Last Monday the Macclesfield Town FC Youth Development Squad (Manchester group) took part in a double header at the Ten Acres Lane Sports Complex, Manchester. This would be the first occasion that the Manchester based youngsters would compete as a team.
Throughout the first game against Manchester Communications Academy Select, the Silkmen boys looked like a team that have been competing together for a long time. Togetherness, grit and determination added to real quality shown from the lads, with goals from Muzze (2), Horan and James capping off an impressive opening game.
There was still plenty of time for players to impress as the second fixture against International House Football Academy got underway.
Proving a tough opponent IHFA took the lead, but goals from Muuze and Mealing turned it around for the impressive Silkmen youngsters.
