1 June 2018 : Macclesfield Lose Manager After Promotion Back Into The League
League Two newcomers Macclesfield Town have been delivered a blow by the news that they have lost their first team manager John Askey to League One side Shrewsbury Town. The 53 year old had been their boss since April 2013, and had an association with the Cheshire club going back to 1984, when he joined them as a 20 year old striker, whilst the club were in the Northern Premier League.

Askey had been a player during Macclesfield's previous two Conference League titles (now known as the National League) and was their manager when they won the title for a third time, finishing above Tranmere Rovers by a ten point margin. However, he'll not manage them in the Football League, having penned a three year contract at the New Meadow.

This is the second time Shrewsbury have raided the National League Champions for a first team manager, with Ashey's predecessor Paul Hurst being recruited from Grimsby Town shortly after their promotion to the Football League. Hurst has been appointed as Ipswich Town's manager this week, kicking off a chain reaction down the divisions.
