Boot just the right fit for Silk­men

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town have added to their squad af­ter they signed Port Vale goal­keeper Ryan Boot on a short-term loan deal.

The 22-year-old has made the switch to the Moss Rose af­ter Ritchie Brana­gan left Macc to join Ash­ton United on loan.

Boot has been part of match-day squads at Port Vale in the past, though he is yet to make his de­but for the League One club.

He has also had two pre­vi­ous suc­cess­ful loan spells with Na­tional League North side Worces­ter City.

He made 10 ap­pear­ances for Worces­ter team ear­lier this sea­son, help­ing the team pick­ing up five vic­to­ries and keep­ing six clean sheets dur­ing that time.

Boot is set to be in the Mac­cles­field squads over the com­ing weeks, but is in­el­i­gi­ble for the FA Cup se­cond round clash with Ox­ford United af­ter al­ready play­ing for Worces­ter in the com­pe­ti­tion this sea­son.

Mean­while, Mac­cles­field have for­feited their place in the Cheshire County FA Se­nior Cup first round af­ter ad­mit­ting to field an in­el­i­gi­ble player dur­ing their pre­lim­i­nary round tie ear­lier this month.

The Silk­men won the match 4-3 against Wins­ford United, but as a re­sult of the for­feit, it is Wins­ford who will now progress to the first round.
