Macclesfield Town are delighted to announce that midfielder Danny Whitaker has signed a new one-year contract with the Football Club.
Whitaker played the first 45 minutes of pre-season victory over Bury on Tuesday evening and then put pen-to-paper on a new deal with the Silkmen.
The forthcoming season will be Whitaker’s tenth in a Macclesfield shirt across two separate spells at the Football Club.
After signing from local football, Danny impressed in the youth team and reserves before making his debut against Exeter City in February 2002 and scoring with almost his first touch.
An instant regular, he made a further 15 appearances that season, and went on to make more than 200 appearances for the club, scoring 32 goals.
Leaving the club in 2006, he joined Port Vale in League One and spent two seasons there, playing just shy of 100 games in all competitions in two seasons.
From there he joined Oldham Athletic before signing for Chesterfield in 2010 where he spent three seasons.
In 2013 he rejoined Macc and has been a regular in the Silkmen side since. Now nearing 400 games for the Football Club, the 36-year-old made 43 National League appearances for the Silkmen last season scoring eight goals.
He also played a key role in our progression to the FA Cup Second Round as well as the FA Trophy Final at Wembley in which Whitaker was one of the stand out performances for John Askey’s side.
Whitaker will now look to use his experience to help John Askey’s new look side and you’ll be able to see an interview with Danny later this week on our YouTube channel.
