Gents,quick update on a couple of things:- Firstly results are excellent,a lot down to you guys hitting training in numbers and helping Gaz and myself out regarding your availability early in the week so teams can be organised-THANKS ALL. We are going to pull the plug on the Strength and Conditioning at Astley if we don’t get double figures this coming Monday 27th, 7 til 8pm, which will be a crying shame when the ground is frozen and the latter end of hurricane SHIVERYOURBOLLOCKSOFF is doing its worse. Could those who still owe gym money see Val this weekend please. Talking of weekend-1s at home v unbeaten Southport meet 1.30pm, 3pm k.o for any much needed supporters, 2s take unbeaten record to Littleborough, meet 1pm, and 3s have a tricky game at North Manchester also 1pm meet. Apres game is our second players social-Real Ales and Cider on, El Classico/European Rugby on the goggle box (how could I forget X Factor Live shows-get in- Chloe Jasmine). Plus, to our many potential musicians hiding their fire under a Bushel (we know Baz can tinkle the ivories😉), bring down your instrument of choice and we can get a bit of an impromptu jamming session on the go (there is safe storage if you need to leave your instrument at the club that evening) All welcome. The Duvets lunch is selling well, please see Mark Hilton or myself for tickets-£20 per person or £150 for a table of 8. Please note we have brought the timings forward slightly 12 for 12.30pm on 8th November,to pack in all the treats Rick/Chris and Mr Cuttle have for you. Finally MOVEMBER, Ken will be setting up a Just Giving page and linking it to the website and Facebook pages. Start your Tash 1/11/14 and work towards the Shave Off Sat 29th Nov. Appropriate headwear to be worn on the 29th to off set your Tash eg.a thin greasy French number-a beret, a luxuriant big curly English rascal-a deerstalker etc. Photographer will be present to put together before and after gallery,and we are hoping for some celeb shavers-watch this space. Remember this is to help find cures for Male Testicular and Bowel Cancer-so lets get everyone involved. Keep working on paying memberships gents,see captains or managers we have a vastly improved situation,but while a lot of fundraising efforts are going towards the Fit 4 15 project, we still need to keep the every day running of your club central to your thoughts. Regards and see you for a beer Saturday, Tim.

Hi all, we have a warm up game against Oldham at home on Thursday, 6:00pm meet 7:00pm ko, for those that are available that have not let Gaz or Tim know please get in touch through this page. Thanks.
Just a reminder for everyone, interclub game tomorrow. This game is for playing members and so all of you should be looking to get involved. The game will be 4 x 20 minute quarters with mixed ability teams and unlimited interchanges. Players need to be at the club for 1:30 with ko being at 2:30. There will be the usual after game refreshments and, for those making an evening of it, there is a planned "Beer Walk" around the real ale boozers of Manchester city centre with the 6:17pm train from Stalybridge being the aim. Lets get everyone down to the club tomorrow. See you all there!
Lasagne & chicken pasta on tonight after training......
Hi everybody, a reminder for a few things this week: Wednesday 7 til 8 at Astley Sports Village, strength and conditioning training with Mark Storey. It is important we improve numbers on this as if we don't we will lose this great session that is showing results for those that have been going, but also we lose an indoor training facility that may prove invaluable during the winter months. Thursday 7 til 9 Blocksages, Wrestling for rugby session and spacial awareness with guest coach, lets please keep the great turnout up we've had on Thursdays. Saturday is the inter-club trial game. 1.30pm meet and a 3pm ko. This is for every playing member in the club and is a chance for everyone to get used to game conditions prior to competitive games starting at tge end of the month. Teams will be split evenly. As usual beers and BBQ straight afterwards and there is a planned beer walk around Manchester's lesser known real ale hostelries for those that fancy making a night of it. Hopefully see you all there!
Tomorrow is the Dukinfield RUFC Select vs Baz's International XV. Confirmed squad for Dukinfield, Sean Winch Mark Bowden Pete McGarry Dan Spiers Jordon Hunt Andy Valentine Rick Boorer Jonathan Holden Sean Eves Andrew Shepley Andrew Piddington Robbie Wilcox Gareth Callan John Horrocks Carl Dewsbury Adam Cumsty Aaron Jimenez Michael Howarth Matt Lindley Carl Booth and a few others to confirm. Please be at club no later than 1:30. If not playing please come down to support the first rugby of a packed pre-season schedule and get behind the senior club and enjoy what should be a fun afternoon. See you all there.
***************************************Training at Astley is cancelled this evening, Thursday as normal at the club this week *************************************** A squad will be selected after training tomorrow to play in sat game at the club. Even if your not selected get down for a beer & see what's going on at the club.
Is anybody able to lend a hand this afternoon for an hour about 4pm. We are hiring 50 chairs out to a function in Hyde to raise some funds for the club.
