Macclesfield were founder members of the Cheshire County League in 1919 achieving the League and Cup double in 1932.They retained the title in 1933 and finished runners-up the following year when Albert Valentine achieved the club's goal scoring record of 83 goals, and added two more Senior Cup triumphs in 1930 and 1935. The post war years saw three more Senior Cup wins, a League Cup win in 1948 and championship victories in 1953, 1961 and 1964.
The 1986-87 season saw the Silkmen win the Northern Premier League and promotion to the Vauxhall Conference.The League Cup and the President's Cup were also won to complete a fantastic Northern League treble.
The former Manchester United and Northern Ireland international, Sammy McIlroy, was appointed manager at the start of the 1993-94.He achieved immediate success with victory in the Drinkwise Cup and another League scalp was added when the Silkmen beat Hartlepool United in the first round of the FA Cup only to be knocked out in the following round at Crewe Alexandra.
The 2009-10 Season saw the Silkmen become second only to Wycombe Wanderers for continuous membership of the Football league since automatic promotion was introduced. However, their 13th season proved unfortunate with the sudden and untimely death of manager Keith Alexander in March 2010.
Gary Simpson Keiths right hand many at many clubs took over as manager of Macclesfield Town Football Club and has transformed the squad into a youthful blend to aim at building for the future.
