

I would like to thank all the players, coaches, fans and back room staff for all they have done for me over the past five and a half years. I wish them well in the future and will always support them. Signed Mr November


Chris Johnson Heads Home

Chris Johnson Signs For Huddersfield

After two and half seasons with over 420 points including more than 120 conversions, 50 penalties and 5 drop goals, Chris is heading back to Huddersfield to play in National 2 North. The birth of his son coupled with family/work life balance has meant that the commitment of National 1 travel and training was too much this season.

Chris says

Sale are a great club with great people and will continue to progress, where the club is now compared to when I joined is miles apart. Keepy and Tote need to take credit for that. The behind the scenes work to improve the ground and the increased crowds are also great to see.

He also touches on our National 2 North Championship win

To win the league was great and will be one of my greatest rugby memories.

We wish Chris all the best and we know Huddersfield will be delighted to have him back, not only because he is one of the highest points scorers in National League Rugby history with over 3100 points, but also as a leader on the pitch.

Ollie’s Back

This Saturday, Sale FC Rugby head down to Blackheath for an away match with a KO of 2pm. Blackheath are the oldest open Rugby Club in the world and as such were affectionately known as “Club” due to all other teams at the time being in Schools or closed organisations.

After rupturing his Achilles last season, Ollie Longmore is back in the side. There are three changes from last weeks loss against Birmingham Moseley. A Simon Griffiths injury opens the door for Ollie Longmore to come in and Dan Birchall is back in the match day after a week off last week.  read more here
