Watson wants Jennings return
STEVE Watson is hopeful that National League rivals Tranmere Rovers may allow striker Connor Jennings to return to Macclesfield Town on loan in the near future.
Jennings has been impressive during his brief period playing for the Silkmen, but his loan has now ended and he has returned to Tranmere.
Watson was sad to see him go, and has his fingers crossed that the forward may be back at the Moss Rose soon.
“I was disappointed for Connor that he went after the Forest Green game as he wouldn’t want to sign off with a game like that on Saturday,” Watson told the club’s official website.
“Somewhere down the line hopefully Tranmere might have a change of heart and loan him back to us.
“Tranmere’s squad has a lot of bodies and I think they have four fit strikers even without Connor, so maybe we can convince them to give us him back as he is a player that can help us beat the teams in and around them.”
While Watson was sad to see Jennings go, he believes it now gives fellow loan signing James Thorne the chance to make a name for himself at the Silkmen.
“Now that we don’t have Connor, there will be more chances for James Thorne now,” said Watson.
“He was bright when he came on against Forest Green, but it was just a shame that he couldn’t get a lot of the ball as we didn’t keep it very well.”
