Rowe sets top tar­get

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town winger Danny Rowe in­sists that a top-five fin­ish is his tar­get next sea­son af­ter he signed a new deal with the club.

The 24-year-old was one of the Silk­men’s best play­ers dur­ing the last cam­paign, with his im­pres­sive per­for­mances earn­ing him a new con­tract with the club.

He is one of sev­eral cur­rent play­ers to com­mit their fu­ture to the Moss Rose for an­other year, with the club also look­ing to add some new re­cruits.

Rowe hopes that with a lot of the ex­ist­ing team re­main­ing in place, Mac­cles­field have what it takes to chal­lenge for pro­mo­tion back into the Foot­ball League.

“There is a real bond in the dressing room and we want to achieve some­thing to­gether for the fans,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“We be­lieve we can reach the top five of this league and that will be the aim for next sea­son. We just want to take the form that we showed to­wards the end of last sea­son into pre-sea­son and the open­ing games and make sure we make a good start.

We showed last sea­son that we are a match for the bet­ter teams in the di­vi­sion and with so many of the squad stay­ing I think we can have an­other good year.”

Rowe re­vealed that he had of­fers from higher clubs, but wanted to stay at Macc and con­tinue to learn from cur­rent man­ager John Askey.

“I was de­lighted to sign a new deal with Mac­cles­field Town. I’ve been here for a num­ber of years now and I am re­ally en­joy­ing my time here,” he said.

“I’m happy at Mac­cles­field and while I had op­tions to play higher, I felt for my devel­op­ment I needed an­other sea­son at Mac­cles­field un­der the gaffer.

“There is a great at­mos­phere at the foot­ball club and we just want to have an­other suc­cess­ful sea­son where we can con­tinue to im­prove. If we can do that then I am sure we will be there or there­abouts again.”

Mac­cles­field fin­ished in 10th place dur­ing the lat­est Na­tional League cam­paign, hav­ing won 19 of their 46 matches.
