Macclesfield Town friendly highlights
Highlights from Friday night’s pre-season friendly against National League side Macclesfield Town have been uploaded to YouTube by Stockport County TV, and you can watch them here if you haven’t already seen them. The Hatters lost 2-1 to their local neighbours at the Moss Rose in the latest warm up match.
A mistake from debutant defender Jordan Thorniley allowed ex-Hatter Kristian Dennis in on goal, as he was robbed of the ball by Dennis after receiving a short free-kick from his keeper just outside the area, and County’s leading marksman from last season made no mistake as he rounded Hurst before putting the ball in the net to make it 1-0 to the hosts just before half time. Chris Holroyd made it 2-0 to Macclesfield in the 54th minute as he fired home from inside the area after being set up by Danny Whittaker down the right hand side.
The Hatters halved the deficit in the 84th minute, when second half substitute Charlie Russell scored after Kay Odejayi had headed the ball on to him following a punt up the field from keeper Hurst.
County’s starting line up: Hurst, Morton, Roberts, Ellison, Thorniley, Montrose, Baggie, Rule, Colley, Evans, Garvin.
