My Favourite Silkmen Memory: Tom Jobson

5 April 2020

Recently, we asked all our loyal fans to get in touch with us and let us know what their favourite memory involving The Silkmen is. In the next instalment in a series of recollections, Media Assistant Tom Jobson takes us back to last May, when we secured out EFL status on the last day of the season.

I have been involved with the media side of the club since the beginning of the 2018/19 season, working with Media Manager Bob Trafford to help coordinate the clubs’ media output. 

My main responsibilities at the club include covering matches via our social media channels, interviewing players post-match and writing for the club website. 

Having only been involved with the club since the start of last season, this is a relatively straightforward choice for me - our survival on the final day of last season. 

Whilst I can’t claim to have been a lifelong supporter of the club, it is undoubtedly my most cherished footballing memory. 

For a brief moment that day relegation looked to be on the cards as we fell behind and Notts County took the lead in their game, but thankfully it wasn’t to be as we recovered to maintain our status as a League Two club. 

I have a number of fond memories from that day; introducing a couple of my friends to the club for the first time, celebrating with the players and staff after the game and, of course, Elliott Durrell’s goal and the subsequent  outpour of emotion from the Moss when the final whistle sounded. 

I remember a jubilant Tyrone Marsh asking me to point out his cameo at full back in the match report (sorry, Tyrone), and the celebrations in the McIlroy after the game will always be something I look back on fondly. 

Despite only planning to be involved with the club alongside my final year of studies at Staffordshire University, I am still involved with the club to this day; and like many of you look forward to the day we can return to the Moss and get behind the Silkmen once more. 

Tell us about your Silkmen memories by emailing press@mtfc.co.uk and we will feature them on our site!
