Jennings out to re­cap­ture top form

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - BEN HOB­SON

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.”
