A New Chapter at Sale FC
Following conversations between Touch Rugby team Manchester Chargers and Sale FC Rugby Executive, we are delighted to announce that Manchester Chargers will be joining Sale FC Rugby to form Sale FC Rugby Chargers.
Founded in 2009, Manchester Chargers Touch Rugby Club is a sociable group of players enjoying all forms of rugby. The club has been successful in several Local and National Tournaments. They also boast current and past Internationals.
Sarah Bellow and Gregg Cropper the founders and coaches of Manchester Chargers said;
Joining forces with Sale FC Rugby is an incredible opportunity for Manchester Chargers. To be associated with a club with such a rich sporting heritage is fantastic for our current members. It also fabulous for the growth of Touch Rugby in the North West. To be able to share the world-class facilities at Carrington and Heywood Road will help the club and our players to go from strength to strength. We’ve been given a warm welcome and, as a club, we are delighted that Touch is now part of the rugby family at Sale FC.
Sale FC Chargers
Sale FC Rugby Chairman Scott Bambrick stated that,
Over the past few seasons we have seen the club successfully introduce Sale FC 1861, Sale FC Vikings and more recently Sale FC 1861 M&Js and we are delighted to extend our rugby family with the inclusion of Sale FC Chargers. Having spent time in discussions with Sarah and Gregg, it was clear to the Exec that Chargers hold the same values as Sale FC. We all believe that inclusivity, friendliness, and rugby for all is at the core of what we do.
This a great fit and offers existing members the opportunity to get involved in touch rugby whatever their age. I am also pleased to announce that Sarah will take on the role of ‘Vice Chair of Rugby (Chargers)’. This will enable her to represent Sale FC Chargers as an integral part of our growing rugby section.
Please note that currently Chargers are training at Wright Robinson College and will be moving to Carrington on Wednesday evenings in April. Our club members can join them training before then. For more information you can email Sarah at Chargers@salefc.com or you can follow the link here Chargers
