My ca­reer’s in safe hands, says Dan

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

DE­SPITE the dis­ap­point­ment of de­feat at Lin­coln, de­fender Dan Cowan is stay­ing pos­i­tive about the fu­ture, both for him­self and his club.

The youth team prod­uct had a cou­ple of out­ings late last sea­son and made his first start of this term on Satur­day.

It may not have been a vin­tage per­for­mance from the Silk­men, but he’s in no doubt that they’re go­ing the right way.

“That’s only lost two in 12 that we’ve lost, we’re still up there and fight­ing for the play-offs so hope­fully we can get a few more re­sults, this is an im­por­tant part of the sea­son, we can ei­ther lose our heads or we can push on from this point, it’s down to the mind­set of the play­ers, but I’m sure we can come through the next week with some points.”

Cowan (left) first came to Macc as a 14-year-old, pro­gress­ing through the cen­tre of ex­cel­lence and his abil­ity to play any­where across the back four will surely make him an in­valu­able as­set as the sea­son draws on.

And Cowan’s adamant that in John Askey, he’s got the gaffer best equipped to nur­ture him in the early stages of his ca­reer.

“John has helped me a lot through the youths and feed­ing me into the first team, and I’ve felt com­fort­able in the squad, the lads have re­ally helped me too. We’re a tight group, a close set, ev­ery­one’s sup­port­ing each other and it’s a nice place to be at.

“I feel com­fort­able that I’m in good hands with him, I’ve known him since I started at the club when I was 14 so I’ve seen him around the cen­tre of ex­cel­lence. He knows my game and that helps.

“I’m pleased with my progress, I was thrown in there against Lin­coln after we had a cou­ple of in­juries but I was pleased to be start­ing, it was a huge step for me and my ca­reer.

“The gaffer knows that if he needs me I can fill in for him, wher­ever he wants me to play, I’ll play wher­ever I’m needed.”
