The Macclesfield Express is reporting that the Silkmen’s empty goalkeeping slot will be filled by Jonny Brain.

Brain, who signed from hte Silkmen from Port Vale last summer, had battled well with Tommy Lee for the position between the sticks, playing 13 times, keeping four clean sheets.

But a broken leg at Stockport, picked up seconds before County levelled, in a collision with andy Teague, who also broke his leg, ended both their seasons.

He turned down the club’s offer of a deal last month but has trained with the club for much of the summer and played in the 2-2 draw with Buxton.

He will reportedly be offered a month to month deal and presumably will start the season as back-upto Tommy Lee.
