Busi­ness boosts pro­mo­tion push

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town cha­ri­man Mark Blower be­lieves his team are more than ca­pa­ble of se­cur­ing pro­mo­tion from the Na­tional League thanks to their trans­fer ac­tiv­ity this month.

The Silk­men have brought in a num­ber of play­ers on loan over the past week, in­clud­ing Rhys Turner, Adam An­soh and Louis Robles.

David Fitz­patrick and Sh­wan Jalal have both signed new con­tracts with the Silk­men too, while Tony Di­agne has ex­tended his loan from Lin­coln City.

Mid­fielder Danny White­head has signed for Wi­gan Ath­letic, but Macc won’t be los­ing him yet as he will re­main with the club for the re­main­der of the sea­son.

With all that in mind, Blower doesn’t see any rea­son why his team can­not book a re­turn to League Two next sea­son.

“We’re re­ally happy with the busi­ness we have done so far this month.

“It was al­ways go­ing to be im­por­tant to try and keep this squad to­gether and we have man­aged to do that,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“David and Sh­wan have done very well on their short-term deals and we were al­ways very keen to ex­tend their con­tracts, while Tony has im­pressed so far dur­ing his loan spell.

“To have all three play­ers for the rest of the sea­son can only be a good thing.

“Ob­vi­ously we were dis­ap­pointed to lose Danny to Wi­gan, but we have man­aged to get a good deal for the club, es­pe­cially with him re­turn­ing on loan.

“He has done very well for us this sea­son, and once again I’d like to thank the sup­port­ers for help­ing make his orig­i­nal sign­ing pos­si­ble back in the sum­mer.

“On the back of that deal we were able to bring in Adam An­son and Louis Robles from Wi­gan who will both give the squad some depth, while we have also signed Rhys Turner from Old­ham who will add com­pe­ti­tion for places up front af­ter Reece Sty­che re­turned to Kid­der­min­ster.

“I’d like to wish Reece well, and also send our best wishes to Cur­tis Haynes-Brown who has also left the club at the end of his con­tract.

“There is a real to­geth­er­ness at the club at the minute and the sup­port­ers are play­ing a huge part in the suc­cess of this team.

“The ‘Crowd­fun­der’ that was launched in the au­tumn has sig­nif­i­cantly con­trib­uted to us be­ing able to keep this squad to­gether and we have some real mo­men­tum at the minute.

“We are in a great po­si­tion go­ing in to the fi­nal few months of the sea­son and I am con­fi­dent that we can make this a year to re­mem­ber for the club. So I urge the fans to please con­tinue to turn out in num­bers and con­tinue their fan­tas­tic sup­port.”
