In the eyes of those who should know about these things Eccles RFC have been placed second runner up (i.e. third) in the Camra Greater Manchester Club of the Year competition.
This is as a result of winning the North Manchester Branch Club of the Year. This put us forward to the Greater Manchester area award. By my calculations there were seven clubs (of various types) on the ballot paper. To be placed so highly in our first year of consideration is no mean feat and still gives us something to go for in the coming years.
If you don’t understand the title of the post you’ll be hopeless as a spin doctor.
Well done to all involved especially to “you know who” behind the bar and her evil attack dog.
For the record; first place went to Bolton Ukrainian Club and second place went to Stalybridge Labour Club.
