Very sad, in particular for the poor Macc supporters, and given their history:
"The beginnings of the club can be traced in part to the 8th Cheshire Rifle Volunteers who played their first match in 1873. The Olympic Cricket Club also played football in Macclesfield, and in October 1876 the two organisations amalgamated to form Macclesfield Football Club. Initially, alternate rugby and football matches were played but gradually football became the main game with the eleven aside format fully adopted for the 1879-90 season. In 1891 they moved to the Moss Rose."
