Macclesfield Town were the team to beat when we first arrived in the Conference – and (to start) that’s what we did; spoiling the Silkmen’s 1994-5 GM Vauxhall Conference title party on the last day of term by thumping them 3-0 at their place. We kept up the momentum for the next season, claiming the Conference crown from them.
Back they came at us, however – and with a vengeance. It was us or them for the 1996-7 title and it was us who ran out of steam amid an FA Trophy-induced fixture backlog. This all despite a match that never happened *curious face*. It’s not even as if that’s the end of the tale either. In 2010, the Silkmen were the first side we played in the Football League.
And don’t even get us started on the events of summer 2020.
