Club boss is ‘annoyed’ by stand closure
MACCLESFIELD Town General Manager Robert Stirling admits he was annoyed by the forced decision to close the London Road side of the stadium during the game against Chester.
The non-attendance of a small number of stewards meant there had to be a closure of a significant area of the ground in order to comply with the club’s safety certificate.
Standing spectators were located in the Star Lane end, while Main Stand ticket holders were located in the Moss Lane stand seats.
It left a lot of supporters angry, and Stirling was just as upset as they were.
“It is extremely frustrating and I can understand the fans’ disappointment,” he said.
“Changes to procedures will be made in order to try and make sure this doesn’t happen again. What it does highlight is that we lack regular match day stewards.”
Meanwhile, JD Sports have issued a statement addressing the delayed arrival of the Macclesfield away shirt. The club has not been able to put this season’s away kit on sale yet due to an issue with their manufacture.
JD Sports said: “Due to a number of contributing factors we are experiencing a delay with the new 2015-16 replica away kit.
“We are working closely with the club to keep them updated. The shirts are expected early September and we aim to be in a position to announce an exact date very soon.”
