Did you know?

-Former Manchester United midfielder Sammy McIlroy took charge of Macclesfield at the start of the 1993/94 season and guided them to the Football Conference title in just his second season. Unfortunately for them, the club were denied entry into the Football League because Moss Rose didnt meet the league requirements of having a capacity of 6,000 with at least 1,000 of those being seated.

-The club reached the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time in their history in the 2012/13 season. They entertained eventual winners Wigan Athletic at Moss Rose but lost to a solitary Jordi Gomez penalty to end a run that had seen impressive wins against Cardiff and Swindon.

-Macclesfield spent 15 years as a Football League club after winning promotion from the Vauxhall Conference as champions in the 1996/97 season, which also saw the club turn professional. The Silkmen made it back-to-back promotions after finishing runners-up in the Nationwide League Division Three and remained unbeaten at home throughout that campaign- the only Football League club to do so that year. They were relegated from the Second Division a year later and stayed in League Two until their most recent relegation back to non-league in 2012.

-Town have Solihull-born Mitch Hancox amongst their ranks and he will be a player to look out for when Moors travel to Moss Rose. The former Birmingham City man isnt known for his goal scoring ability but hes netted four times in his last five appearances including a hat-trick in the 4-2 defeat of Boreham Wood.

-John Askeys side are looking forward to a trip to Wembley next month as they take on York City in the FA Trophy Final. The club have won the competition twice before with their most recent triumph coming in 1996 when they beat Northwich Victoria 3-1.
