Mack de­lighted to be back in the Macc fold

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

JACK Mack­reth in­sists it feels like he has never left the club af­ter re­turn­ing to Mac­cles­field Town on loan for the rest of the sea­son.

The 24-year-old left the club back in Jan­uary to sign for League One side Bury, but will now spend the next cou­ple of months back at the Moss Rose.

He played in the 1-1 draw against Gateshead last Tues­day, and Mack­reth said he was happy to make his re­turn.

“I’m glad to be back. I know the lads, the man­ager, the fans, so I’m look­ing for­ward to it.

“It’s good to be back and it doesn’t feel like I’ve been away to be hon­est,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“I came back to train­ing and every­one was made up, I was happy to be back and it’s just nice to get re­wards for train­ing ev­ery day.

“I know the lads, the man­ager and the fans, so I’m look­ing for­ward to it and I’m glad to be back.

“It was a tough game against Gateshead, they were set up well de­fen­sively.

“I haven’t played in a few weeks so it was good to get some match fit­ness but we’re dis­ap­pointed we didn’t get the three points.

“In the first-half we were cre­at­ing a few chances and we should’ve cap­i­talised on it.

“We’ll take a point but we’d have liked to have taken three to help chase the pack above us.

“John’s got the im­por­tant goal and they were dom­i­nat­ing at that mo­ment in time and I think if it car­ried on like that we might not have got any­thing from the game.”

Mack­reth made 115 ap­pear­ances dur­ing his pre­vi­ous two spells at Mac­cles­field, but found op­por­tu­ni­ties lim­ited at new club Bury, play­ing just three times since mak­ing the switch to the JD Sta­dium ear­lier this year.
