I was delighted to receive an email from Bob Trafford (Media Manager at MTFC) with a very heartwarming welcome into my role as Chairman of the Silkmen Supporters Trust (SST). In addition to this, Bob also provided a clear statement of intent within his message, of his desire to work proactively and collaboratively with the SST towards a spirit of unity at Macclesfield Town Football Club.
This approach can surely be seen as providing nothing but benefit to the football club and its fantastic and loyal fan-base, and please see below a copy of the email that Bob sent to me and my subsequent response.
I would like to offer you my sincere congratulations on becoming Chairman of the Silkmen Supporters Trust.
The work that the SST do is greatly appreciated by us all and I was delighted to hear that you had become Chair for a second time.
Like you, I will do all it takes to progress the club and a good working relationship with the Trust is absolutely essential.
As you know, I am committed to improving all communication channels within the club and for me, the SST play a crucial role in that.
As such, I would be pleased to discuss how the club can develop a symbiotic relationship with the trust at your earliest convenience.
At this present moment, the club need characters who not only display an intense amount of passion themselves – but also elicit this in others.
It is for that reason that you were the obvious choice as SST Chair and I wish you every success in the role.

Hi there Bob.
First of all many thanks for your extremely kind and generous words which are very much appreciated.
Since starting the role of the media manager, many Silkmen fans including myself, have been very impressed with your dedicated efforts towards improving ALL aspects of communication within the club in a person centred and professional way. In addition to this, your undoubted passion for the football club is a genuine joy to behold.
I know that I speak on behalf of my colleagues on the SST board, when stating that we would be delighted to forge a symbiotic relationship with you, and will be in touch to arrange a mutually agreeable date in the very near future. This will then provide an opportunity to discuss how we can start to move forward towards the spirit of unity within all aspects of the club that we all so earnestly crave.
