Silkmen retain one of non League football's brightest prospects.

Macclesfield Town manager John Askey has pulled off a coup in retaining the services of attacker Jack Mackreth for the coming season despite interest from other clubs.

The winger, who arrived last summer from Barrow has been widely regarded as one of the rising stars of non-League football after his impressive first season with the Holker Street side. He cemented his potential further with the Silkmen last season where his pace and trickery caused problems for Conference, Championship and Premier League defences alike. Particular highlights being his two goal salvo at Ebbsfleet, the cut-back and cross for the vital equaliser against Cardiff, and being a thorn in the side of Wigan all afternoon in the FA Cup Fourth Round.

He made 40 appearances for the Silkmen last season, scoring three goals, with the other coming at Southport, and became a firm fans favourite.

Manager John Askey told us: “He’s a player with a lot of ability and showed some real moments of brilliance last season. He’s a good age and has a great attitude, so we’re really happy to have got him signed up. The lad enjoys playing at the club, and has turned down more money elsewhere to stay with the club because he is buying in to what we are doing here.”
