Ground number 136
First Visit = 16-1-16 Truro 2-2 Macclesfield (FA Trophy 2nd Round) 6/10
There were certainly mixed emotions amongst the Macclesfield faithful when Truro away came out of the hat for this second round game, with a 619 mile round trip not everyone’s idea of a relaxing day trip.
Ground number 135
First Visit = 2-1-16 Tranmere 1-2 Macclesfield (Vanarama National League) 6/10
A huge ground (it holds over 16,000!) for a fifth division side and it really makes you want to get back into the league to go to more clubs of this size.
Prenton Park has a lot of history and has been the home of Tranmere for over 100 years.
It is dominated by the imposing Kop behind one of the goals and is a tidy modern stadium that not so long ago was hosting second tier football.
