McCombe raring to start at Moss Rose
NEW Macclesfield Town defender John McCombe is excited to be back playing first team football after joining the team last week.
The 30-year-old made his debut for the Silkmen as a substitute during the defeat to Torquay, before also featuring in the 0-0 draw with Altrincham on Saturday.
He has made over 300 appearances in his professional career, and he’s now glad to be contributing to the Silkmen.
“It’s been good obviously to get out there, I haven’t played for a while but it was good to get some
‘I’m tall and good in the air so I’d like to think I am a solid centre-half’
minutes under my belt and be on the pitch with the lads and back playing,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to getting in the team and to start playing again because this season has been sort of in and out at York and I haven’t featured for a while.
“I’m quite tall and quite good in the air so I’d like to think I am a solid centre-half and I’ll do my best to help out and hopefully I can do well from now until the end of the season.”
McCombe began his career with Huddersfield Town and made 20 appearances before leaving to join Hereford in 2007.
His performances led to a successful season, meaning he then departed for Port Vale the following year and featured 211 times before a switch to Mansfield.
After a short spell with the Stags, McCombe then joined York and made over 60 appearances, before deciding to leave the club by mutual consent last month.
