Club Information, In Brief
To begin with, Macclesfield Town FC is a football team from the county of Cheshire, England. Indeed, the club came into existence in 1976. Since 1891, their home ground has been the Moss Rose Stadium which has a capacity of over 6,000. Prior to Moss Rose, three other grounds were in use by the club. These grounds were, Macclesfield Grammar School, Rostron’s Field, also Bowfield Lane (now called Victoria Road). Currently, Macclesfield play in a blue and white strip but other colours were in use prior to 1947.
Macclesfield Town have never played in the top leagues of English football but have won a few minor trophies. For example, the club has won the FA Trophy two times and the National League three times ( up to 2018). Due to their lack of historical success and their location, close to Manchester and Liverpool, Macclesfield’s support base is poor. Nonetheless, their fans are just as passionate about their team like any other club. Indeed, they have decent away support and have much praise from other clubs.
The club’s main rivals are Altrincham and Stockport County and derbies are something to look forward too, of course. Because of the old silk mills that were prominent in the town, Macclesfield Town’s nickname is The Silkmen. Indeed, in the past, donations from leftover blue silk gave the club its distinct colours.
