Macc snap up a winter bargain
JOHN Askey has added to his ranks with the recapture of Danny Rowe.
The Macclesfield boss brought the winger in from Conference North side AFC Fylde on New Year’s Day.
Rowe, 25, who began his career at Stockport County, was released by Macc last summer, and in around 30 outings for the Silkmen, scored four goals, three of which came in an FA Cup qualifying round thrashing of Vauxhall Motors.
Rowe went straight into the squad for the New Year’s Day win at Grimsby, after which Askey was full of praise.
“He was terrific when he came on, he got more crosses in when he came on than we had done for a while.
“He’s not played for a year, so he’s not 100 per cent fit but it was perfect timing for him to come on. He did really well.”
