New arrival keen to extend stay
NEW Macclesfield Town signing Richard Brodie has revealed he is already hoping to extend his time at the club.
Brodie joined the Silkmen on loan from fellow National League side York City last week on a deal that runs until January.
While he may only be set to be at Macc for a couple of months at the moment, the 29-yearold striker hopes to stay longer at the Moss Rose.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back on the pitch because I haven’t played for York over the past couple of weeks,” he said.
“The deal is until January 1 but I’m hopefully looking beyond that. I can’t look too far ahead though so at the moment I’m just taking one game at a time.
I’m delighted its done as it was something that I knew was in the background but then it happened all so quickly.
“It’s a really good feeling to be a part of a club that are going in the right direction; up the table.”
Brodie has scored 69 goals in 165 games during his two spells at York, but he has found first team opportunities limited this season.
He previously won National League titles with Crawley Town and Fleetwood Town, and also played for Southport during the 2014/15 season, scoring 16 goals in the process.
He was named Conference Player of the Year in 2010 while he was in his first spell at York, with his 34 goals helping the team reach the play-off final.
