U15 Sam earns Sale Sharks and County call up.

Congratulations to Eccles RFC U15 Fly-Half Sam Crowther who was recently selected to represent Lancashire in fixtures against Cheshire (Sun 17th March) and Yorkshire (Sun 31st March). We also wish Sam the best of luck for 28th April when he will play for U15 Sale Sharks Academy vs Newcastle Falcons and Yorkshire Carnegie at Newcastle. Sam attends St Patrick’s RC High School and first registered to play with Eccles RFC in February 2010 when he was aged 6. Great to see the club’s home grown talent flourishing.

This season the Eccles RFC U15s finished 2nd in Pool B of the Junior Lancs Rugby Challenge and had five players at the Sales Sharks Manchester DPP (Jake Bushby, Sam Crowther, Henry Dutton, Euan Haynes and George Henderson). Sam was selected for the Sales Sharks player Development Group (SDG) and was selected, alongside his Eccles teammate Henry Dutton, for the provisional U15 Lancashire development squad following trials at Myerscough in January.

Well done to Sam and all the U15 lads. The club is proud of your achievements.


  1. Mum&Dad are very proud of all you’ve achieved Sam. All you’re passion drive & commitment is truly paying off. Big thanks to Eccles for recognising how hard Sam has worked thanks to everyone at the club who has supported Sam.
