Former Newcastle and Ireland Goalkeeper Shay Given is the latest high profile name to be seen training with the Silkmen.
The 41 year old was captured by the club photographer this morning as Macc enter their second week of pre-season training.
Given lives in the area and owns businesses within Macclesfield, therefore it is an easy commute for the Irishman to link up with Sir John and his old Newcastle pal Steve Watson
As with Wes Brown, it is unclear whether there is anything more in this other than the fact that they are trying to keep fit with their local team. However, at the very least, their experience must be seen as being a great help to younger players within the squad.
