Silkmen Hardship Fund
We did it

To support players and non playing staff of Macclesfield Town, who are suffering financial hardship due to late or non payment of wages.

Macclesfield Town are a football club who play in the English Football League 2 . Over many months now the players and non playing staff of MTFC  have been paid late by the club. This has been well publicised in the last few days, with players feeling unable to play in the league fixture against Crewe Alexandra due to the stresses associated with the late payment of wages which has impacted upon many aspects of their lives. 

The Silkmen Supporters Trust (SST) consider this to be an intolerable situation which has gone on for far too many months at our club and it’s just not fair. The SST are now setting up a Crowdfunder account to provide further funds to assist any of those who are currently suffering temporary financial hardship. 

When this untenable situation is satisfactorily resolved, we would wish to use the balance of monies unpaid to support further appropriate SST projects, which would be for the benefit of all fans, club and the local community.
