Han­cox happy in role

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town de­fender Mitch Han­cox has re­vealed he has been relishing the chal­lenge of play­ing in an un­ortho­dox po­si­tion for the side.

While he may be a left-back by trade, Han­cox has been se­lected as a hold­ing mid­fielder in re­cent matches by man­ager John Askey.

The 23-year-old has played there since the mem­o­rable 1-0 FA Cup win at Wal­sall, and has con­tin­ued to im­press since that time.

Han­cox is de­lighted to be help­ing the team out in his new role, and is happy to stay there if need be in the future.

“I’m re­ally en­joy­ing the new po­si­tion. When I came on against Wal­sall I did the job so ob­vi­ously I must have im­pressed the gaffer,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“I’m en­joy­ing it there and it’s only go­ing to ben­e­fit me by play­ing in a dif­fer­ent po­si­tion.

“It makes me feel a bit more ver­sa­tile with the abil­ity to play in other po­si­tions.”

Han­cox be­gan his pro­fes­sional ca­reer at Birm­ing­ham City in 2012, mak­ing over 30 ap­pear­ances for the team over a four-year spell.

He had a loan spell at Craw­ley Town last year, be­fore mak­ing the switch to Mac­cles­field on a per­ma­nent ba­sis back in the sum­mer.
