Cinderford travels north to play Macclesfield
Saturday 12 January KO 3.00pm (National 1)

Cinderford heads north this weekend for their national one fixture away to Macclesfield.
In an upbeat mood and looking forward to the challenging game on Saturday, albeit with wintery weather conditions forecast, Andy Deacon, director of rugby said:

“After our impressive win last week against Rosslyn Park, and a good week at training, it is with renewed confidence that we step up our campaign to push further up the league table as we play Macclesfield this Saturday away. Although bottom of the division, it doesn’t accurately reflect their ability having beaten Blackheath at home earlier in the season. This league throws up all sorts of anomalies and no game is a given. It’s a tough league and we can’t ever be complacent. The game plan is to repeat our performance away at Sedgley Park and improve our away form.”

“Guys that have come into the side have earned their merit and retained their places. Competition in the squad is ever increasing with players coming back from injury and a strong United side pushing for selection each week. It’s great to see Tom Bozzard featuring highly in the division’s try scoring table, making our front row the highest scoring ‘FR’ in the league, and also Lloyd Stapleton and Mark Davies for recognition in kicking and points.”

This Saturday, dual registered back rower, Rob Langley, from Gloucester, who started training with the Foresters last week comes on to the bench after a good outing for United, who beat Old Luctonians last Saturday. The rest of the side remains the same as last week’s starting line up.
