Macclesfield Town would like to convey our most sincere and grateful thanks to lifelong fan Chris Edge, as he steps down as our Deputy Safety Officer.
Chris will always be a popular and much-loved figure here at the Moss Rose and will continue in his position as Stadium Manager.
Speaking to the official site earlier today, Chris stated -
"Everyone knows that I have blue blood running through my veins and I have always been deeply honoured to represent my Club in a formal capacity.
"From my days as a commissionaire, to those as a steward where I progressed through the ranks and then more recently into the roles of Stadium Manager and Deputy Safety Officer - I have loved every minute, I really have.
"Not only that, but my commitment to the Club has, and never will waver. By stepping aside as Deputy Safety Officer, it will not only allow the Club to bring in new blood, but it will also allow me to focus my energies on all aspects of the Stadium Manager role.
"Together with Safety Officer John Moorhouse, I will give my absolute support to the new Deputy and look forward to working with them both going forward."
Further to this, Media Manager Bob Trafford commented -
"Everyone knows Chris is part of the fabric here at the Moss Rose and always will be.
"He is regarded in the highest possible manner by everyone here at the Club and on a personal level, I am delighted that Chris is continuing in his capacity as Stadium Manager.
"The dedication and commitment that he has shown and continues to show to our Club over so many years exemplifies just why Macclesfield Town is so special to so many of us."
The Club are now looking to appoint a new Deputy Safety Officer and you can find further details on this here.
