Moss Rose fans come up trumps

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MACCLESFIELD Town gen­eral manager Robert Stir­ling has praised Silk­men sup­port­ers af­ter more than 500 snapped up their sea­son tick­ets for the 2015/16 sea­son.

Last week­end saw the end of an early-bird dis­count phase and there has been a con­sid­er­able in­crease in sales.

Gen­eral manager Robert Stir­ling said that the re­sponse from fans has been very en­cour­ag­ing for the club.

“To have al­most a 30 per cent rise in sea­son tick­ets on the year on year sales is a re­ally pos­i­tive sign for the club,” he told mtfc.

“I think it shows that the peo­ple of Macclesfield are buy­ing in to what the club is try­ing to achieve at the minute.

“We ob­vi­ously had a re­ally good year on the field last sea­son and that was cou­pled with a fan­tas­tic home record that saw us lose just two games.

“The sup­port­ers played a big part in that home record and it looks like they will once again turn out in num­bers to sup­port us next sea­son.”

With more than two months left be­fore the start of the sea­son, Stir­ling is hope­ful that the sales will con­tinue to rise be­fore the new cam­paign kick­soff on Au­gust 8th.

“There is, of course, still plenty of time for more peo­ple to throw their sup­port be­hind the club and we would ex­pect to see that hap­pen. We want to see peo­ple of all ages down at the Moss Rose next sea­son.”

Sea­son tick­ets re­main on sale from the club and on­line at­fcdi­rect. Sup­port­ers can also pur­chase sea­son tick­ets from the Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre at the Town Hall, en­abling fans to get their ticket in the town cen­tre.

The club will also be show­ing off their new kits for the forth­com­ing sea­son at a spe­cial launch evening to­mor­row (Thurs­day) night.

“The new kits from Cabrini are sure to be a big hit with sup­port­ers, so we are urg­ing fans to come along to this free evening and make sure they see the new shirt first!”

Also on the evening, there will be a quiz night which will be £10 per team (max­i­mum four peo­ple). This will be a mix­ture of gen­eral knowl­edge and Macclesfield Town trivia.

Peo­ple can book their team in ad­vance by tele­phon­ing 01625 264686 or email­ing re­cep­tion@mtfc. Al­ter­na­tively, teams can turn up on the night.

Macclesfield have also con­firmed that they will host neigh­bours Stock­port County in a pre-sea­son game on Fri­day July 24th.

The game is the third home pre-sea­son game for the Silk­men, with League One sides Rochdale (July 18th) and Bury (July 21st) also set to visit the Moss Rose in a chal­leng­ing build-up to the new cam­paign for John Askey and his side.

The Silk­men will also face matches at Kidsgrove Ath­letic on July 11, along with a trip to Nantwich Town on July 14.

Macclesfield scored three tries through Zak Bow­den, Lewis Hal­l­i­day and To­masz McNulty while a con­ver­sion and two penal­ties from the re­li­able boot of Will Davies saw them home.
