In the two years that Rob was with us at the club he enjoyed unprecedented success that included reaching the final of the FA Trophy in his first season with us and then last season when we reached the holy grail of a return to the English Football League. Rob utilised the hashtag ‘believe’ as a catalyst towards our journey to Wembley and that belief carried on into our promotion winning season, and I can also clearly remember the heartfelt words that Rob uttered on the volunteers evening last March where he spoke of how proud he had been to be part of the Silkmen ‘family.’ Upon reading the news that Rob would be moving to pastures new, I contacted him to thank him for all of his contributions to Macclesfield Town FC over the past several years and wish him all the very best for the future. Rob responded with these words ‘It was an absolute pleasure, loved it all and had a brilliant two years. Only regret is that I didn’t get to say goodbye to everyone properly. Will keep in touch and will always have a place in my heart for the Silkmen.’
Rob, you are an absolute gentleman and a thoroughly nice bloke. I know that I speak for all Silkmen who had the pleasure of meeting you in wishing you and your lovely family every happiness in whatever you endeavour to do in the future and please do keep in touch with us.
