On Tuesday night, the Silkmen recorded a 3-0 win against Crewe Alexandra at Moss Rose. Danny Whitaker had an eventful night as he scored the first goal from the penalty spot and got a vital 90 minutes playing time ahead of the upcoming season.
The midfielder recently signed a new deal with the club and this season will be his tenth in a Macclesfield shirt.
He took some time out to speak to mtfc.co.uk after the game on Tuesday night.
He said: “The game went well, we’ve won, we scored a few goals at home which is nice but more importantly the lads got minutes under their belt which is what you need in pre-season. Plus, we’ve come through injury free.
“We’re all feeling good, we’re all looking sharp in training and we’re taking that into the pre-season games and hopefully we can continue that by bringing it into the Wrexham game in two weeks’ time.
With a high intake of players over the summer John Askey has introduced trialists into the friendly games to try and add to the group and Whitaker also spoke about how the team was jelling.
“It’s going well. These things take time, especially with such a high turnover of players it takes time to gel, learn each other’s weaknesses and strengths but we’re slowly getting there and it can only get better.”
