The Silk Pledge 2022/23


Since it began, 8 seasons ago, the Pledge has raised over £12,000 for the Silkmen


The SST are going to be running the Pledge again this next season 2022/23. The aim of the scheme, like most of the Silkmen Supporters’ Trust activities, is to raise money to be used funding facilities for the fans of Macclesfield Football Club. We had our best ever return four seasons ago, £2800, and we have generated in total over £12,000 for the club in the five years up to March 2020, since we started it - a tremendous effort from all our pledgers. Thanks so much to everyone who has participated in prior years. 


The pledges are already coming in for the forthcoming season in the Northern Premier League. For those who haven’t got involved  before, here’s your opportunity. It’s a fun way to help the trust directly related to the actual performance on the pitch. I do hope you can join in.


This is how it works:


We ask you to pledge £0.25, £0.50, £1.00 or more under various headings such as clean sheets, various players scoring goals, team goals, team points, wins, and any other sensible pledges which you think are fun to make. The more ‘bizarre’ the better – but only as long as I can keep a track of it! Some outwardly seem unlikely but one was a player defied that by scoring from his own half during a match in one of the previous season!.


All pledges will be based on 1st team games in the Northern Premier League - West Division, and in the FA Cup, and in the FA Trophy (unless you specify differently) and will run from the first game of the season


Those who support the scheme with a pledge may have their name and details of their pledge displayed in the match program occasionally and  also on the SST web site.

Many thanks!
