Sale FC vs Blaydon Rugby A Day of Firsts

There are three firsts tomorrow.

Sale FC play their first ever game against Blaydon RUFC tomorrow with a KO at 2:15pm.

It is also a landmark day for the club, because for the first time ever.  An ex Minis and Junior Player will be starting for the club.

John Blanchard Jr has impressed enough over the past few games that he makes his way off the bench and starts for Sale FC in a big game at Heywood Road.

This is a massive step forward for the club.  We have had an M&J group for around 8 years now and in the early days when John started there were less than 50 kids training all down at Heywood Road every Sunday morning.  Since those days, we have taken off and hopefully John is the first of many children who will make the step up from Sunday morning run around with their mates to playing National Level rugby.  Well Done Blanny Jr!

We also have another first tomorrow for a Sale player stepping up from the bench to 1st team rugby for the first time this season.  Slightly different journey for player coach Neil Briggs however, via Sale Sharks, Leicester Tigers, London Welsh and Bourgoin.

The Suite @ Sale Update 30th November

The 28th January 2018 is our official launch, but we’ve got a few events prior to that coming up before then including our New Year’s Eve party and with any luck the match against Sedgley Tigers where pre-match meals are nearly sold out!

The windows/doors are being put in today and they look amazing! I don’t think people will recognise the club.


2018 at Sale is looking better than ever!


Sale FC Rugby Vs Wharfedale

Yesterday we hosted Wharfedale at Heywood road in what turned out to be another five points for Sale FC.  We still remain in 5th Position in the table, but with only 2 points separating the top five!

We saw the return of Neil Briggs to Heywood Road in his first game of the season after injury and he managed to score a try providing more evidence that fashion is temporary by class is permanent,

This season has seen a massive push down at Sale FC and although we are still fifth in the table our defensive record and points difference is miles ahead of the rest of the league.

Sale FC have conceded only 154 points this season whereas Tynedale who lead the league have conceded 242 points.

Our points difference is 226 to Tynedale and Hinckley who are both on 186.
