Rowe relishing return to game’s second tier
DANNY Rowe has paid tribute to Macclesfield Town after he left the club to join Championship side Ipswich Town.
The winger has been in good form for the Silkmen so far this season, playing 29 games and scoring seven goals.
Those performances caught the eye of Ipswich, who have signed him for an undisclosed fee on a three-and-a-half year deal.
He is looking forward to his new challenge at Portman Road, but is grateful to everyone at Macc for helping him reach this level.
“Macclesfield have been great for me and I’d like to thank everyone there for helping me progress as a player,” he said.
“It’s been a hectic few days.
“I was told that Ipswich were interested in me earlier in the week and I drove down once I was told it had all been agreed. “It’s an exciting move for me to be joining a massive club like Ipswich and I can’t wait to get going.
“I know I have a lot to prove but I’ll be working as hard as I can to show everyone what I can do.
“I made my debut in the Football League for Stockport against Leeds at Elland Road and it’s a fantastic feeling to be back to that level again.”
Rowe joined Macclesfield back in 2013, and made 28 appearances for them before taking a brief spell away from the game.
He returned to the Moss Rose at the start of 2015, and went on to make a total of 119 appearances.
