Captain dreams of trip to
MACCLESFIELD Town captain Paul Turnbull will have hoped his side managed to come out on top in last night’s re-arranged FA Trophy match with Ashton United as he is desperate for a trip to Wembley.
Saturday’s clash was abandoned with Macc trailing 2-0, with the sides scheduled to meet again at the Moss Rose as the Express went to print on Tuesday evening.
A second round game with either Truro City or Cirencester Town awaited the Silkmen if they were able to overcome Ashton, and Turnbull was hoping to go all the way in the competition.
“A cup run is a big incentive for the lads because it’s an opportunity to play at Wembley,” he told the club’s official website.
“I don’t think there’s that many games that you’ve got to win in The FA Trophy and you get the chance to play at Wembley.
“The cup is a good chance for a break from the National League. I think every game is different but we’re always wanting to win and I think we’ve been a bit unlucky the past two league games.”
Ashton managed to play their opponents off the park during the first half of Saturday’s original tie, and Turnbull predicted ahead of that match that it was going to be a difficult encounter.
