Stockport u15's retain the Cheshire Cup

Port 15's win the Cup 4 years in a row


Stockport U15s on the back of success in winning the Dove / KIA International Tournament in Portugal, have done our Club proud and got through to the Final of the Cheshire Cup at Stockport ! The Lads were hoping to retain the Cup for the Fourth year in a row, with
Birkenhead Park RUFC making the Final.
Not knowing too much about these lads from the Wirral, but having played them just twice in the two years they have been formed ! We rightly did not take them for granted ! On an incredibly hot day in May ! plus some slightly over zealous whistle blowing and card showing ! all resulting in a great leveller to the game, and what a great and fitting Cup final it was !
The first half saw Stockport score twice, and have one try rightly disallowed , but every time we scored, So did Birkenhead ! Then ! they scored followed by kicking a penalty ! which left us going into half time, down 12-24.
What was great was the reaction of the Stockport lads who then came out firing on all cylinders to not let Birkenhead score again, but score 32 points in the second half ! Birkenhead never gave up though ! and were a credit to themselves their Coaches and Parents. It was a truly fitting final, I think everybody who watched were treated to something quite special ! A Great Squad / team performance by these lads capping another great season for the U15s !
We start pre season training pretty much straight away with regrouping and planning next season and hope to continue in our success.

We are also looking to grow the squad.
Please contact, Head Coach, Nick Brown if your son is interested in joining this great set of Lads.
