6th December 2019

Words: Alex Birch; Pictures: Stefan Willoughby

THE Magpies (23rd, 23pts) look to continue their revival in the familiar surroundings of south Manchester..

Who: Stockport County Football Club (8th, 35pts); Founded in 1883 and managed by Jim Gannon (5th season, 3rd spell), the Hatters go into Saturday’s game off the back of a 5-1 drubbing of Torquay United in Devon.

What: Vanarama National League (Fixture #25)

Where: Edgeley Park (SK3 9DD)

When: Saturday, December 7 @ 3pm


Chris Holroyd bagged a brace, which was topped off by a late Elliot Newby strike, to secure a 3-0 win in front of a big Victory Park crowd back in September.


We’ve had some good battles with Stockport and I’m sure Saturday will be no different. We picked up a really good win in September and we have a good record at Edgeley Park, so we’ll go there with a certain amount of confidence, backed by our recent run of three wins in four. We’re a match for anyone in this division, as we proved at Barrow a couple of weeks ago, and I’m sure we’ll give another good account of ourselves – Jamie Vermiglio
