CLEGG: “IT’S WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF”

11 Mar 2024 | Latest News

Macclesfield FC manager Michael Clegg was delighted with Saturday’s result as The Silkmen booked their spot in the Semi-Finals with a victory over Coalville Town. 

Goals from John Rooney, Kane Drummond, and an Eliot Putman own-goal booked the Silkmen’s place in the Semi-Finals of the Isuzu FA Trophy.

Clegg was delighted with the outcome. He said: “It’s what dreams are made of. You don’t need extra motivation on a day like today (Saturday).”

He went on to say:

“The previous managers who have got us to this point, it’s easy for me to step in now in such a big game, they’ve done so well to get us here. For everyone connected with the club, it’s a great day.”

There was an attendance of over 2500 inside the Leasing.com Stadium on Saturday which drove Michael Clegg’s side into the final four of the trophy.

Clegg paid tribute to the support and hopes that fans will back his side on the road for the remainder of the season.

He said: “We would love them to travel in numbers, we need them.

“It’s so good to see them behind the goal, they’re absolutely up and down, all the families and spending time with them after the game.

Preparations now shift back to league action away at Worksop Town next Saturday with The Silkmen looking to string a run together in the league.
