DESPITE relegation from National One, Caldy will be looking forward to this weekend's Caldy Sevens event.

It will feature a number of the stars of the future competing on home soil against some of the top sevens teams from across the country.

The Sevens will feature ten teams competing in both the Shield and Plate competitions as well as a men's and women's mixed touch rugby tournament which will feature a number of the coaches from the club's successful mini and junior sections.

The ladies first team, the Caldy Cougars won the league in their debut season and started the current season off with impressive victories playing on a Wednesday night at clubs across the local area.

The ladies age groups have been going from strength to strength with Scarlett Fielding representing England at U18 level with others turning out for the successful Cheshire Ladies County team over the past two weeks.

The Cheshire men's team has also had a successful fortnight winning their opening two matches at home to Eastern Counties a fortnight ago and away against Yorkshire last weekend both by a single point with the team having a strong Caldy connection.

Last week's victory featured 10 players from Caldy including Derek Salisbury, Jack Collester, and Mike Barlow alongside Wirral RFC's Chris Crowley, Chris Speed and Matthew Dalton.

The team are coached by Caldy Director of Rugby Gareth Davies and Matt Cairns and victory in their final group game could potentially see the county appear at Twickenham for the first time since 2016 when they lost to Cornwall, however that will depend on the result of the of the Roses match between Lancashire and Yorkshire.

However the club's first priority will be for a successful 7s tournament which is always a good day for the whole family gates open at 11am and the action starts at 12 noon.
