6 – goals scored by the Silkmen

11 – The number of points the Silkmen won in August

12 – The minute of our first National League goal this season courtesy of Noe Baba vs Wrexham

18 – Substitutions made by John Askey this month

30 – Noe Baba’s wonder strike against Wrexham was from 30 yards out

100 – David Fitzpatrick reached 100 games for the Silkmen against Dover

528 – The number of miles covered in the roundtrip from the Crabble Athletic Ground to the Moss Rose and back for the 37 Dover fans

669 – Total number of minutes played – including injury time

15,170 – the number of fans (home and away) that watched the Silkmen in August
