Silkmen Fans Focus: Sarah Carbutt

26 June 2019

We continue our fans focus by featuring a well-known and incredibly passionate fan in Sarah Carbutt -

I started supporting Macc after joining the club's girls team when I was six years old.

Although I can't remember exactly when my first game was, it was definitely during the 2001/02 season when David Moss was Manager.

At the time, the club were sponsored by James Irlam and it just so happened that my Dad used to drive the bespoke truck which was made to commemorate the partnership.

I remember arriving to games in that truck and it was certainly an exciting and novel way to make my first appearances at the place that I would soon call home.

Since then, there have been so many brilliant memories of watching The Silkmen. It is hard to think of any which eclipse our National League title-winning campaign though as it was something which I never really expected and that historic day down at Eastleigh will live with me for the rest of my life.

Apart from that, the 2006/07 season also comes to mind when Paul Ince saved us from relegation. The whole world thought that we were dead and buried, so that made our dramatic escape all the more sweeter when we finally secured our League Two status.

After four years away from the club in a playing capacity, I am really pleased to be back wearing our blue shirt as part of the current ladies team. Every time I turn out for the club it means everything to me and I really do give my all as a result.

Macclesfield Town is incredibly special to me - not least because they are my hometown club.

I have also spent twelve years of my own football career playing for Macc and I would have not done that anywhere else.

I am like a stick of rock - cut me in half and I am blue and white all the way through.
