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.

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.
