Jennings out to recapture top form
MACCLESFIELD Town’s returnee loan signing Connor Jennings has insisted that he was never going to say no to the offer of coming back to the club.
Jennings, 25, scored 16 goals for the Silkmen whilst on loan from Scunthorpe during the 2013-14 season.
His first appearance back for Town was in the 1-1 draw with Torquay United last Saturday where he put in a solid performance.
The centre-forward reiterated that his relationship with the manager was important when resigning for the club: “I know a lot of the people here. My brother’s been here before. I’ve known Macclesfield for a good number of years now, I know John (Askey), I know most of the players so it’s nice to be back and so I’m looking forward to working with them.
“I’m really happy to be back. It’s been a few years since I was last here but I’m looking forward to being back.”
Jennings explained that a lack of game time was one of the main reasons why he decided to re-join the National League club: “It’s been limited at Tranmere so the month loan is probably the best for myself and both parties. I wasn’t going to say no to coming back here.”
Manager Askey will be hoping that his form is just as good as it was back in the 2013/14 season and Jennings would love to recover that same form as Macc look to claim a play-off place come the end of the season.
“I was in good form last time I was here and I hope to help in any way I can,” he said.
“The aim is the play-offs and we’ve got a few games in hand as well against teams that are around us so hopefully we can kick on from there.”
