Nathan Targeting More Silkmen Success

Macclesfield Town

Nathan Blissett is lookiing for more success with Macclesfield Town after signing a two-year-deal with the Silkmen on Monday.

Blissett, aged 27, scored five goals in sixteen appearances for Macclesfield whilst on loan from Plymouth Argyle during the second half of last season, and is excited to be a part of the EFL return to Moss Rose.

Speaking to Silkmen TV after putting pen-to-paper, he explained: “I’ve really enjoyed my time so far at the club. The close-knit group of players; the fans; it’s all been good for me.

"I’ve had offers from elsewhere, but the main thing for me is to be playing in the Football League and testing myself at that level. So, I’m glad that I’m here to do that.

“We’ve all done what we wanted to do in getting promoted, and the next chapter is to prove ourselves in League two and see what we can do there.”

After his impressive displays for Romulus in the Evo-Stik League Division One South, the striker has gone on to play for eight different teams since 2012, including Macc.

He has previously made 28 appearances in EFL competitions, including a role in the back-end of Plymouth’s 2016/17 promotion campaign, where he found the net twice.

“I’ve had a few games in League Two and League One, so I know a little bit about those leagues and what it takes to be in them.

“I feel like I’m the type of player that can be successful in these leagues,” he stated. “Hopefully this bodes well for the club.”

However, Blissett is desperate to start adding to EFL e appearance tally as a Silkman and wants to hit the ground running having performed well in a Macclesfield shirt already.

“I want to have a good pre-season as we’ve got some great games coming up. There are some big teams in League Two, but with the squad that we had last season, and hopefully will have come August, we’ll be able to stamp our authority and get some results.”
