BACK MACC’S BOYS
MACC Town join in the world’s oldest and most famous cup competition this Friday, and they want the town to turn out and enjoy the occasion.
History-making FA Cup runs have played a crucial part in keeping the club afloat in recent years.
The Silkmen have seen off Swindon twice and Cardiff among others, which has led to some unforgettable days at the Moss Rose, when Wigan Atheltic, Everton, Sheffield Wednesday and Bolton Wanderers have played their part in memorable occasions
And as the club is slowly regaining its firm footing chairman Mark Blower is calling for a great turnout as John Askey and his men welcome Wrexham.
“We’re 15 games into the season now and I think we’d all agree John and Efe are doing a fantastic job,” he told the Express. “I’m sure everyone’s pleasantly surprised at how well they’re doing, but I had every confidence John would put together a squad that would compete and the commitment, work rate and togetherness is there for all to see, as is John’s philosophy to the play the game the right way.
“With the more direct football played by many teams in the Conference the team have had to adapt – and they have, brilliantly.
“Friday is a massive game for the club.
“It’s the biggest in terms of financial rewards so far this season and we’d love to see a big turnout to support the team in what’s sure to be a tough match, but one we’ll go into with confidence, particularly as it’s at home.”
