Macc Town ap­peals for help clear­ing snow ahead of big game

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE - KATE PUTTICK

MACCLESFIELD Town Foot­ball club has put out an SOS for vol­un­teers help to clear the pitch of snow ahead of Satur­day’s match.

While last week’s snow has largely melted else­where, the pitch at Moss Rose was still cov­ered in a thick blan­ket of snow yes­ter­day (Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 3).

Ground staff took to Twit­ter to plea for fans to come and as­sist to make sure the home tie against Welling United goes ahead at 3pm.

The Silk­men are cur­rently third in the league and bat­tling for pro­mo­tion.

A spokesman from the club said: “To be hon­est we would wel­come as many helpers as pos­si­ble, the more the bet­ter!

“The sooner we clear the pitch the bet­ter it will be for the ground and the game.

“Its prob­a­bly too soon to say the game would be can­celled be­cause of it, but con­di­tions like this would cer­tainly not be very good if not dealt with.” If you have a few hours

spare and would like to help, please con­tact the club on 01625 264686 for more in­for­ma­tion.
