This is how it feels

In the name of a famous Inspiral Carpets song ‘ this is how it feels’…to be happy. I could not be more proud of our combined Stockport Volleyball and Frodsham Volleyball clubs. They rose to the challenge in a galant performance against a strong US/Canada squad.

Let’s put things in perspective. Never before had ‘Frodport’ (name conjured up by Jane) played together and on such a big court with official National Volleyball League Referee, Abdul. Our opposition as well as being older, train four times a week and had been playing for 4 years. We, in comparison, around 6 months to one year with occasional training.

NBC were a credit to their Organisation. The girls showed personality and dedication against clear ‘under dogs’. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and one that our young people can only benefit from. A big heart felt applause to each and every player. Culmimated by the clear , MVP, Ruby from Frodsham, handing a commemorative trophy to the victors Coach, Morgan.  Thank you to Life Leisure, all parents and our reliable volunteers, Matt, Seb and Tim. The final set allowed teams to be mixed up for a closer scoreline. Morgan completed with an inspirational chat and encouraging words for our beginners.

An exciting, high scoring, action packed team sport. Engage with this National Governing Body (NGB) and reach your audience(s), achieve your objectives and develop the sport.

One of the most rapidly growing pastimes in England. In 2010, there were 25 school-based teams – now over 1,400 all baring testimony to its popularity.

Three Cheers for Marlow Braide

The aged, under 10s squad of children at Manchester Rugby are literally celebrating after they received new kits courtesy of the generous sponsorship by Edgeley-based solicitors Marlow Braide.  Pictured alongside is the boys cheering this kind gesture with Founder and Owner, Rachael Braide.

Adrian Stores, Head of Partnerships at the Club said: “Manchester Rugby Club is very grateful for the support and sponsorship Marlow Braide has provided the Club this Season. Rachael Braide has supported one of the younger age groups and through acknowledging the Mini and Junior section  maybe helped the next generation of Manchester Rugby Club Senior players and hopefully a few more Premiership and England Stars.”

Manchester Rugby Club is a club rich with tradition dating back to 1860. The support of Marlow Braide has enabled the traditional kit of the Club, cherry and white hoops, to be restored.  Manchester Rugby Club was honoured to have been named Rugby World Club of the Year.  It is the second oldest rugby union club in the World.  The strong community commitment is clear with teams from Under 7s to Senior Rugby, for men, women, girls and boys. The Club has the whole range of teams that not many clubs can boast. The Mini and Junior (M&J) section has recently produced some amazing talent with 4 Premiership rugby players (more than any other club in England) and 6 England players in the last 5 years.
