Stockport through to the 1st round proper of the Cheshire Cup
Champions Stockport began their defence of the Cheshire Cup by hosting Caldy B on a sunny but cold morning at Headlands Road. Due to unforeseen rain overnight, the match was moved onto the 1st XV pitch and some of the rugby produced by the home side deserved to be seen on that grandest stage.
Stockport ran out winners however the attention was in the detail with the team pairing short powerful punches with a lovely ability to move the ball cleanly and swiftly from both sides of the pitch resulting in plenty of attacking option with threats dotted throughout the team. The introduction of the substitutes made no difference to the performance and now Stockport roll onto the next round against..........Caldy A!!!
