Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHEL­DAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town midfielder Danny White­head be­lieves the team is ca­pa­ble of be­com­ing league cham­pi­ons this sea­son.

The Silk­men nar­rowly missed out on the play-offs last sea­son, fin­ish­ing one point and one place out­side the top five.

While most of the play­ers have set their sights on go­ing one bet­ter this time around, White­head is con­fi­dent the team can ex­ceed those ex­pec­ta­tions and gain au­to­matic pro­mo­tion.

“It’s go­ing to be a good sea­son, just look­ing at how un­lucky they were last year, this year we will try and get into the play-offs, if not bet­ter,” he said.

“To come in af­ter join­ing, play a few games and have some­thing work out is good, and now ob­vi­ously I’m look­ing for­ward to the sea­son.”

White­head joined Mac­cles­field ear­lier this sum­mer af­ter be­gin­ning his ca­reer with Stock­port County.

His im­pres­sive form there saw him signed by Premier League side West Ham United, but things didn’t work out and he soon left the club.

Af­ter a short time with Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley, White­head will now ply his trade at the Moss Rose.

“The fans are re­ally good, and ob­vi­ously when the fans like you then that’s the best thing,” he said.
