THE date has nearly ar­rived and here at Canalside radio we are get­ting ex­cited about our trip to Wem­b­ley on Sun­day, May 21, when Mac­cles­field Town FC take on York City in the fi­nal of the Build­base FA Tro­phy.

It is 47 years since the Silk­men won the first ever fi­nal of the tro­phy and we hope that they can re­peat that win this sea­son.

Rob Heys, the gen­eral man­ager at the foot­ball club, told us ev­ery­body at Mac­cles­field Town is look­ing for­ward to the trip to Wem­b­ley and they hope to add to their two pre­vi­ous tro­phy wins.

Rob said: “It’s some­thing we don’t do ev­ery day, so we’ve had a lot of good ad­vice from peo­ple who’ve been there and done it. Foot­ball’s great for that – ev­ery­body comes to­gether.”

Rob added that ticket sales surged from the start. He said: “We sold a few thou­sand straight away.

“We’ll prob­a­bly sell an­other cou­ple of thou­sand as the day ap­proaches and hope­fully we can take a good crowd of around 6,000 with us.”
