Don’t miss out on Sammy night

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

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.”
