Sale FC National One Games

Sale FC 2 Cotton Trader Championship

Sale 1861 NC1 North West

Sale FC Junior Colts

Sale 1861 Enter the League

The club are pleased to announce that our 1861 Ladies team have been granted league entry by the RFU for the upcoming season. The team has the backing of both Sale FC Rugby and Sale Sharks and over the past 12 months has grown in both stature and size and will be playing National Challenge 1 North West.

We would however, like to highlight our disappointment that the RFU decided that we will only be entered at level 4. This is despite the strong case we made to play at a higher level, backed up with documented evidence of our infrastructure and squad. We felt that for the good of the game in the area, that a level 3 entry should have been offered.

However, as a club we accept the decision and will now focus our efforts to support 1861 Director of Rugby Andy Hughes, the coaches and the 40 strong squad of players as they look to gain promotion in their first competitive season. The fixture list is now out and I urge you all to come along and support the 1861 down at the CorpAcq throughout the season. 

Sale 1861 Confirm 4 Signings

Ahead of pre-season training on the 2nd July Sale 1861 are delighted to announce four new signings to the team.

Nikki Cowell, Cath Ansell, Lyndsey Dorries and Helen Johnson sign for Sale 1861 in their first season of competition. We will be releasing the fixture list over the next week so people can get involved in the joint venture between Sale FC Rugby and Sale Sharks.

These signings follow the appointment of Joey Edwards and Andy Hughes to the executive team.

Stone Gets the Reggae Vibe

Stone Priestley-Nangle has represented Jamaica Sevens for the last two years as they endeavour to qualify for Olympics. He’s the latest in a long line of international players to come from Sale FC Rugby and the second Jamaican international after Anthony “Bingo” Bingham who went to the Commonwealth Games.

We manage to get some time with Stone before he had a well deserved break from Rugby prior to pre-season training.

I captained the team at the Olney 7s festival last week. At 110kg playing 15s I’m an average size and then I get on the 7s pitch and I’m the heaviest player by a mile.

We asked what the best thing about being involved in the Jamaican set up was, he was quite clear it was all about qualifying for the Olympics, but at the same time, the spirit was incredibly important.

The best thing about Jamaica is the reggae vibe and creating fresh history as year upon year we have improved in the tournaments we enter and tournaments we get in.

His long term goal is obviously the Olympics but short term there’s the small matter of trying to compete in the biggest 7’s tournament in the world. The Hong Kong 7’s.

I’m Hoping to play in the Hong Kong tournament in April following in Bingo’s footsteps, which would be a big stepping stone to being selected for the Olympics if we qualify.
