Former Silkmen Skipper Andy Halls has spoken to us in relation to his move to Cheshire neighbours Chester City.
The 25 year old left the Moss Rose shortly after the FA Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium, and joined fellow ex Silkmen Kingsley James and John McCoombe.
Halls made 109 appearances for Macc after signing from Stockport County in 2013. He was an integral part of the side for four consecutive years and his move to our National League rivals came as somewhat of a surprise to many of the Moss Rose faithful.
Last Friday, Halls was subject to an angry backlash from some Macc fans after tweeting the below – which suggested that some player have not been paid the bonuses they were owed as a result of taking the club to the Trophy Final.
Halls came across as a likeable, straight talking bloke, who was eager not to be presented in a way which is bad-mouthing Macc. The tweet may well have been rather naive but I firmly believe that it was a tongue in cheek comment.
However, the fundamental issue here is surely one which surrounds why we are not paying players what they are owed, when they are owed it?
Check back here tomorrow when Andy reveals why he could not stay at the Moss.
