Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

ANDY Halls is glad to be putting the saga sur­round­ing his fu­ture be­hind him af­ter fi­nally sign­ing a new deal at Mac­cles­field Town.

The de­fender has signed a new one-year con­tract with the club to stay at the Moss Rose for the forth­com­ing cam­paign.

Halls has been with Mac­cles­field for the past three sea­sons, and he was happy to be stay­ing put.

“I am de­lighted to fi­nally get the deal fin­ished but it has taken a lit­tle bit longer than I had ex­pected to get it done,” he said.

“I am re­ally happy to have it over the line now though and I am just look­ing for­ward to another pos­i­tive sea­son and hope­fully pro­mo­tion.”

Halls is con­fi­dent about his team’s chances this sea­son, and hopes that the team can strengthen their squad this sum­mer.

“The man­ager has men­tioned the play­ers that we have signed early on and that we want to build on last sea­son,” he said.

“We signed Jack Mack­reth ear­lier this week and that should get ev­ery­body ex­cited be­cause that it an ex­cit­ing sign­ing.

“I said at the end of last sea­son we had the strong- est team that we had all sea­son.

“We were bril­liant all over the pitch in the fi­nal 10 games and now we want to take that form in to the new sea­son.”

One player that has left Mac­cles­field though is their cap­tain Paul Turn­bull, af­ter he signed for Na­tional League ri­vals Bar­row.

It is a big blow for the Silk­men, with Turn­bull re­ject­ing a new deal at the Moss Rose in order to join Bar­row on a free trans­fer.

The 27-year-old joined Macc back in 2013, mak­ing over 100 ap­pear­ances for the club dur­ing his time at the Moss Rose.
