Loan star hails grit of young Silk­men

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

NEW Mac­cles­field Town sign­ing Adam Yates was de­lighted to mark his de­but with a win af­ter the 1-0 win at Wrex­ham.

Yates played a key part in help­ing the Silk­men come out on top, and the new loan re­cruit was glad to con­trib­ute.

“I have to say I’m pleased with the way things have gone, not just for my­self but for a lot of the young lads,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“We want to get as many points on the board as pos­si­ble. I was a sur­prised by how much foot­ball was played, but we played in the right ar­eas and that was the key to win­ning.

“There were some young play­ers on that pitch for Mac­cles­field and ev­ery sin­gle player put a shift in. It was a thor­oughly de­served three points.

“Three out of the back four have played a lot of league foot­ball, but I feel like we’re all good com­mu­ni­ca­tors and that bodes well. We tried not to drop deep, dealt with a lot of balls com­ing into the box, and we lim­ited them to only two or three chances.

“It’s great to come to a club like Wrex­ham – with an in­tim­i­dat­ing at­mos­phere for some play­ers – and still grind out the re­sult like we did.

“I’ve been pro­moted from this league be­fore but I have to say the grit th­ese lads showed in front of a big crowd is ad­mirable.”
