‘Shame on you Amar Alkadhi’ – Plenty of Macclesfield fans react to club’s latest social media post

Macclesfield Town fielded a team of youngsters and on-loan players in yesterday’s FA Cup tie against non-league Kingstonian who promptly dumped them out the cup with a 4-0 victory.

The Silkmen’s senior players went on strike over unpaid wages in the week prior to the game, and rather than forfeit the match and risk a two year ban from the competition; the club chose to cobble together a team to fulfil the fixture, which took place against a background of fan protest against controversial owner Amar Alkadhi.


It was a difficult day at Mose Rose; the inexperienced side were outplayed by their seventh-tier opponents in front of a sparse but volatile crowd. Many home fans chose to boycott the match in support of the players and in protest over the way the club is being run by Alkadhi, but those who did attend made their feelings clear to the club’s hierarchy.

The hostility spilt over on to social media after the game when the club posted a tweet congratulating the players on their performance but made no mention of the club’s current problems. The post provoked a furious reaction from many fans, totally disillusioned and angry at the club’s plight.

Here is a selection of enraged supporters responses on Twitter.
