We take a look at three players to have donned a shirt for both the Silkmen and Rovers.

Ollie Norburn

Beginning his career at Chelsea, before spells at Leicester and Bristol City amongst others, Norburn joined the Silkmen in the summer of 2016. The midfielder impressed for the Silkmen scoring in the FA Trophy final loss to York City as well as breaking Rovers hearts scoring in both legs of the FA Trophy semi-final to give the Silkmen a trip to Wembley. Norburn joined Tranmere on a two-year contract in May after rejecting a new contract with the Silkmen.

Sam Ramsbottom

The 6ft 5in shot-stopper spent his youth career at Tranmere Rovers, before spells in Ireland and a short-term deal at Barrow before joining Macclesfield as cover for Shwan Jalal. Ramsbottom has impressed when called upon particularly replacing the injured Jalal early in his Macclesfield career in a victory over Leyton Orient in October.

Connor Jennings

Jennings first played for the Silkmen in 2013, in a loan spell from parent club Scunthorpe United. He then had a loan spell at Grimsby Town, before joining Wrexham in a permanent move. Rovers signed Jennings in 2016, before he re-joined the Silkmen on a one-month loan. Jennings is in good form for Tranmere, scoring the only goal in their last game against Bromley.
