Throwback Thursday: Silkmen Celebrate Consecutive Promotions Back in 1998

4 June 2020

Back in 1998, The Silkmen were celebrating a feat that many had previously believed to be impossible - as Sammy McIlroy's illustrious side secured back-to-back promotions and with it, entry into the third tier for the first time in our history.

The memories from that glorious era are still vividly recalled by many of loyal fans to this day and they will forever evoke a sense of pride which words can never truly describe.

After our fate was secured with a 3 - 1 victory over Chester City in our final home game of the 1997/98 season, the celebrations continued long into the night as the players, management and supporters gathered together in the Fiesta Lounge for the annual Player of the Year Awards.

In the latest of our Throwback Thursday features, we take you back to that wonderful evening and bring you a range of images documenting how we all celebrated an achievement which very few people thought possible.
