Town is turn­ing blue and white to spur on Silk­men

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

THE streets of Mac­cles­field are turn­ing blue and white ahead of the FA Tro­phy fi­nal.

Mac­cles­field Town FC have dec­o­rated the main streets of the town cen­tre with bunt­ing in a bid to get Max­o­ni­ans fired up for the big game at Wem­b­ley on May 21.

The move is part of the club’s ‘We’re Go­ing’ cam­paign which is en­cour­ag­ing fam­i­lies to snap up tick­ets for as lit­tle as £1 for a child.

Tick­ets for adults are £25 and con­ces­sions such as pen­sion­ers and stu­dents get in for £10. There is a 50 per­cent dis­count for groups of nine or more.

Tick­ets also get you in for the FA Vase fi­nal at 12.15pm ahead of Mac­cles­field’s game against York at 4.15pm on Sun­day, May 21.

Busi­nesses across the town have been show­ing their sup­port of the Silk­men by dis­play­ing ban­ners and posters pro­mot­ing the ‘We’re and white bunt­ing around the town, down Ch­ester­gate and Mill Lane. We’ve also got pull-up ban­ners in and around Mac­cles­field, with lots of lo­cal busi­nesses get­ting in­volved in help­ing us to spread the word.”

Mean­while, Roary the Lion, the club’s larger than life mas­cot, has been do­ing his bit to get peo­ple ex­cited.

He was joined by play­ers for a visit to Bolling­ton Cross Pri­mary School where the foot­ball team were pre­sented the tro­phy af­ter win­ning the ‘Lo­cal Small Schools’ tour­na­ment.

The FA has sold 4,979 tick­ets in the Mac­cles­field sec­tion of the ground, and al­most 31,000 across the rest of the sta­dium.

Up to 15,019 seats are avail­able for Mac­cles­field sup­port­ers in the ‘east’ stand, be­hind the goal, as well as part of the lower ‘north’ stand.
