Our Complete Record At Boundary Park

17 October 2019

Macclesfield Town face The Latics of Oldham Athletic this coming Saturday, in what represents just our third trip to Boundary Park in competitive action.
 
The first time we made the journey was back on 8th September 1998, as Sammy McIlroy's illustrious side looked to secure their first win in the third tier of English football.
 
Despite the fact that the game was played on a Tuesday evening, there was still an electric atmosphere at Boundary Park - particularly in the away end, as a large and vociferous following proudly backed their heroes from the first minute until the last.
 
Their faith was to be rewarded that evening, as second-half goals from Dominic Barclay and Steve Wood proved to be enough to hand Macc all three points.
 
The victory not only proved to be our first of the 1998/99 season, but it also injected everyone with a healthy dose of confidence ahead of another local derby four days later - as we prepared for the visit of Manchester City.
 
Our only other trip to Boundary Park in competitive action came last August, when both teams were searching for their first win of the season.
 
Bournemouth loanee Sam Sturbridge put the hosts ahead with a clinical strike in the 16th minute and their lead was doubled eight minutes after the interval when Johan Branger's deflected effort flew past Rhys Taylor.
 
Michael Rose's free-kick halved the deficit on the hour mark, yet The Latics were to seal their victory in injury-time through a fine Ishmael Miller strike.
 
Therefore, our complete record at Boundary Park is as follows -
 
Played 2. Won 1. Drawn 0. Lost 1.
