Macclesfield’s manager John Askey believes the club’s fans deserve a big day out at Wembley after all they have been through.
His Silkmen travel to Tranmere Rovers this weekend looking to earn a place in the F.A Trophy final.
Rovers will be favourites after drawing 1-1 at Moss Rose but Askey believes it would mean the world to Town fans to make it through after a traumatic time in the Cheshire town.
“It would be a reward for everyone at the football club who has put their hard work into the club, it would be for the supporters who donated money, it enabled us to build a squad,” said the Macclesfield manager.
“The club going to Wembley would be massive, we hit rock bottom about five years ago and it shows everyone that we’re progressing.”
He told the club’s website: “At the start of the season you’re looking to win things and this is probably the biggest game for the football club in a long time.
“Each game against them has been tight, hopefully on Saturday it’ll be a similar sort of game, but we fancy our chance we’ve got to believe that we can win and if things go for us then there’s no reason we can’t.”
