County Players Tribute Night

Posted: 6 October 2010

On Saturday 16th October, the Stockport County Supporters’ Co-operative and Help the Hatters will be jointly holding a County Players Tribute Evening at Edgeley Park.

Doors open straight after the final whistle verses Barnet, admission is FREE, and all supporters young and old are welcome. The bar will be open, including Fosters at £2 a pint and food will also be available to buy.

Every fan attending the event could end up being one of fifty supporters to make a special award to one of fifty County stars. Presentations start at 6pm, with final presentations no later than 8pm.

All supporters who get the honour of making a presentation will receive a unique memento signed by the player receiving the special award, together with a souvenir photograph marking the occasion.

Kenny Boxshall will be Master of Ceremonies for the evening, which promises to be the most significant gathering of County stars since Stockport County celebrated 100 years at Edgeley Park.

The Club will be displaying a collection of County memorabilia during the event, and supporters groups will also be running stalls, including a huge sale of old County Programmes, ensuring that supporters have plenty to keep them occupied in-between each set of presentations.

George Haigh, County’s oldest surviving player, now in his 90’s, who made his County debut back in 1938, will be the supporters’ guest of honour, on what promises to be a truly unforgettable evening.
