Andy Cole joins Macclesfield

2 years ago

Andy Cole has moved into a coaching role.

Macclesfield Town announcing on Thursday that the Newcastle United legend has taken a part-time role.

When February comes around, it will be 26 years since he arrived at St James Park, yet another inspired Kevin Keegan signing.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Andy Cole has joined up with another former Newcastle player, though not (NUFC) legend, at the League Two club.

Sol Campbell joined Macclesfield as their new manager only in November.

Currently second bottom of League Two and favourites to drop into the National League, they might need Andy Cole to pull on his boots and play, never mind coach.

Good to see the former Newcastle United number nine taking on this role, having had to overcome some serious health issues.

Macclesfield Official Announcement:

‘Macclesfield Town are delighted to confirm that former Manchester United and England striker Andy Cole has joined the club’s coaching staff on a part-time basis.

The 47 year old enjoyed a glittering nineteen year career which saw him win eleven major honours – including five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 1999.

Andy remains the third highest scorer in Premier League history and amassed a staggering 289 goals over the course of his career.

As well as Manchester United, Andy also enjoyed spells with twelve other clubs which include Newcastle United, Manchester City and Portsmouth – where he played alongside Sol Campbell.

We would like to welcome Andy to Macclesfield Town and wish him every success during his time with us.’
