Don’t miss out on Sammy night
IT’S not too late to grab yourself a ticket for ‘An Evening With Sammy McIlroy’.
On November 6, the Silkmen’s legendary manager (right) will be appearing, in the suite that was renamed in his honour, for a trip down memory lane.
The former Manchester United and Northern Ireland star is best remem- bered in these parts as the man who led Macc to the Conference title in 1997, bringing Football League action to the club for the first time.
While that was a momentous achievement, a second successive promotion saw the Silkmen, with John Askey and Efe Sodje in the playing ranks, reach the third tier, and in the 1998/99 campaign they rubbed shoulders with the likes of Manchester City, Wigan and Stoke.
McIlroy, who also won the FA Trophy with Macc, left the Moss Rose to take the job as Northern Irleand manager and is still fondly remembered at the club – even a later stint in charge at Stockport County couldn’t change that.
And he’s promising to answer any questions put to him – which should be submitted in advance – frankly and honestly.
“It should be a nice evening,” he said. “It’s always good to see the fans who supported us at that time and see what they’ve got to say. It should be entertaining anyway.”
