The Cheshire Minis Festivals for the 2018/19 Season will be Sunday 7th April 2019.

The RFU Structured Season and the desire to avoid clashes between Club and School fixtures means that the dates for U12s-U16s will now be ‘play on’ dates rather than ‘play by’ dates. There is also a desire to avoid dates allocated for Club fixtures too close to Christmas and New Year because of the weather.
