Countdown to the Cheshire Cup final

The 1st XV have been putting the finishing touches to their preparations for this Sunday’s Cheshire Cup final.

The boys take on Lymm High School at the 12,000 seater AJ Bell Stadium in Salford ahead of Sale Sharks’ home European Rugby Champions Cup tie against Saracens.

The squad kicked off their Cheshire Cup campaign with a dominant display against Wirral Grammar School as they secured a 30 point victory with a 54-24 score line.

They then faced King’s School, Macclesfield and it was a much closer affair with our boys emerging victorious 18-15 courtesy of tries from George Lyth and Tom Travis and points from the boot of Pat Chatterton.

Speaking ahead of the cup decider, head of rugby Mr Hugo Corbett said: “The boys targeted reaching the Cheshire Cup final at the start of the school year and they have worked extremely hard to achieve this goal. The opportunity to play in a premiership stadium is one that the boys will relish and we are all really looking forward to the experience.”

Our under 14 rugby boys also have a Cheshire Cup final to look forward to as they face King’s School, Macclesfield at Burnage Rugby Club on 5 January.
