Luke in to pro­vide lift

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town mid­fielder Luke Sum­mer­field is hop­ing to help his new team earn pro­mo­tion back to the Foot­ball League.

Sum­mer­field has ar­rived on loan from Grimsby un­til the end of the sea­son, and started in the 1-1 draw with Torquay United on Satur­day.

He is glad to be at the Moss Rose, and is hop­ing it will be a suc­cess­ful few months at the club.

“I’m re­ally happy to be here. I wasn’t play­ing at Grimsby, I was des­per­ate to go out and play games and en­joy play­ing foot­ball again,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“The move came about through the gaffer and I jumped at the chance – I spoke to the chair­man and the man­ager here and I’ve only heard good things about this club.

“I started the sea­son more or less play­ing ev­ery game up un­til just af­ter Christ­mas, but it’s one of those things in foot­ball where you come in and out of the team.

“I’ve come here to help the lads when called upon to get in the play-offs – that was the main rea­son why I came here, to get a good push for pro­mo­tion and also play some games.

“My aim re­ally is to play some games, and also to help the club progress.

“If we can get in the play-offs and even get pro­moted then that’ll be bril­liant for the club and for my­self to be in­volved in some­thing like that will be a mas­sive bonus, and any way pos­si­ble I’d like to do that.”
