Close fought encounter by too well match teams.
With a slightly weakened side due to injuries Manchester entertained our local friends from Wilmslow in a friendly training game. With the last encounter resulting in a severe drubbing for the home team it is a mark of the progress Manchester has made that the two teams were locked together on 17 points at the final play. Electing to push for the win Manchester tried to move the ball wide but poor handling resulted in a turnover that 3 phases later Wilmslow turned into a try.
Manchester are grateful to Wilmslow for helping there preparations for the serious business of Lancashire Cup which begins in two weeks time and wish them the very best of luck for the forthcoming season.
