“The Committee is aware of rumours that the recent acquisition by the Council of Macclesfield Town Football Club may lead to the football and rugby club relocating to a shared ground and combined facilities .

The Committee would like to make it clear:

–          We have never been involved in any discussions that have taken place between Macclesfield FC and the Borough Council

–          We have no knowledge (nor would we expect to have) of the financial affairs of the football club.

–          Any decision on a ground re-location for the rugby club will be carried out in accordance with the rules of the club after proper scrutiny of proposals and full consultation and agreement with its membership.”
