Moose Tours Away Player Of The Year Named

9 July 2020

Throughout the season, the support that we have enjoyed away from the Moss Rose has been phenomenal once again.

As a Club, we are incredibly grateful for this - as we genuinely appreciate the fact that trawling the length and breadth of the country in order to support the team is a costly business!

Our away support embodies some of our most committed supporters - none more so than those who continue to travel on the legendary Moose Tours.

For what has now been decades, coaches which have borne the affectionate nickname of the dearly departed David Littler have travelled to virtually every single away game involving The Silkmen.

Together with his devoted father Alan, David created what is rightly considered to be a Macclesfield Town institution - with fans spanning the generations gathering together in order to back the team wherever they may be.

Despite their passing, both Alan and David's legacies remain as vibrant as ever and this was poignantly exemplified during our last EFL fixture before lockdown - as a full coach made it's way to Devon for the weekend ahead of our clash with Plymouth Argyle.

At the end of every game, supporters on the coach are asked to pick their Man of the Match - with the results collated to determine an overall Away Player of the Season.

Charged with this task is the Club's Stadium Manager and Moose Tours regular Chris Edge, who spoke us in order to unveil this year's recipient -

"First of all, on behalf of myself, Bernie, Ian and everyone else who helps to run Moose Tours, can I say a big thank you to everyone who has travelled with us during the 2019/20 season.

"After looking at all the votes cast on away trips, there was one clear winner of this year's award.

"It goes to a player who has given their all for the entirety of the campaign, whilst also displaying superb leadership qualities both on and off the field.

"He has adhered himself greatly to all our fans, particularly over the last twelve months and I am sure that the result will be a popular one with many of our supporters.

"The winner of the 2019 / 2020 Moose Tours Away Player of the Year Award is the skipper, Fiacre Kelleher.

"We would like to congratulate Fiacre on winning this award - it is incredibly well deserved."
