Lewis cites Askey as key to ex­tended stay

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town mid­fielder Paul Lewis has re­vealed that man­ager John Askey was the main rea­son why he de­cided to stay at the foot­ball club.

Lewis has been with the Silk­men since 2010, and has gone on to be one of the key play­ers in the side over the past cou­ple of years. His emer­gence in the first team has come un­der cur­rent boss Askey.

“The man­ager had a lot of in­flu­ence in con­vinc­ing me to stay.

“I was in the youth team when he ar­rived and al­lowed me to play in the first team, and he gives me con­fi­dence when I play,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“Life at the club has been very good.

“I’ve al­ways been treated well since I’ve been here, and it’s a good club to be at, es­pe­cially when you’re a young player be­cause the man­ager will give you more of a chance. I’ve en­joyed my time here, I’ve been here a while now so it’s great. I’m happy to have signed a new deal and I’m glad to be play­ing for this club. I’m play­ing some­where where I’m happy and I’ve been here for six years now.

“I get on well with the man­ager and I en­joy play­ing for him, so now I’m look­ing for­ward to the start of the new sea­son.”
