College Rugby success 2021
 
A big thanks to all staff, pupils and parents for a superb term of rugby across all age groups. Plus, the outstanding efforts of groundsman Tommy McCann, Kevin and Julie Halewood for their work providing the refreshments!
 
The 1st XV made the NatWest national quarter-finals and have played 16 matches so far this season- winning 13 and losing 3. George H has been an excellent captain and alongside Chim O, Tom W, Jim C and Jack P, they have all represented Cheshire Under 18s. Whilst Year 11 flanker Will B has represented Cheshire Under 16s.
 
The 2nd XV has had a good season and a lot of players will be heavily involved in the New Year Under 17 fixtures and midweek games. Mr Duggan's side has suffered from opposition cry-offs and recently poor weather conditions preventing matches. Performance of the season was away at Altrincham Grammar in 35-10 victory.
 
Mr Hale's Under 15s have recorded some incredible scores and were very unlucky to go out of the NatWest Cup away at Merchant Taylors. Their record is played 11 won 8 and lost 3 and in five matches they have scored over fifty points!
 
The Under 14 -Year 9s have also recorded some superb score lines and their record is played 10, won 7, drawn 1 and lost 2. Captain Isaac W has been an inspirational captain and key player in the side.
 
The Year 8s played several matches at the end of last year's lockdown and were unbeaten. They have followed that form into Year 8 and have played nine matches this term winning 6, drawing 1 and losing 2. They are playing two sides every week and the commitment and numbers to training is really pleasing.
 
Finally, last but certainly not least the new Year 7s have been incredible this season. Mr Cubbin and ex- Ireland international Chris Saverimutto have worked hard since pre-season. Big numbers are training every week and we are putting out A B and C sides, but in truth we could put out five sides!
 
The Year 7A have remained unbeaten playing nine,  won 8 and drew 1 with points for 385 and only 80 against.  Recently, nearly 100 boys from Year 7 represented the College on a Saturday in Rugby, Cross-Country and Hockey!
