Marple RUFC Colts bring home 4 trophies!!
Congratulations to this year’s Marple U19's senior colts, who've had a storming end to the season and have gone out with a bang under the “wiley” influence and knowledge of coaches: Steve Palmer, Rob Barker and John Harrison Snr, all stalwarts of Marple RUFC.
The Senior Colts accolades this season include:
1) Raging Bull North West League D winners. (Beating  Oldham and Littleborough to the title)
2) Lancashire and Cheshire League Cup Plate Final winners. (48- 22 v Ormskirk)
3) Raging Bull “Cock of the North” Bowl Final winners. (21- 5 v Wigan)
The club also secured:
4) The “Granny Sunderland” Challenge Cup by beating local rivals Stockport Senior Colts heavily on their way to winning the Lancashire and Cheshire Plate.

Marple U 19’s also reached the Cheshire Cup Semi-Final, only narrowly losing out to Raging Bull A division powerhouse club Chester RUFC, after beating several higher division teams in this successful season.
This is an unprecedented level of success for a small village/town community based club, which is punching weigh well above its weight. It was also the finale to this team’s youth rugby great way to go out for the lads before many go off to college/Uni or start playing for the senior teams.
