Macclesfield Parish vs Northgate
Saturday 12th May 10.30am
Three weeks ago these sides met for the first time in their history. Macclesfield travelled to Chester on what was the 3rd date arranged and the game finally went ahead. Following a strong first half, Northgate went into half time with a 1-0 break. However, three goals in a crazy 15 minutes turned the game on its head and the hosts didn’t have the energy to turn it around on a baking hot morning.
This being the final game of the first season for Northgate, Clark will be desperate to finish on a high and make amends for the reverse fixture. He has a strong squad available to him, but notably has no recognised goalkeepers in the squad with Davenport, Sharrock and even Bullen all unavailable. Josiah Mainwaring is the only other absentee from the last game, as club captain Russ Morgan comes back, widely tipped to pick up the gloves in a selfless act of leadership. James Holden also makes a long awaited return from injury.
