Saturday March 12th 2022, Macclesfield FC hosted Ashton Athletic in an epic clash that could result in Macclesfield FC taking a 13 point over second place club Skelmersdale United at the top of the NWCFL (Northwest Counties Football League). Victory over Ashton would also ensure Macclesfield FC secured promotion.

When you think about this achievement for a club that was resurrected only a little over a year ago, it is a truly inspirational story and for the clubs new management it is a testament to, the work that has been put in by them and the rest of the staff at the club. Macclesfield FC securing the promotion in their very first season.

As the game came to its conclusion, fans began to swarm the pitch as the celebrations began, although discouraged it was fitting and it created a truly special atmosphere when the fulltime whistle was blown.
