Askey admits recruitment is tough
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.
