‘Bit disappointed’ – Fans react as Macclesfield Town appoint new manager

Macclesfield Town have confirmed the appointment of Solihull Moors boss Mark Yates as their new manager on a three-year deal.

He takes over the National League champions after former boss John Askey was appointed as Shrewsbury manager last June.

Yates had been in charge of National League Solihull since November 2017.

Speaking to, Mark said: “I’m really pleased. It’s happened really quickly but I’m joining a club with momentum and a club that are on the up.

“Everybody at the Football Club did a fantastic job last season and I just want to carry that on in a very competitive League Two.

“I’m looking forward to working with the players that are here but also bringing in some new faces too. I’ve been very impressed with the Chairman and I’m sure we’re going to work tirelessly to put together a squad that will do well next season.”

Club Chairman Mark Blower added: “I’m delighted to announce Mark as our new manager.

“He has all the attributes that we were looking for and I’m sure he will be a big asset for the Football Club. He has all the credentials to be the perfect man to lead Macclesfield Town on their return to the EFL.”
