The SST Launches the new 50/50 ticket
The SST launched the new 50/50 ticket at the opening home match of the season yesterday against Burscough.
The initial take up of the new tickets was very encouraging .
The wining ticket number was 0170 with an amount of £284.00 awaiting the owner of the winning ticket, which has so far not been claimed.
If the owner of the winning ticket contacts the SST upon proof of providing us with the winning ticket they should be able to claim the amount above.
The SST plan to have the 50/50 tickets available for every forthcoming 1st team home match this season.

The SST gives evidence to the fan led review into football Governance
The Silkmen Supporters’ Trust (SST) have given evidence to the fan led review into football governance chaired by Tracey Crouch MP.
The SST revealed how the combination of the deliberate actions and behaviour of the single owner of Macclesfield Town FC (MTFC) combined with the indifference, inability and lack of Governance in the EFL to deal with bad ownership led to the liquidation of the football club. The owner was allowed to be sole manager of affairs and through opaque financial management of a viable, very low spending club resulted in £2.2m of debts and 11 High Court Winding-up orders.
The SST also pointed out how the EFL with a distorted disciplinary process, combined with an orchestrated campaign by senior figures in other EFL clubs, focussed on removing MTFC from the EFL through unfit, self-regulated governance. In the whole process the fans, players and employees were rendered impotent by both the owner and the EFL.
Many points where the FA or EFL could have intervened were identified. The SST believe that in the future there should be regular independent reviews of club management in which all stakeholders’ (fans, owners, PFA, communities, employees) views are heard. There must be independent, external scrutiny of the EFL, critical assessment of its owners’ club structure and an enquiry if clubs fail.
The SST endorsed the FSA’s restructuring plans.
The S.S.T. would not exist without your support. Please join us and help to make a difference to your football club. You can find the forms that you need to join here.
The Silkmen Supporters’ Trust is committed to the improvement and development of Macclesfield FC by working in partnership with the Club, the fans and the community to the mutual benefit of all.
