Macclesfield Town sign Barrow winger Jack Macreth

Steve King

Steve King has made his first signing as manager of Macclesfield, taking Barrow winger Jack Macreth to the Moss Rose on a one-year contract.

Macreth helped Barrow to a mid-table position in the Blue Square Bet Premier last season, scoring five goals and winning their player of the year award.

He started his career at Tranmere and has had loan spells at Burscough, Colwyn Bay and Cammell Laird.

Macclesfield will return to non-league football after relegation last season.

The Silkmen finished bottom of League Two and are preparing for their first campaign outside the Football League for 15 years.
