Macclesfield V Grimsby!!
What a day, had fantastic ticket's to my local teams match that found me in the Directors seating area, welcomed personally by one of the Directors, who at half time took us into their exclusive lounge for soup, nibbles and drinks!! On the pitch it was a whole hearted down to earth scrap, against a team five places above us in the league table. We did not deserve to go one down after 37 mins and to add salt to the wound it was scored by Connor Jennings, who is out on loan to Grimsby but at the beginning of the season he was on loan to us!! until injury put him out before Christmas, ( he was not expected to be fit enough to play the rest of the season) and this was only his second game back. We held on well even though our Goalkeeper (not our usual one) made unbelievable errors some that could easily have cost us the match, I can only assume he was still suffering a concussion from being knocked out for half an hour in the game against Northwich in the Cheshire Senior Cup. It went right to the last minute of three minute extra time when we were awarded a well earned penalty and the match ended one all!!! Well done you Silkmen!!!
