AFC Mac­cles­field have been kit­ted out for suc­cess af­ter The Pack Horse Inn at Bro­ken Cross and Chrome Mo­tors of Beech Lane Mac­cles­field spon­sored new team strips for the Cheshire League team.

Af­ter suc­cess­fully win­ning the East Cheshire League in sea­son 2012/13 and the Al­trin­cham and District League in sea­son 2103/14, the club now plays in the pres­ti­gious Cheshire League along­side larger and well-funded clubs such as Al­trin­cham, War­ring­ton Town and Chea­dle Town.

The FA Char­ter Stan­dard club are cur­rently the high­est ranked am­a­teur foot­ball team in Mac­cles­field and is com­prised en­tirely of play­ers from the Mac­cles­field area and is work­ing hard to bol­ster sport­ing pride to the town.

Mem­ber­ship of the The Cheshire Foot­ball League re­quires a high stan­dard of ground fa­cil­ity but, due to the un­for­tu­nate lack of suit­able fa­cil­i­ties in the Mac­cles­field area, and at the ex­pense, the club are forced to play their home games at Stock­port Sports Vil­lage.

It’s a great fa­cil­ity, but the club are hop­ing to de­velop their own fa­cil­ity in the Mac­cles­field area and bring back Cheshire League foot­ball to the town.

A spokesman said: “For a vol­un­teer and com­mu­nity run club, day to day run­ning of the club and de­vel­op­ing your own fa­cil­ity is no small task and would sim­ply be im­pos­si­ble with­out the gen­er­ous sup­port of spon­sors. In ad­di­tion to The Pack Horse and Chrome Mo­tors, the club have been for­tu­nate to se­cure the ser­vices of Cam­pey Tur­f­care who have kindly of­fered to sup­port the club in de­vel­op­ing a new ground.

“A spe­cial thanks to Neil Steven­son at The Pack Horse and Danny Towns at CHROME MO­TORS for their very gen­er­ous kit spon­sor­ship and sup­port for sea­son 2015/16.

“AFC Mac­cles­field are ask­ing for fur­ther help from lo­cal busi­nesses, whether that be fi­nan­cial spon­sor­ship or sup­port as part­ners.

“Vol­un­teers are the lifeblood of any club and that’s no dif­fer­ent with AFC Mac­cles­field who would be very pleased to hear from any­one in­ter­ested in get­ting in­volved with the club, in any way, how­ever small.

“If you are able to help us in any way and put Mac­cles­field back on the am­a­teur foot­balling map or you just want to find out more about the club and what AFC Mac­cles­field can do to help you or your com­pany, please get in touch!”
