A note of thanks from the Manchester Club to the Littleborough Club.

Just want to record our thanks to Littleborough 3rds for helping us out on Saturday, we decided to travel short of players fielding 12 in the end, a daunting task when you are playing the top club away whilst languishing at the bottom end.


They ensured we started the game with 15 players and despite us losing 3 further players to injury they kept the numbers even.  As ever they were great hosts both during and after the game, their pie, peas, chips and gravy, are well up there in the culinary highlights of the season.

This exemplifies the true spirit of your league system and rugby in general, hopefully you can acknowledge this in some way on the website.
