Three caldy players have signed for anselmians up to now, I'm presuming they're fringe or 2nd team players, can anyone from caldy let us know.
North 1 is going to be a tough league to get out of.

North 1 west was a tough league last term, that's for sure.
It was never going to get any easier though.
It's worth noting that a number clubs are happy with playing at Level 6, feeling that "this is our level".
Northwich, Stockport, Waterloo and Manchester clearly have higher ambitions.

Word on the street is they have some £££'s to splash & have ambition. Can't knock em if it fits their model. Gonna be a belting season in N1W.

Seems to be an ambitious club that's planned to stay in the league.
Pocklington and birkenhead park failed to recruit well while kirby Lonsdale did and stayed up in nat 3 north last season.
New club house and cash to splash they look good to stay up I'd say.at least.

Splashing the cash to do what. When are clubs going to learn? I believe Lou McGowan who Waterloo had     announced had joined them has gone to Anselmians as well

well "splashing the cash" clearly worked for a couple of clubs last term......
However, it didn't work for two of our near neighbours

If they're lucky enough to have any money to "invest" in players, good luck to them

Does this mean they can’t apply for Rfu funding?

They're building a new club house and a side for the league above. Good luck to them.
Wirral might be in the same league next season one way or another. Not sure which one though.

Let’s be honest, nobody has left caldy 2xv for “training facilities”

Good luck to;

Liam Isaacs - scrum half / fly half or full back

Very creative, good eye for space and an elusive runner with great skills

Paul the Seagull Selwood - outside centre / winger

Gas to burn, good step and reads a game very well

Danny Salisbury - ugly front rower

Great club man, consistent and will give his all, good understanding of the game and great skills for an ugly same head (cant comment on front row specific skills)

Louis McGowan - 2nd row

Ridiculously experienced, hard, great leader. Line out expert

Matty Dowler - 6/8

Hard running big lad, great skills and a surprising turn of pace

All great lads, love the club atmosphere, will add a lot on the field but even more off the field if integrated well

Big shame for caldy to lose them, but good luck - i hope they find what they are looking for bit secretly hope that each open will be back at caldy come January

Add onto that caldy losing Luke Harris to Wirral, carl Southan to park, Fraser smale to park and a couple of lads to hoylake - a really tough season ahead for caldy 2xv and a worrying sign for their future

All their ambitious signings didn't help them on Saturday when they lost 38 - 12 at Northwich in the Cheshire Vase in a game in their words that didn't matter. Perhaps the result will be different this Saturday when they play again in the league!

They started all of their new signings, bar Louis McGowan did they not?

have to bear in mind that it is holiday season, so potentially a few key players missing

if it was a full strength team, it doesn't bode well, a loss to Mold and heavy defeat in the cup against league opposition - whom are there or there about's near the top in that league, is not a great way to lead into your season

if i was the coach, i would target the Cheshire Vase, had they won it and finished mid table in their new league, it would have proven a decent season

out of the cup and potential relegation fight doesn't sound as appealing

Anselmians played a strong Northwich team on Saturday and one that would have been promoted to the North Prem if Vale of Lune hadn't sent their 2nd team to Wilmslow having won the league last year .
New players take a while to bed in and the loss of 4 of last seasons best players to injury will make it interesting . What I do know is Northwich will be in the shake up this season, but they do visit Anselmians on Saturday  ... !!

Throwing together a team of mercenaries over the summer then expecting them to beat the fancied league winners in their first full outing would be slightly petulant.
No doubt the saints set up would of been in a state of exultation if they'd triumphed so understating the game after getting beaten is disappointing. Did Kersal do the same after getting pumped by sandbach or admit the standard was too high for them despite their best efforts? At least they didn't back out like stockport, it used to be called taking your medicine.
Last season after a losing streak dating back to Christmas Wirral won the cheshire vase beating sandbach in the final. I'm sure it was the highlight of an otherwise testing season. It looks like it might be sandbach this season but off the back of a strong campaign .
All the sides in the Vase would of been targeting a win.
In a season when Sandbach,Northwich,Birkenhead and possibly Kersal are targeting promotion wirral, wilmslow and saints survival, all the coaches pre match would of been keen for a strong start which poses the question what happened to Stockport?
I can't see anselmians struggling , they'll be better this Saturday for the experience and will improve picking up wins against other sides.
As for devaluing the competition because they got beat, thats another matter.
