Local Rugby team the Titans have won the Under 17s title in the Raging Bull Colts Junior League D Championship in the first year of their formation!
Sponsored by Glossop based Bakers Solicitors, the Titans is a hybrid team made up of players from Glossop and Marple. Players remain members of their own club but play for the joint side. Coaching staff and respective club committees have fully backed this innovative move in order to maintain a team at competitive level as many teams fold due to lack of players around the age of 16 – when the players have their GCSEs and start to get other commitments.
Local Solicitor and sponsor Ian Baker comments ‘It’s a fantastic achievement for the Titans to win the title during their first year of playing as a team. Its testament to the calibre of playing talent in the area, as well as the support of their coaches and parents’.
