  • Update from Makeni

    Update from Makeni

    17th October 2014

    May we start by expressing our amazement at the generosity that we have been reading about from so many people. It must be hard for people to understand how slow the processing of goods into the country is, but it has greatly improved from when we used to wait for months before they had been cleared through customs. I hope this will give you courage that your generous donations will get to us soon as Suffian our clearing agent has a lot of experience in this field and is confident that he will be able to get them to us very soon.

    1st XV team performance

    16th October 2014

    A heavily depleted 1st XV lost at home to Altrincham Grammar by 5 tries to one. Playing up the slope and into a strong wind the 1st XV looked well set with ten minutes to go of the first half. In fact from a strong position of a Saints lineout on the opposition line we managed to concede a try thirty seconds later! Two further tries from very poor tackling meant a strong position had been all but blown by half-time. Read More

    1st XV update

    6th October 2014

    The 1st XV have had an eventful few weeks, comprehensively beating our Christian Brother rivals St Edwards by 37 Points to 5 but then losing to a very spirited Birkenhead School 25 20 in an entertaining game. Due to the constant nature of injuries to the first team squad a number of Year 11s have been handed debuts in recent weeks with Ben Meredith, Alex Luxon-Kewley and try scorer Matthew McAndrew all having excelled and stood up to be counted under difficult circumstances.
