Striker Sty­che signs for Silk­men

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town have bol­stered their for­ward op­tions af­ter sign­ing striker Reece Sty­che un­til the New Year.

The 26-year-old joins the Silk­men on loan from fel­low Na­tional League side Kid­der­min­ster Har­ri­ers.

He made his de­but for his new team on Satur­day, com­ing on as a sec­ond half sub­sti­tute dur­ing the 1-0 de­feat to Brain­tree.

It pro­vides man­ager John Askey with more com­pe­ti­tion up front, and the Mac­cles­field boss is de­lighted to have Sty­che on board.

“We needed an­other striker as we only had Kris­tian who was fit, so Reece knows what it is all about,” he said.

“He has reg­u­larly played at this level and hope­fully he can of­fer some­thing dif­fer­ent to the team.”

Sty­che has plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence com­pet­ing in the divi­sion, hav­ing made over 100 ap­pear­ances dur­ing a four year stint with For­est Green Rovers from 2010 to 2014.

The for­ward has also played in League Two hav­ing spent time on loan with Wy­combe Wan­der­ers last year, but he failed to score a goal dur­ing his spell with the club.

He re­cently rep­re­sented Gi­bral­tar at in­ter­na­tional level, mak­ing his de­but in a 4-1 de­feat to the Faroe Is­lands, and also played a match for the England C team in 2011.
