Hancox happy in role
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.
