Askey On The Hunt For Reinforcements

Macclesfield Town

John Askey says he is still searching for additions to the squad, as Macclesfield look to continue their push for promotion this season.

The Silkmen have made a strong start to the season, and despite results slipping only slightly in recent weeks, Macc are still in a strong position around the top of the league.

Askey said: “We’re still trying, we’re searching for the right players to bring in, but as you can see from other clubs there’s not many people making moves in the transfer market.

“Those who are available aren’t perhaps what we’re looking for, and there’s no point bringing someone in just for the sake of it. We can’t afford to be doing that with the circumstances at the football club.

“To get the type of player we need doesn’t come around very often, but we’ll keep looking. We’ve got to be patient – it was the same in the summer. If we’d signed early we wouldn’t have got the right players and it would’ve been at the wrong prices. I waited and it paid off, luckily. It’s all I can do is be patient.

“Hopefully the players can keep performing on the pitch, because they’ve done brilliantly so far. There’s not a lot wrong, but we’re always looking to improve.”
