Tro­phy progress de­lights Askey

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

LAST Tues­day’s 4-0 vic­tory against Ashton United at the Moss Rose saw Mac­cles­field Town progress to the next stage of the FA Tro­phy where they will face Truro City.

Goals from Kris­tian Den­nis, Paul Lewis and Danny White­head were enough to ease past the Robins and book their place in the sec­ond round of the com­pe­ti­tion.

The Silk­men put on a ter­rific per­for­mance in front of their home fans and man­ager John Askey says it was an im­por­tant re­sult to pick up for many rea­sons.

He said: “It’s im­por­tant that we put a per­for­mance on be­cause we did let our­selves down in the game that was post­poned so I’m pleased to get a clean sheet again and progress into the next round.

“It could be vi­tally im­por­tant to the club fi­nan­cially if we can progress as far as we can as that money could bring two or three play­ers in.”

Askey added: “We passed the ball well and I thought the move­ment was good, that’s some­thing we’ve talked about.

“The play­ers cre­ated quite a few chances so it gives us con­fi­dence.”
