Former Macclesfield winger Danny Rowe has expressed his gratitude to Silkmen supporters as he departs the club for EFL Championship side Ipswich Town.
Danny made the move to Ipswich last week, making a huge step from non-league football to England’s second tier, joining a side currently in 14th place and 10 points outside of the play-off spots.
Rowe has spent four years with Macclesfield since joining the club in the Summer of 2013, and after some struggles a short while after his initial move he earned a starting spot in the team and was a regular at the Moss as well as a fan favourite.
So far this season the winger had bagged eight goals in 29 appearances, his highest tally for the Silkmen, and he has earned his move up the divisions.
On completing his move to Ipswich, Rowe told the itfc.co.uk: “Macclesfield have been great for me and I’d like to thank everyone there for helping me progress as a player.
“A couple of years ago I took a break from the game and took a course to become a personal trainer,” he revealed. “At that time I thought I might walk away from football. I wasn’t very happy playing at that level, but thankfully I got it together and now here I am.
“There was a lot of things going on off the field at that time, it was a tough period which I don’t really want to get into, but I soon realised I wanted to back out there and thankfully Macclesfield took me back.
“I always had ambitions to get back at a higher level and always knew I was good enough. Players develop at different stages and I think I’m ready to progress now.”
