On This Day Gallery: Stevenage Borough 2 v 3 Macclesfield Town

29 March 2020

Twenty-three years ago, Macclesfield Town recorded one of our greatest-ever Vauxhall Conference victories as Sammy McIlroy's side came back from a two goal deficit to defeat Stevenage Borough with ten man at Broadhall Way.
The match remains firmly etched into all the hearts and minds of everyone that attended, as it symbolised an against all odds mentality which is rarely seen at any level of the game.
Even now, people still look back on that afternoon with an incredible amount of pride - with some Silkmen fans suggesting that it is the most dramatic game that they have ever witnessed.
It wasn't just about the three points, or the comeback victory itself. It was about the solidarity and belief that we all enjoyed in the face of the greatest adversity.
Despite the fact that former Chairman Arthur Jones had passed away in tragic circumstances the previous September, a monumental effort by everyone had the club had meant that twenty-three years ago we really were on the cusp of fulfilling his dream of seeing Macclesfield Town in the Football League.
Here are some images from that incredible afternoon.
