City prove too slick for travel-sick Macc team

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - HOCKEY BEN SMITH

ALTHOUGH their home fix­tures were post­poned due to the weather Macclesfield did see some ac­tion on the road.

But it wasn’t a happy day for the men’s first team, who were beaten 3-0 at City of Manch­ester’s sec­onds.

Although they ap­plied the early pres­sure Macc never re­ally got into their stride and as they lacked width and at­tack­ing ini­tia­tive the hosts were able to soak up the pres­sure.

City of Manch­ester then scored three goals on the coun­ter­at­tack to take the points.

This week­end should also prove a dif­fi­cult day for Macclesfield when Col­wyn Bay visit for what’s al­ways a gritty fix­ture.

Things were even worse for the fourth team, who were thumped 5-0 in a derby at Alder­ley Edge’s sev­enth team.

But there was some suc­cess in the ladies’ ranks, with the first team drawing 1-1 with Sale and the fourths 3-0 win­ners at Whitchurch.

The Badgers and Beavers both beat their Ne­ston South Wir­ral coun­ter­parts 4-1.
