Macclesfield Town boss John Askey was left relatively pleased following Saturday’s goalless draw against Sutton United, after a good season for the Silkmen.

Askey admits that the game itself wasn’t a vintage final match, but is delighted with the overall campaign.

“It wasn’t a classic end of season game; there wasn’t a lot of action, which is typical of how the season’s gone, but I am pleased that overall we’ve had a good season and I think the majority of people think the same. To finish it off with a trip to Wembley is fantastic, and hopefully we can go there and enjoy it and get the win. I think if we can win there then it will give the town a lift and the football club a lift too”.

The Buildbase FA Trophy final is fast approaching, and Askey is hopeful the Silkmen can come away with silverware in just under three weeks’ time.

“It’s the one competition where you know you’ve got a chance of winning, along with the league, and for us to get there is really good. I couldn’t have be more pleased when we did get there, it’s a big achievement and it’s probably a bigger achievement now than what it has been in the past; we beat Forest Green and Tranmere, and there’s a lot of full time clubs in the competition, not just at our level but lower as well so it is a big achievement to get there”.
