Macclesfield Town assistant manager Steve Watson has today confirmed that loanee Connor Jennings has returned to his parent club Tranmere Rovers.
Jennings joined Macclesfield on a one-month loan in February and made five appearances during his second spell at the Moss Rose, scoring in the 2-0 win over Braintree.
Connor has now returned to Prenton Park and while Steve is hopeful that another member of the Macc squad will now take the chance in the first-team, he hasn’t given up on Jennings featuring for the Silkmen again this term.
He told Silkmen Player HD: “We are disappointed that Connor has had to go back to Tranmere and he wouldn’t have wanted to sign off with a game like he did on Saturday.
“But I’d like to think that maybe somewhere down the line Micky Mellon might have a change of heart and let Connor come back to us this season. Tranmere are a squad with a lot of quality and a lot of bodies.
“They probably have four fit strikers without Connor at the minute so maybe we can convince Micky that us having Connor might help us pick up points against sides that are in and around Tranmere in the league at the minute.
“What it does do is give somebody else a chance. I thought James Thorne looked bright when he came on against Forest Green, so there will be a chance for James now.”
