Askey ad­mits re­cruit­ment is tough

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town man­ager John Askey ad­mits that it is ex­tremely dif­fi­cult for his side to find play­ers to sign.

The Silk­men boss has made it no secret that he is con­stantly look­ing at new ways to im­prove the squad.

He is been lim­ited to bring­ing in young­sters on loan, but ad­mits that is far from the ideal sce­nario that he would like.

“There are a lot of games so we are try­ing to bring more play­ers in but it is no use bring­ing any­body in,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“It’s dif­fi­cult be­cause of the wage struc­ture and ide­ally we would want to buy some­body be­cause that’s the only way we can get some­body re­ally good enough to im­prove us.

“We’re not in a po­si­tion to do that though so we’re just look­ing at young lads

‘We’ll keep look­ing and hope­fully some­body will turn up to give us a boost’

re­ally. We’ll keep look­ing though and hope­fully some­body will turn up that gives us a boost be­tween now and the end of the sea­son.”

Mac­cles­field have a busy pe­riod over the next few weeks, and are cur­rently set to play ev­ery Satur­day and Tues­day be­tween now and April 8 af­ter their planned league game last week was post­poned.

It means they are due to have nine league games in just over four weeks, and Askey knows it will be an im­por­tant pe­riod.

“Ev­ery game is re­ally im­por­tant but it’s a bit frus­trat­ing be­cause they are re­ally pil­ing up,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“We were meant to play last Tues­day but it got post­poned, but luck­ily all the results went for us.”

The planned league game for Macc was a home game against Gateshead, which had to be re-ar­ranged due to the Silk­men need­ing a re­play for their FA Tro­phy clash with Dul­wich Ham­lett. The Gateshead game now takes place next Tues­day.
