Fan fund boost

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHEL­DAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town man­ager John Askey hopes funds raised by Silk­men sup­port­ers can help bring a cou­ple of new play­ers to the club.

Macc fans have started gath­er­ing money over the last few weeks that will go to­wards the team’s play­ing bud­get.

Askey’s side have a num­ber of in­juries at the mo­ment, but he hopes his squad can ben­e­fit from sup­port­ers’ gen­eros­ity.

“The sup­port­ers have ral­lied around and are try­ing to raise money to in­crease the bud­get,” he said.

“We have around £1,000 at the mo­ment so I can’t thank them enough.

“If we can get it up to £10,000 then that could get us a player or two.

“At the mo­ment we might only be able to name two or three sub­sti­tutes as Neil Byrne was forced off against For­est Green and we don’t know the full ex­tent of that yet.

Theo Bai­ley-Jones got in­jured in the warm up of that game and Paul Turnbull is out too, so we are def­i­nitely short.”

Macc were set to host Bar­row in their latest Na­tional League match at the Moss Rose on Tues­day as the Ex­press went to print.
