Silkmen Youth Development Squad To Face Burnley On Tuesday Evening

18 January 2019

The first Youth Development Squad fixture of 2019 has now been confirmed - The Silkmen will face Burnley FC Youth Development Squad at the Moss Rose on Tuesday 22nd January with a 7.30pm kick off. 

The match is free entry with the McIlroy Suite doors open at 6pm and we’d like to encourage supporters to come along to see more young players make their Silkmen Youth Development Squad debuts. 

Youth Development Manager Paul McGuire commented: 

“It's great to get back to the Moss Rose after a flurry of YDS away games. The lads from both the Cheshire and Manchester groups have really impressed thus far and this is another great opportunity for a new group of players to appear on the Moss Rose. The squad will look totally different from the Morecambe game, as we rotate the squad in order to have a look at more new potential Academy players". 

Several more YDS games are in the pipeline, with no fewer than seven more matches over the next eight weeks, in order to look at all players in more detail.

Included in this are fixtures in Cheshire and also in Manchester against a host of teams at the proposed Manchester base. We also have a site visit and training day at our Macclesfield Academy base during February half term. 

More updates to follow on this exciting and rapidly developing programme and we hope to see as many fans as possible here on Tuesday night.
