Gasp agony

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

James saw an­other chance go beg­ging as he couldn’t find the same con­nec­tion as with his ear­lier vol­ley and his scuffed ef­fort fell wide of the mark, be­fore Mac­cles­field’s tro­phy hopes were stolen away from them in the cru­ellest pos­si­ble fash­ion.

Parkin, who had been a hand­ful for the Silk­man through­out the 90 min­utes, turned a cou­ple of de­fend­ers and saw his shot de­flect over Flin­ders, leav­ing Con­nolly with the sim­ple task of help­ing the ball over the line from a yard out.

Luke Sum­mer­field and An­thony Dud­ley came on to try to take the game to ex­tra time but York con­trolled pos­ses­sion and saw out the game pro­fes­sion­ally.
