Goal capped dream de­but for Noe

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

NOE Baba says it was a de­but to re­mem­ber af­ter scor­ing the only goal in Mac­cles­field Town’s 1-0 vic­tory over Wrex­ham on Satur­day.

The young­ster net­ted in the first half of the match to help the Silk­men pick up all three points away from home.

Baba cel­e­brated his 21st birth­day on Tues­day, and he was glad it was a mem­o­rable week for him.

“Ty­rone (Marsh) did well on the right side of the pitch and I got the ball and it just hap­pened to bounce up for me, so I thought why not have a go?” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“I just saw it bounce in front of the keeper and then it was in the back of the net, it was one of those joy­ful mo­ments to get a goal on my de­but.

“I thought it was good for us to get a win out here, it was very im­por­tant. The man­ager said to us come out here and try to grab a win.”

Baba also heaped praise on the wiser play­ers in the squad for help­ing to show the younger play­ers the ropes.

“I think the ex­pe­ri­enced boys are re­ally help­ing us, even when the man­ager made a cou­ple of subs which helped us,” he said.

“I think we’re gelling re­ally well as a team and the ex­pe­ri­enced boys are talk­ing to us con­stantly which for me in the mid­dle is re­ally help­ing me a lot and I’m try­ing to learn as much as I can from all of them to re­ally push for­ward for the rest of the sea­son.”

Mac­cles­field were then set to host re­cently rel­e­gated Hartle­pool United as the Ex­press went to print on Tues­day, and Baba felt the vic­tory over Wrex­ham will have put them in good stead for that game.

“Well, I think af­ter get­ting 90 min­utes game time, go­ing into the game the boys will be fresh,” he said.

“The win on Satur­day is just a base go­ing into the game on Tues­day, be­cause when­ever you get a good re­sult it gives you that plat­form to build on and I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to the game on Tues­day now.”

Mean­while, Mac­cles­field have been drawn against 1874 North­wich in the pre­lim­i­nary round of the Cheshire Se­nior Cup.

The game will take place at North­wich’s Bar­ton Sta­dium in the week com­menc­ing Oc­to­ber 30.

Mac­cles­field have had re­cent suc­cess in the com­pe­ti­tion, hav­ing pre­vi­ously won it back in 2015.

Ticket in­for­ma­tion for the match is ex­pected to be an­nounced in the com­ing weeks.
