Con­test for places down to qual­ity

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town mid­fielder Jack Mack­reth ad­mits it is tough keep­ing a place in the start­ing line-up due to the tal­ent within the squad.

Mack­reth has been fea­tur­ing more and more for the Silk­men over the last few weeks, with man­ager John Askey reg­u­larly stat­ing he has been im­pressed with the 24-year-old.

The mid­fielder now hopes to be one of the first names on the teamsheet, but knows he will have to be at his best each week to get that priv­i­lege.

“Danny Rowe has come back in to the team now and Danny Whi­taker has been do­ing well out wide so there is com­pe­ti­tion for places and hope­fully I can stay in the mix,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“I feel as though I’ve been get­ting into it now. Ob­vi­ously I had a lit­tle in­jury at the end of pre-sea­son but I feel as though I am get­ting a lit­tle bit of form now so hope­fully I can keep it up.”

Mack­reth re­turned to the Silk­men in the sum­mer af­ter pre­vi­ous spells at Tran­mere, Grimsby and Bar­row.

Mean­while, Mac­cles­field goal­keeper Ritchie Brana­gan has left the club and joined Ash­ton United on loan.

The goal­keeper has found first team ac­tion lim­ited at the Moss Rose this sea­son, mak­ing just one ap­pear­ance so far dur­ing this cam­paign to go along­side the 11 games he played for Macc last year.

With that in mind, he has made the de­ci­sion to join Evo-Stik North­ern Pre­mier Di­vi­sion side Ash­ton for the next three months.
