Silk­men fans eye leg­end as Sol’s no. two


MAC­CLES­FIELD Town fans are ex­cited about the ar­rival of Sol Camp­bell and would love to see him paired with club leg­end Danny Whi­taker as as­sis­tant.

Andy Worth, chair­man of the Silk­men Sup­port­ers Trust, says the new boss’ play­ing pedi­gree helps ease con­cerns about his lack of pre­vi­ous man­age­rial ex­pe­ri­ence.

He says Sol - who has 73 Eng­land caps - could be able to at­tract the type of play­ers to help Macc climb League Two in the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow.

And he be­lieves club leg­end Danny Whi­taker, who was in tem­po­rary charge fol­low­ing Mary Yates’ de­par­ture, is the ideal choice to help the for­mer Arse­nal player nav­i­gate the lower leagues.

Andy said: “The fans wel­come Sol, he comes with an im­pec­ca­ble pedi­gree as a foot­baller.

“It is great to see Mac­cles­field Town con­tinue to buck the trend in their will­ing­ness to ap­point man­agers from Black, Asian and Mi­nor­ity Eth­nic (BAME) back­grounds as they did with Paul Ince and Keith Alexan­der.

“Many fans be­lieve that Danny Whi­taker should be given the as­sis­tant role as we started to see re­sults and per­for­mances pick up un­der him and he knows lower league foot­ball,” he added.
