Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - JU­NIOR FOOT­BALL

TRE­BLE-CHAS­ING Mac­cles­field Tigers un­der 16s are pre­par­ing for what prom­ises to be their most suc­cess­ful cli­max to a sea­son ever.

On Sun­day they will take on ri­vals Sand­bach United in the MidCheshire District Cup fi­nal at Lo­s­tock Gralam (kick off 2pm).

And the club has lined up a se­cond meet­ing with the tal­ented Sand­bach out­fit – in the League Cup fi­nal – on Sun­day April 24.

Tigers, who cur­rently lie se­cond in the MidCheshire Youth League first divi­sion and have scored 90 goals this sea­son, are also vy­ing for their first ever league ti­tle with four games to play.

The Mac­cles­field team has reached both district and league cup fi­nals in the last two years but fin­ished run­ners-up.

They were also Divi­sion One run­ners-up last sea­son. A core of Tigers’ 15-man squad, drawn from Fal­li­b­roome, All Hal­lows and Tyther­ing­ton schools, has been to­gether since they were seven years old.

Their man­ager, Glyn Evans, is look­ing for­ward to the chal­lenge.

“The Tigers have an ex­cit­ing six games to come which can de­liver an amaz­ing tre­ble,” he said. “The lads have worked for many years for the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a slice of his­tory.

“They’ve shown de­sire, at­ti­tude, be­lief and pas­sion. And, such is their ded­i­ca­tion, they’ve come out to do ex­tra train­ing ses­sions ahead of the fi­nals.”
