Trafford MV close off their 2018/19 ADM League campaign away at Aldwinians, Audenshaw, this coming Saturday. Both teams will consider they have under achieved this season and both will be aiming to play for their own pride. With nothing to play for, both being safe from relegation fears and both being well off the pace on contending for higher places it will be a case of who picks up the individual honours in this final league match.
Having had no games for 2 weeks both teams should be well rested and have recovered from minor knocks and injuries. MV coach Ricky Phillips will be looking for a performance to justify the efforts he has put in and captain Andy Quigley will be looking to his senior players to give him full backing and put in a strong game after a series of lack-lustre performance in the back half of the season.
There is much room for improvement in MV's game and the club needs to dig deep and improve markedly before they go into their cup final appearance against likely League winners Widnes in May.
The 2nd XV are making a trip to Merseyside to play Crosby St Mary's.
Both games have 3.00pm kick offs

Please remind parents to bring a change of clothes / over clothes and use changing room 6 / changing rooms to access the club and not the glass doors. Don't forget, when it's your kitchen turn you have to stay back and help tidy the club house and you'll be grateful for less mud(!). And we need to lead by example for the visitors; I'll tell them but they just copy what we do.
