Horton departs relegated Silkmen

Published Add your comment

Brian Horton has parted company with Macclesfield by mutual agreement after failing to save the club from npower League Two relegation.

Horton, 63, returned for a second spell in charge at the Moss Rose last month after Gary Simpson was sacked on the back of 14 league matches without victory.

However, the former Manchester City and Port Vale chief was unable to bring about a change in fortunes and eight more winless games garnered only two points, culminating in Saturday's relegation-sealing 2-0 home loss to Burton.
