This weekend we see our penultimate league game at home. This needs to be a big win for us, to ensure we move towards securing a home playoff. The team is now up and as special treat for Sale Sharks Season ticket holders, if you bring your card, it’s £5 on the gate. Non-members is £8 and Concessions is £5. Sale FC members and under 16’s are as always free.
Kick Off is 3pm!
With four games to go, Sale FC have sealed second spot in the league and therefore confirmed their playoff place for National One promotion. This was a six try blitz of the third placed team in the league who’ve been on good form this season. Click here for A full match report

Our Team Sheet
This evening at Heywood road, KO 7:30pm we have a “Question of Sharks”. Raising money for the Alex Hulme Foundation. The charity event will feature England U20’s Stars past and present with Tom Curry, Ben Curry, Will Addison and James Mitchell.
Sale FC have a mixed panel of past players and current board members representing and hoping that Age and Wisdom (cheating) will overcome youth and knowledge. See you down there!
As there was no game this weekend, we’ve taken some highlights of Liam McGovern and turned them into a little highlights trailer ahead of the Sedgley Park game next weekend.
Sale FC 63 v Wharfedale 22
This was a match with 13 tries and a home debut for Paolo Odogwu, for those of you who were there, we now know what all the fuss was about. 16 stone of Paolo in full flow is something that I’m sure Wharfedale will be quite comfortable not seeing again anytime soon. Having said that, Wharfedale went home with a bonus point from four tries, two from long range intercepts.

Most of the tries from the weekend
The Sale FC U10s and 9s 2017 WHY-EYE-MAN Tour to the North East last weekend was a fantastic success. Rugby rightly prides itself on the core values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship and throughout the tour weekend, these values were on show in bucket loads.

This weekend we have our return fixture against Wharfedale. One of the tightest games of the season with a brace of tries by Chris Townsend, we managed to sneak past Wharfedale 18-13. This weekend we are hoping for a little more than that. At this stage of the season, every point counts.
