Posted:Mon 29 May 2017

Take a look at one of our most successful months from this campaign as we give you this season's September Review

As we look back over the months from our successful season, September turned out to be a particular highlight with Macclesfield Town picking up several important wins over some good opponents.Macc started the month off with a home game against Woking, following on from an entertaining 3-2 win over Solihull Moors the week before. The Silkmen sat in a healthy 8th position before the game as they climbed further up the table following this excellent 3-1 win.First-half goals from Danny Whitaker and Danny Rowe proved the difference in quality over Woking. Whitaker’s tap-in on the 28th minute saw John Askey’s side go into the lead which was then followed by a sublime counter attacking move from Macclesfield - allowing Rowe’s left-footed finish from close range to be a contender for goal of the season.  Dennon Lewis pulled one back for The Cards but was then cancelled out by a late finish from Chris Holroyd who secured all three points and a 5th place finish by 5pm that evening.A week later, it was Danny Rowe who made the difference once again as his wonder-strike secured all three points over Bromley on the 10th September. The Silkmen won the game 1-0 in what was a tightly contested contest which was made to be frustrating for John Askey’s blue and white army.Rowe’s 18-yard rocket smashed the back of the net on the 28th minute to make another potential goal of the campaign. Macc stayed at 5th place by the end of the weekend as they hosted Eastleigh next.Macc suffered a minor setback from this game with Eastleigh winning the game 1-0. The Silkmen started the game well and had several chances through Kingsley James and Danny Whitaker before going a goal down on the 50th minute.It was Luke Coulson who got the goal which allowed Easteligh to continue their unbeaten run from the start of the season as Macclesfield dropped down to 9th.Macclesfield needed to bounce back if they wanted to catch a very competitive play-off chasing group and they did so with a good 2-1 win over Guiseley. First half goals from Chris Holroyd and Ollie Norburn secured the three points over the bottom-placed side.Holroyd’s goal came in the 14th minute as he managed to chip the keeper from close-range, right infront of the travelling Silkmen faithful. Norburn continued his excellent form into the new season by getting onto the end of Mitch Hancox’s emphatic cross at the far post to put Macc into a comfortable position.Jordan Preston managed to pull one back for the hosts but they were unable to catch the impressive Silkmen as they came back to Macclesfield with all three points. Macc remained 9th.It was a quiet month for midweek games and the Tuesday night clash with Wrexham turned out to be a highlight for the Silkmen. The impressive 3-0 victory over local rivals allowed Macc to finish on a high-note going into October.A Danny Whitaker brace and a goal from Paul Lewis saw Macc finish the month as one of their best as they managed to pick up 12 points out of a possible 15.The win saw John Askey’s men climb to 5th in the National League with a month of tough games in October coming up.
