We Stand Together

#WeStandTogether is a hashtag synonymous with remembering the atrocities at the Manchester Arena.  This same symbolism is illustrated with the Manchester Bee icon on our first team playing shirts at Manchester Rugby via ACROBAT | FCSM’s sponsorship and this new funding regime. A community fund has been created to support local communities affected by the Manchester attack on 22nd May 2017.  The Fund will assist local groups and organisations to host events and manage initiatives to counter hate and emerging unrest and should look to promote cohesion within communities.

The Club has embraced this Initiative and is delighted to announce through liaison with THE GREATER MANCHESTER HIGH SHERIFF’S POLICE TRUST, it has been granted funding to our Minis and Juniors Section, to allow a dedicated inter-faith day.  This, whereby we build on our already tried and tested philosophy of bringing communities together across Greater Manchester and illustrate the many benefits to enjoying the beautiful game which is rugby.  More details will be announced shortly.  But people interested in knowing more and being registered for this initiative can email Adrian Stores at manchesterugby@acrobatfcsm.com in the meantime.

Off to Stoke

The S’PORT played its first ever adults volleyball match this Weekend.  What a place to start with an away fixture against Newcastle Staffs – a Club established in 1980 and one of the Country’s leading organisations.  Whats more, the Match was against a Division 1 side and Stockport Volleyball Club has started in Division 3 North.  So the background was set.

The Day didn’t start well with a Rail strike affecting transport and one player didn’t make it to the Venue.  Nevertheless, the players did the S’PORT proud.  The final result was a defeat but with Stockport showing real promise and winning 15, 21 and 22 points respectively in each game. Indeed, in the second Game, the S’PORT were winning 16-10 at one point!

We thank Newcastle Staffs for its hospitality and welcoming and wish them future success in the forthcoming rounds of this National Cup.
