FORMER Town player Paul Macari has joined UniBond League club Leek Town.
The 27-year-old son of former McAlpine manager Lou made his debut for the First Division side as a substitute in the 2-1 Boxing Day derby defeat at home to Kidsgrove Athletic.
Striker Macari, who lives just down the road from Leek in Stoke, left Town earlier this season after agreeing settlement on his contract.
Having signed from Sheffield United in the summer of 2001, he made just 11 appearances for Town, all from the bench.
Macari began his career as a trainee at Stoke.
