Saturday sees us make the trip to Macclesfield for our 6th fixture of pre-season, and we have some silverware on the line!
It’s the inaugural edition of the Reborn Cup, bringing together two historic clubs, each with their own rich heritage and passionate fanbase.
The Reborn Cup marks a significant moment in the revival of both clubs, symbolizing their resurgence after facing challenges in recent years. It represents a celebration of their enduring spirit and determination to reclaim their places in the footballing world.
Looking back to Tuesday it was another good test for Andy Welsh’s side against 1874 Northwich. Sajjad Elhassan opened the scoring, with the first Men’s goal at Gigg Lane since 4th May 2019. Benito Lowe, Sam Unwin and Connor Comber were also on the scoresheet.
In Opposition – Macclesfield
Macclesfield will be looking for another successful season on the pitch, after claiming back-to-back promotions over the last two seasons.
Mark Duffy will be taking charge of the Silkmen for the first time this season, he took the job back in May after former Bury midfielder Neil Danns left the Head Coach position to take up an opportunity at Tranmere Rovers. Duffy was Assistant Head Coach to Danns last season.
Duffy has been busy in the transfer market so far this summer, retaining key players like top scorer James Berry and bringing in goalkeeper Max Johnstone & defender Sam Heathcote to name a couple.
They have played one pre-season fixture so far, it was a 1-0 defeat against The New Saints at the Leasing.com stadium last Saturday.
