Under 13’s Motivational Team Talk

Leading into our most important fixture of the season, a quarter final of the Cheshire Plate against Northwich, the Under 13’s had a bit of a pep talk from their Kiwi head coach Martin Fitzgerald.  We were knocked out in the first round of the cup by last year’s runners up Bowdon with a stunning running rugby display.  We’ve taken that on board and learned our lessons, in all other competitions this season, the Under 13’s have a win loss record of played 13 with 9 wins and four losses with a points difference of +185.  This is our biggest test to date and a place in the semi-finals beckons.

RFU Recognition for our Club Charity and Dave Hulme

Our club Charity The Alex Hulme Foundation and the Dad of Alex, our Vice Chair of Minis and Juniors have been recognised by the RFU for the amazing work he and his family have done in contributing to the community and to local rugby.  We are all immensely proud of Dave, Nic and Matt for all that they do for the club and for the community at large. As our Chair of Minis and Juniors said today,

Well done Dave you guys are an inspiration. I am proud to call you my friend. I see first hand the effort and hard work you put in to everything you do. I love working working with you side by side as we run and develop Sale FC Rugby’s M&Js together.

This charity, gives all of its money to research and does not pay any salaries.  With a relatively modest ambition of raising £20,000 for research into Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, over the past few years they have raised more than £250,000. This is a remarkable achievement for a local charity and we are immensely proud that every player at Sale FC, from 5 years old to the first team, sports their logo on the back of our shirts.
