Having been around the first-team squad for a couple of years, Callum Maycock finally picked up regular football last season during a loan spell at struggling Macclesfield Town in League Two. A regular for much of the season, Maycock struggled to impose himself on games enough to be particularly fondly remembered by Macclesfield fans. While this isn’t an indication that Maycock can make an impact at a higher level now that he’s back with us, that experience will have been useful in toughening him up and may help him in the longer run.
He is clearly someone rated by Mark Robins, as evidenced by the relatively long-term contract he is on, Maycock could well be a regular part of the first-team squad this coming season. With there being little cover for Liam Kelly, Maycock’s style of play in the centre of the park – deeper-lying and ball-playing – is likely to make him the back-up for our current captain. How many opportunities he’ll have to play remains to be seen, emphasising the importance of Maycock being more aggressive in asserting himself on games than he has shown thus far at Coventry City.
