For our November social the SSSC went 'on the road' as host club Ellesmere Port RUFC took on Sale Sharks in the 2nd installment of 'Question of Sharks'. Based loosely on a popular BBC sporting quiz and presented by the SSSC's Dee 'Sue Barker' Rowan, it was a fun night of banter, sporting challenges and even a bit of knowledge!
Ross Harrison in the wheelbarrow race with his legs supported by one of the juniors was a sight to behold although Ellesmere Port captain Steve Jefferies came from behind to win the challenge after Ross couldn't work out how to blow up his Pumpaloon (look it up). Will Cliff showed that a slow, measured approach is best when 'poking the hole' and the jury is still out as to whether Tommy Taylor cheated in the egg and spoon race. Josh Beaumont was the font of all sporting knowledge but a special mention for all 4 of our professional rugby players who, after conferring, wrongly answered the question 'how many different ways are there to score points in rugby union?' Just to help you out fellows, the answer is 5... try, penalty, drop-goal, conversion and... PENALTY TRY!!
The quiz was keenly contested with both teams tied going into the final 'on the buzzer' round, but in the end Sale Sharks were able to avenge last year's quiz defeat and win 35-30 and a delighted Sharks captain Will Cliff accepted the winning trophy from an Ellesmere Port junior.
One of the raffle prizes, a pair of worn (still muddy) signed Danny Cipriani boots, caused quite a stir and the winner of the Sale uncovered signed calendar was able to get a special message from Ross, Tommy and Will written on their months!
SSSC Donation to Kieran's trust fund.

In the photo, amongst Crew & Nantwich friends and supporters were (L to R) Tony Buckley and Tom Holmes, Roger Bowen (Chairman - SSSC) presenting a cheque to Jon Cockburn (C&N Chairman) and SSSC committee members Joe Parsonage, Sandra Smith (Treasurer) & Adrian Seddon.
A bucket collection was held at the Worcester Warriors match at the AJ Bell stadium. The collection raised £1463.05 towards the trust fund set up to help Crew & Nantwich centre, 20 year old Kieran Flynn.
Kieran had a catastrophic accident when he broke his neck in a pre-season rugby match. Unfortunately he has recently learned that he will not recover feeling below his waist and will be confined to a wheel chair. His courage in the face of this devastating injury is frankly quite humbling and we, the rugby family, have rallied around this brave young man.
To all those who contributed.... A very big "Thank you" for your genorosity! It means so much to Kieran and his family!
The collection was organised by Sale Sharks Supporters Club in collaboration with Sharks Community Trust. Members of the SSSC committee and Kieran’s team mates and friends from Crew & Nantwich Rugby Club manned the buckets throughout the stadium. The SSSC also presented a cheque to Jon Cockburn, Chairman of Crew & Nantwich RUFC, on the pitch at half time to the value of £250 towards the fund.

Sale Sharks Supporters Club presented the Sharks Academy with a ‘Trauma Kit’ at half time at the Bath game. This additional Trauma Kit is to protect the well being of our Academy U18 players on match-days. At a cost of over £4000 the Supporters Club consider this to be money well spent!
