Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - SHELDAN KEAY

JACK Mack­reth feels like he is re­turn­ing home af­ter he re-joined Mac­cles­field Town for his sec­ond spell with the club.

The 24-year-old has left Na­tional League ri­vals Tran­mere Rovers and has made the move to the Moss Rose, sign­ing a one year deal.

Mack­reth pre­vi­ously played for Mac­cles­field from 2012 to 2014, be­fore he then de­parted for Grimsby Town.

He’s ex­cited to now be back with the Silk­men, and be­lieves he can achieve good things with the club.

“Ever since I left Mac­cles­field I have al­ways kept an eye on their re­sults to see how they were do­ing with a view to com­ing back,” he said.

“My first phone call af­ter leav­ing Tran­mere was to John Askey and he was keen to get some­thing done, so I am made up I’m back now.

“I played some of the best foot­ball of my ca­reer in my sec­ond year and we had a re­ally good set of lads.”

Mac­cles­field have set tar­gets of clinch­ing pro­mo­tion over the past few years, but have been un­able to achieve their goals.

Mack­reth be­lieves that can change this time around though, and be­lieves the team are good enough to fi­nally go all the way.

“Hope­fully we can have another good year and push for the play-offs. We just want that lit­tle ex­tra push to get in to the play-off spots,” he said.

“This is a foot­ball club that has just fell short in the last cou­ple of years and hope­fully this can be our year.”
