Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

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.
