Silk­men’s silky style of play con­vinced Dur­rell

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

EL­LIOTT Dur­rell has re­vealed Mac­cles­field’s at­trac­tive style of play was one of the big­gest rea­sons why he de­cided to join the club.

Dur­rell’s joined The Silk­men was con­firmed on Fri­day af­ter he left Na­tional League ri­vals, Ch­ester.

He was an ever present in The Blues lineup last sea­son with 46 ap­pear­ances, scor­ing eight goals in the process.

The new sign­ing went on to praise the set-up at Mac­cles­field Town on ar­rival and said that, in his own ex­pe­ri­ence, there were no bet­ter foot­balling sides in the league.

“I’ve played against Mac­cles­field a few times al­ready in my ca­reer and they re­ally do play foot­ball the right way,” said Dur­rell.

“That will suit me down to the ground. Every­thing about the place is pro­fes­sional.

“I re­mem­ber play­ing here last year and ob­vi­ously the re­turn leg at Ch­ester – and I don’t re­mem­ber any­body else, foot­balling wise, that was a bet­ter team.

“It should be played on the ground.

“Ob­vi­ously, there’s a time and place to go long, of course, but the man­ager is en­cour­ag­ing as lit­tle long stuff as pos­si­ble in train­ing.”

Dur­rell will join up with fel­low new sign­ing and for­mer Ch­ester team­mate Ryan Lloyd this sea­son and he be­lieves that Lloyd’s sign­ing high­lights the style that man­ager John Askey is try­ing to en­cour­age ahead of the new sea­son.

“I ob­vi­ously know Lloydy from my time at Ch­ester and sign­ing him, and the other new sign­ings, says a lot about the ap­proach they’re try­ing to take here.

“Hope­fully we can gel the team nice and quick and we can hit the ground run­ning.”
