Macclesfield Town v Shrewsbury Town
Friday April 6th, 2012, 7.45pm
By Myles Munsey
This was a most entertaining encounter which despite the home side’s considerable efforts was won by the travellers 3-1. The wet surface meant the ball fizzing around and the match was played at high tempo.
Well taken goals by Collins and Wright had the Shrews in control before Mendy replied with a left-foot rocket into the top corner. A fight back was extinguished by another smart finish by Collins which wrapped things up.
There was a tremendous atmosphere in the home end which had its own resident drummer. Plenty of banter and noise for the first 80 minutes or so then Shrewsbury’s third goal left the place understandably deflated.
Getting from the ground:
Straight out, then down the hill back into town.
For those who like the traditional football ground then Moss Rose is it -even down to the wooden turnstile booths. This is an unashamedly down to earth venue but there are a number of interesting features making the ground suitably arcane. Moss Rose I’m told is named after the pub (long demolished) that used to overlook the corner that joins the Main Stand and Silkmen End.
Friendly staff, no hassle, no frills and no prawn sandwiches! 10/10
