Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town cre­ated their own tongue-in-cheek match high­lights af­ter be­ing asked to pay for footage of their 0-0 draw with Bore­ham Wood.

The Silk­men usu­ally show their match high­lights on their web­site, but were unim­pressed by de­mands to fork out for a video of Va­narama Na­tional League game.

In­stead they posted a video of 40-se­cond match with fin­gers for play­ers on a card­board pitch, com­plete with crowd noise.

As with the real game, which was watched by 306 peo­ple at Bore­ham’s ground at Meadow Park, very lit­tle hap­pens.

The club posted a video on its YouTube chan­nel which be­gins: “The fol­low­ing is a dra­matic re­con­struc­tion of Bore­ham Wood vs. Mac­cles­field Town.

We were told we would have to pay for use of video footage for high­lights pack­ages, so this re­con­struc­tion will help tell the story of the game.”

The ‘high­lights’ has been watched by 11,000
