Earlier this week, Macclesfield Town discovered that they will be competing in Group C of the Checkatrade Trophy for the forthcoming 2018/2019 season and will be facing League 1 sides Accrington Stanley and Blackpool and the West Bromwich Albion Under-21s.
Here is how these fixtures are shaping up:
Macclesfield Town vs Blackpool – week commencing Monday 3rd September 2018.
Accrington Stanley vs Macclesfield Town – week commencing Monday 8th October 2018.
Macclesfield Town vs West Bromwich Albion Under-21s – week commencing Monday 12th November 2018.
The Silkmen will be confirming these dates as soon as possible.
Last season’s Football League newcomers Lincoln City won this competition in April, beating Shrewsbury Town 1-0 in the final at Wembley Stadium.
Lets hope our beloved blues can inherit the newcomers luck and carry on the success of Danny Cowley’s Imps.
