Charlotte's Chat

25 November 2019

Ten-year-old Charlotte takes a look back at Saturday's trip to face Salford City.

Last Saturday saw me make my second trip to The Peninsula Stadium - home of Salford City. However this time it really was much more important, as it was a trip with my beloved Macclesfield Town.

We arrived at the ground just after the team news had been announced. It was great to see Jay Harris back but disappointing that neither of our Theo’s are in the squad.

Despite this, I still thought that we had enough to create some real problems for the home side.

It was good to see so many faces when I entered the ground - both familiar and some not so familiar, as we all gathered in anticipation for kick-off.

I found my spot just to the right of the goal to watch the team warm up. The stand really started to fill up as the atmosphere within the away end got more and more electric as each minute past.

Salford got the game underway and the noise behind the goal became distinctly louder. We were all standing together in support of the team and it was a very special feeling.

The game started off very guarded for both teams. Neither of the goalkeepers were really challenged during a scrappy first half. This is meant that the two sides went into the half-time interval level.

Jay Harris got the second half underway and we finally started pushing further up the field. In many ways, it mirrored the Mansfield game last week, as Macc dominated the play and pushed for a deserved lead.

Jak McCourt and Connor Kirby were both so unlucky not to open the scoring, as the game developed into an end-to-end spectacle which kept us all on edge until the final whistle was blown.

It proved to be another point gained as we now look forward to two consecutive home games - starting off with the visit of Bradford City next Saturday.

Hope to see you there!
