2004 did not compete
2003 BSL Division Two Northern Conference 1-8-1
Formed by Lee Morton,
who was playing for the Yorkshire Rams in 2002 and wanted to set up a team in Manchester.
Finished their first season in the BSL with a 1-8-1 record.
After pulling out of the 2004 season for various reasons, and
watching many key players move to other teams, the Titans re-grouped over the summer of
2004 with the view to playing a full schedule of games in the 2005 season. Current
committee members Chris Harwood (Titans GM) Tony McCulloch (Treasurer) and Head Coach
Olando Holman, all of whom have been involved in Britball for many years, were
instrumental in bringing the Titans back from the brink. The team moved home grounds to
Old Bedians Rugby Club in Didsbury and entered the BAFL's Central Division of Division 2.
In what was realistically a first season for the team, the Titans finished with a
solid 5-5 record and were second to the eventual Division 2 Champion Coventry Jets in the
Central Division. Earning a Quarter Final trip to play the West Coast Trojans.
With a squad comprised mostly of rookies, the Titans proved no match for the
Trojans and were defeated 56-0. The 2006 season looks promising as a player recruitment
drive has had considerable success and interest in the team has risen after appearances in
the city centre and a recent exhibition game against the USA All-Stars
