The club is always thankful of the contributions and support they make and setting a day aside to show our appreciation is the least we can do. Alongside our volunteers, our sponsors are very literally what keeps the club open and operational from one year to the next.
We hope as many club members as possible will join us on Saturday when the 1XV face our visitors Garstang in the final game of the season. We hope there’ll be sunshine and something to celebrate. A victory for the 1XV will see them win promotion.
The 2XV are at De La Salle and on Sunday the Senior Colts are at Widnes in the Lancashire U18 Trophy Final (Colts Team bus departs Eccles 1130am, Supporters bus departs 1300) Good luck to everyone pulling on the Navy n’ White hoops this weekend.

- REPORT: A 7-24 win away at Marple last weekend moved Eccles above Orrell into 2nd place. The last time Garstang and Eccles met was 1st September for the opening game of 2018/19 league season . Eccles were a new group rebuilding then and came away with 5 points in the end, but were made to work very hard for the 30-34 result.
