Cap­tain dreams of trip to

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

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.
