TRAFFORD MV will be at full strength for the visit of Eccles to MacPherson Park on Saturday.

An enforced two-week break due to the cancellation of last weekend's Burnley away fixture due to bad weather means recovery from knocks for a couple of players and rested legs for the rest.

MV captain Andy Quigley will be looking for a confident performance from his players as he looks to repeat the win from earlier in the season when MV came away 39-25 victors.

Trafford are on a four-match winning run and another will put pressure on Tarleton who sit just above them in seventh place in the North Lancs/Cumbria Division.

MV's second XV will travel to Merseyside team Crosby St Mary's at the weekend, while the thirds host Hope Valley RFC at MacPherson Park.

Local rugby lovers are invited to watch MV's game on Saturday, kick off 2.15pm, followed by international Six Nations action on the big screens at the club. 

Meanwhile, as the cold weather abates Trafford MV Cricket Club begin to put their plans in place for the upcoming season. Senior indoor nets are under way, as are the junior sessions on Sundays.

MV will also be running the All Stars Cricket course for five to eight-year-olds during May-July.

Anyone interested in getting involved in any of the cricket at MV should email Wilf Dooley at
