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.
This morning was a frosty start for many and some tough rugby was played. Notably the Under 13’s took on a powerful Bolton team and ran out 25-15 winners. We also saw Jack Moorhouse down working with some of the younger age groups this morning having played a tough game for Sale yesterday and winning against Sheffield Tigers. The minis and juniors really appreciate the input from players during training sessions and it was good to see Jack watching the Under 13’s match as well. One of the things that sets Sale FC apart is the willingness of people to chip in and help out others. We even had the Under 14’s coaching the under 6’s and 7’s today!
