Club Connections - Eastleigh

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Wed 18 Apr 2018

The Silkmen may have secured promotion to the English Football League as Dover took points from Tranmere on Tuesday evening, but there are still two games to go for Macclesfield as they face Eastleigh this weekend.

Following last weekend’s draw with Leyton Orient at the Moss Rose, Macclesfield sit only three points away from being crowned champions of the National League with Eastleigh up next.

Though the Spitfires sit in the lower-mid table, the Ten Acres has proven to be a difficult ground for Macclesfield in the past, with Eastleigh winning five of the two clubs’ seven encounters.

As we begin to look ahead to the weekend’s game, take a look at three players who have crossed the divide and turned out for both sides.

Ryan Cresswell

30-year-old defender with priors at both clubs, Cresswell spent six months on loan with Macclesfield in the first-half of 2008. The centre-back grabbed one goal for the Silkmen across 19 games and made the move to Eastleigh via Northampton Town in 2016. Since his move he has featured intermittently for the club.  

Scott Wilson

Scott is currently the club’s top scorer in the 2017/18 season and has enjoyed no end of success since agreeing to join Macclesfield directly from Eastleigh at the beginning of this season.

He bagged six goals in 37 games for the Spitfires, but has already more than doubled his tally with his former club for the Silkmen this season.
