All At Sea guide to Macclesfield

27 Oct

I FEEL as though I’ve only just written this. Blues return to Moss Rose after two trips last season, with the Silkmen showing good form at home having not lost there since the opening day of the season.
As always, Southend will be allocated the terracing behind one goal and a small section of seating in a new stand to the right of that terrace. Facilities are OK, particularly in the stand, but those in the terrace are open to the elements so bring a brolly. Ticket prices are £14 on the terrace and £18 in the stand.
Getting there is fairly simple by train, Macclesfield is on the west coast main line between Stoke and Manchester and trains get you there in under two hours from Euston. Current ticket prices are about £78 for a bog-standard off-peak return ticket. The station is over a mile from the ground but there are plenty of decent pubs en-route in which cheap (by southern standards) booze abounds. The closest to the away end is probably the Golden Lion, which is around the corner from the away turnstiles.
Macclesfield is always a cracking trip with friendly fans, some brilliant boozers and plenty of laughs.
