Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town for­ward Reece Sty­che has thanked man­ager John Askey for show­ing faith in him af­ter he signed for the club un­til the end of the sea­son.

Sty­che was pre­vi­ously with the Silk­men on loan back in Oc­to­ber, but had his time at Macc lim­ited due to in­juries.

He re­turned to par­ent club Kid­der­min­ster Har­ri­ers un­til he de­parted last week, al­low­ing him to re-join Mac­cles­field on a per­ma­nent deal.

Sty­che was part of the team that lost 2-1 at his for­mer club For­est Green Rovers on Satur­day, and he is keen to hit the ground run­ning from here de­spite that set back.

“We’ve got to kick on now as it’s the other side of Christ­mas and this is where you stamp re­sults,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site. “We need to get some points on the board and push dur­ing th­ese last few months of the sea­son and there is no rea­son why we can’t get in the play-offs.

“I’m back at Mac­cles­field now af­ter my loan as I went back to Kid­der­min­ster and sorted stuff out there by hav­ing my con­tract mu­tu­ally ter­mi­nated.

“I spoke to John Askey and he was happy for me to come back if I was fit and af­ter a full week of train­ing I’m good to go.

“We were on quite a good run dur­ing the pe­riod when I was here so it was tough for me not get­ting to play a part be­cause I was in­jured.

“John saw enough of me though in the first few weeks of my spell to bring me back and I’m grate­ful to him for that.”

Sty­che strug­gled to find a home in his first few years as a pro­fes­sional, be­gin­ning his ca­reer at Hednesford Town be­fore go­ing on to play

‘It was tough not get­ting to play a part be­cause I was in­jured’

for Gran­tham, Coalville, Shep­shed Dynamo and Chase­town.

It was in 2010 when he set­tled down though, sign­ing for For­est Green and go­ing on to make over 100 ap­pear­ances for the club, scor­ing 35 goals.

Those im­pres­sive per­for­mances saw him called up to play for Gi­bral­tar in a match against the Faroe Is­land, be­fore he left For­est Green for Kid­der­min­ster in 2014.
