New ar­rival keen to ex­tend stay

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

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.
