A Christmas Feast At Heywood Road

Saturday the 23rd of December was arguably the best day Sale FC have had since we gained promotion to National 2 North. 1500 People came down to meet the new signing, drink in the new clubhouse, 175 people for pre-match lunch and watch Sale FC overcome a powerful Tigers team in a tense encounter.

Sedgley Tigers were one of only two teams to defeat Sale FC this season and the return fixture was an absolute arm wrestle until the final 20 when Sale turned on the power and sent first Danny Birchall over the line and then the returning Jake Barron touched down following two penalties from Chris Johnson who had yet another fine kicking display.  Sedge never really looked like crossing the line against a Sale team with the best defensive record in the National Leagues, even camped on the Sale FC line for ten minutes so no panic from the home team, the final play of the game however, say a rare mistake from Chris Johnson who looking for space over the back three, misjudged his kick and Tigers winger Samuel Lowthion slipped a tackle, and used his pace to get Tigers their bonus point.

Chris Johnson has had some early season hiccups, but, since his showing against Tigers and Tynedale , he’s arguably the best 10 in the league not just by keeping the scoreboard ticking over, but the control of the game which Sale has been missing for the last couple of seasons.  His kicks into the corner coupled with the Line Out skills of Rhys, Gaz and Jake have made depressing viewing for many opposition supporters.  A full match report is now here

The Suite @ Sale Update 30th November

The 28th January 2018 is our official launch, but we’ve got a few events prior to that coming up before then including our New Year’s Eve party and with any luck the match against Sedgley Tigers where pre-match meals are nearly sold out!

The windows/doors are being put in today and they look amazing! I don’t think people will recognise the club.

 

2018 at Sale is looking better than ever!
