Head Groundsman Gary Lewis has expressed his gratitude to a team of volunteers who braved the horrific conditions to make sure yesterday's game went ahead.
Around a dozen fans came out in the torrential rain to work on the pitch with Gary and his team of regular volunteers and somehow despite the pitch been heavily flooded they managed to ensure the game went ahead.
It was certainly worth it for the Silkmen who moved nine points clear thanks to Danny Whitehead's second-half strike and speaking to mtfc.co.uk, Gary said that made all the hard work worthwhile.
Gary said:"We could have quite easily walked in on Monday morning and given up on the game because the weather was that bad. But we really wanted to play the match and thankfully we got the pitch playable and got the right result.
"I'm so thankful to the volunteers who came out on Monday morning. You can't put a price on what they did. It shows what an amazing club this is and it was so nice to walk around the pitch at the end of the game collecting the corner flags and see so many smiling faces. That made it all worth it."
