Robbie Savage: Making Macclesfield. BBC Sport.

I’m a relative late comer to the beautiful game, although my dad was a life long Southampton supporter. I love a feel good football story and Robbie Savage and local businessman Rob Smethurst created a great one when Rob brought Macclesfield FC and with Robbie put the club back on the football league map.

Macclesfield FC currently sit top of the North West Counties Football League Premier Division.

Football.

I think the best place to work in football is England.

(José MourinhoPortuguese football manager)

And here are grounds from my football journey around England this year.

King Power Stadium, Leicester City FC
The Dripping Pan, Lewes FC
Riverside Park, Barrow Town FC
St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton FC
The Amex Stadium, Brighton FC

From Premier League (Southampton, Brighton and Leicester City) to the Isthmian League Division One South (Lewes) down to East Midlands Counties League (Barrow Town) football unites our country and our sense of national identity.
