Despite two injury time penalties giving Swindon Town maximum points in our EFL opener yesterday, the afternoon was one which will remain in our hearts forevermore and much of that was down to you - our incredible fans who yet again proved to be our twelfth man.
Mark Yates and the players have been quick to recognise the unbelievable support which was on show at The County Ground yesterday, describing it as “tremendous”.
Even before the two sides entered the pitch, the cacophony of noise which was generated by the 271 visiting supporters was deafening.
Each and everyone of you played your part in showing the nation what Macclesfield Town is all about, as you vociferously got behind the side in a manner which exemplified pride and defiance.
Your support yesterday was phenomenal and we would like to thank everybody who stood with us during our first battle of the season.
We may well have been outnumbered in terms of quantity, but there is no doubt that the emotion, passion and unity which you proudly displayed is something which should be cherished and is certainly not something which we take for granted.
As we have stated previously, when we hear you raucously willing the team on we know that you are not just regurgitating words of your favourite chant. We know that every word is a piece of your heart and that is what makes the support we receive so evocative.
You are as much part of our team as the players on the pitch and we move on to next Saturday’s home fixture with Grimsby stood side by side - ready to give everything we have once more.
