Ahead of the reformed club’s first scheduled season of play, Macc have also confirmed that Ed Haslam will manage the new reserve side.
Haslam told the club’s website: “When I was offered the opportunity to manage the Macclesfield FC reserve team by Rob Smethurst and Robbie Savage, I was incredibly humbled.
“In fact, it was a no-brainer for me, I instantly wanted to become involved in this incredible journey of ours and play my part in it.
“The opportunity to represent Macclesfield FC here at the Leasing.com Stadium really is unbelievable and I really do feel honoured to have been given this very special chance.
“I am also grateful to be able to bring Nick Ward in as my assistant. Nick is someone who I have known for a good number of years and he perfectly mirrors my own philosophy and beliefs.”
