EFL confirms Macclesfield vs Grimsby Town fixture will go ahead on Boxing Day

Grimsby Town will travel to Macclesfield on Boxing Day after the EFL confirmed that the League Two fixture will go ahead

After being served a ‘zero capacity notice’ at Moss Rose, the crisis club were forced to postpone their weekend clash against Plymouth Argyle.

And with such a quick turnaround before they meet Town, there was serious doubt as to whether or not the game would take place.

However, the EFL have this morning confirmed that sufficient safety action has been taken – although the Silkmen will face future sanction from the governing body.

Macclesfield have already been deducted six points this season.

A statement from the EFL read: “Last week, the club was served a zero capacity notice by the local Safety Advisory Group (SAG) and as a result of this, its fixture against Plymouth Argyle did not take place on Saturday, December 21.

“Following the postponement the club, with assistance from the EFL, has continued to work to find a solution to ensure the fulfilment of further fixtures, and the SAG is now satisfied that the requirements of the Safety Certificate have been met.

“The club received a six-point deduction on Thursday after pleading guilty to charges of non-payment of wages and failure to fulfil its fixture obligations. A further four points were suspended as a result of the charges.

The club will now face a further charge for failing to fulfil its fixture with Plymouth. That game has now been rearranged for Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 7.45pm

A very simple solution would have been to make them play the game on the day it should have been but play it at Argyle. Grimsby fairy muff but by the time we play Macclesfield again they could well sort themselves out.

Double Standards rule OK!

PAFC delay calling off a game until a couple of hours before kick off  when any fool can see that it's unsafe to go ahead and that's fine.

Macca game called off the day before and they are villains.

C'mon guys, get real

I'm calling no one villain I just suggested the EFL could have said to Macclesfield, "you can't play at your gaff, if you can't get a safety certificate then you'll have to go to Plymouth to play", they could say the same to all their fixtures, it punishes them and stops the fixture card backing up. Obviously it would never happen without five years of planning anyway so it's a moot point. Macs will probably be even more fooked in a few weeks though.
