Askey’s Wem­b­ley wish for Silk­men

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MAN­AGER John Askey was dream­ing of a match at Wem­b­ley ahead of their FA Tro­phy re­play with Truro City.

The Silk­men were set to host Truro at the Moss Rose as the Ex­press went to print on Tues­day, with a match against Torquay in the last 16 of the com­pe­ti­tion up for grabs for the win­ner.

Satur­day’s tie be­tween the two teams fin­ished 2-2, with Isaac Vas­sell scor­ing an 88th minute equaliser for Truro to earn them the re­play.

Ol­lie Knowles had ini­tially put them ahead, be­fore Macc tem­po­rar­ily turned things around thanks to goals from Kris­tian Den­nis and Rhys Turner.

A re­turn match was needed though to de­ter­mine who would progress, and Askey was plan­ning on go­ing all the way in the com­pe­ti­tion.

“Ev­ery­body dreams of run­ning out at Wem­b­ley and at this level the FA Tro­phy is the big­gest cup com­pe­ti­tion,” he said.

“The closer you get to the fi­nal the more in­ter­ested you get, and we’ll be try­ing our best to keep pro­gress­ing and win it.”

Mean­while, Mac­cles­field’s Cheshire Se­nior Cup tie against Cam­mell Laird has been re-ar­ranged, with the two teams now set to meet on Tues­day 26 Jan­uary af­ter the orig­i­nal date was post­poned.
