Manager leaves and club are saddened
Mark Yates left his post as Solihull Moors manager in the summer to take over at Macclesfield who were newly promoted into the Football League but had lost their manager to Shrewsbury.
Things haven’t quite worked out as well as they would have wanted. They currently sit bottom of League Two with just four points from their opening twelve games, those points coming from four draws and they are already five points adrift of Northampton who are two places above them.
Their return to the Football League came after a six year absence. They were relegated in 2011/12, bottom of the league and without a win in their final 23 games. That means they haven’t won any of their last 35 Football League fixtures.
In a brief statement this morning, Macclesfield confirmed the departure of former Claret Yates which read: “Macclesfield Town are saddened to announce that first team manager Mark Yates is to leave the club.
“Mark was brought in to the club during the summer and despite a plethora of injuries to deal with, as well as an enormous amount of bad luck on occasions, fought gallantly in a bid to lift our league position to where we all want it to be.
“We would like to thank Mark for his services to the club and wish him the very best of luck in his future career.”Share this page :
