Wilmslow High Vs Kings School in Cheshire Schools U18 Cup Final

Cheshire School U18’s Cup Final between Kings School Macclesfield and Wilmslow High School will be held on the main pitch at the AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday 19th December prior to the Sale Sharks v Castres match.

The match will kick-off at 11.45am ahead of the Sale Sharks v Castres European match, which kicks off at 2.30pm. Season ticket holders and match tickets to the Sale Sharks v Castres match have access to both fixtures and this will be a great opportunity to see the best schoolboy rugby Cheshire has to offer. Wilmslow & Kings School have triumphed through their earlier rounds to win 75 tickets each to attend the match and will now perform in front of the Sale Sharks fans at the AJ Bell Stadium. Last season Lymm High School were crowned champions,  and current Sale Sharks player Sam James has won the competition with Wilmslow High School in previous years. Playing for Wilmslow High this season is Luke James, brother of Sam and we spoke to the pair of brothers ahead of the match.
