WPRFC What’s On this weekend..

By James Neill

Only one game this Easter weekend..

Saturday 20th April

1st Team
Away v Crewe & Nantwich, 2pm K.O.

This Saturday is the Cheshire Bowl final, held at New Brighton RFC. We always have fantastic support for our Cup finals and would appreciate as many club members as possible travelling to join us at the game. We have a full Squad of players to select from and are expecting a close encounter against Crewe who play in the same level league as Park but in the Midlands division.

The fixture has a bit more spice than normal as our Head Coach, Matt Farr, has played for Crewe as well as Park, as has his brother John, who is the Head Coach at Crewe. It will make for an interesting encounter on the touchline. Mrs Farr will no doubt be in attendance to make sure they both behave themselves

Last weekend we ended the season with a great victory against Liverpool who we think will be relegated from the League. The win cemented our 6th place position in the league with 1 fixture remaining which is away against Fleetwood on 27 April.

Our 2nd & 3rd team both lost to Northwich & Congleton in two good games. All 3 teams were at home for the first time in many years and it was a fantastic day to end the season
The second team have 1 final game away at Didsbury on 27th April.
