Sea­son’s per­for­mance to be proud of

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - SHEL­DAN KEAY

MID­FIELDER Danny Whi­taker in­sists Macclesfield Town can be proud of their ef­forts this sea­son af­ter just miss­ing out on the play-off places.

The Silk­men looked on course for a top-five fin­ish but ended up com­ing sixth af­ter pick­ing up just seven points from their last eight Con­fer­ence matches.

While that may have been the case, Whi­taker be­lieves the play­ers can still be happy with their achieve­ments.

“We stopped short at the fi­nal hur­dle but the lads can walk out of here with their heads held high as we’ve had a fan­tas­tic sea­son and we can take pos­i­tives from it,” he said fol­low­ing Satur­day’s draw at Torquay.

“It was gut­ting just to have come so close and with things un­fold­ing as they have, but that’s foot­ball and we all know that.

“It’s not all come down to to­day, there have been other re­sults that we should have done bet­ter with.”

“A point here or there would have kept us in it but now we’ll just look at giv­ing it an­other go next sea­son.”

Macclesfield had plenty of num­bers at the match against Torquay, with 220 fans mak­ing the trip to Plain­moor.

While they didn’t see their side pick up a victory, Whi­taker praised them for their con­tin­ued sup­port through­out the year.

“The fans have been top, top drawer,” he said. “They prob­a­bly didn’t ex­pect us to be where we are like most peo­ple didn’t, but they have sup­ported us home and away. We’ve tried to do them proud and they’ve def­i­nitely done us proud.”
