Managerial change[edit]

Outgoing manager Manner of departure Date of vacancy Position in table Incoming manager Date of appointment
England Gary Simpson Sacked 18 March 2012[1] 21st Brian Horton 19 March 2012

Following Macclesfield's victory over Port Vale on 31 December 2011, the club then went 16 consecutive games without a victory and found themselves out of the relegation places in League Two only by way of goal difference. This prompted chairman Mike Rance to sack Gary Simpson on 18 March 2012.[1] Brian Horton was installed as manager until the end of the season, in what is his second spell at the club, a day later.[2]
