Stockport County FC Community Foundation celebrated what was a fantastic, inspiring season on and off the pitch on Saturday 6th May. A season which has seen us deliver our most successful Midshire Schools’ Coaching Programme to date, a huge growth in our ‘Goalz’ project in Buxton and a fantastic U11 Schools’ Football Tournament which was so successful, the National League Trust went with our proposed idea of a national tournament. Our Stockport County representatives, Queensgate Primary School, narrowly missed out on a place at Wembley after losing in the final to a team representing AFC Telford. Not only have our programmes been successful, but we have also been boosted by superb support from first team squad members, such as Lewis Montrose, George West and the Manager, James Gannon, coming out on to the coaching field within our local community for the Stockport County Community Foundation. On the pitch, we have also had a superb season, with the best defensive record in the league, while the team only lost once in their final twenty-four games. Meanwhile, Edgeley Park broke the record attendance for a game in our division against FC United. Then, we went and broke our own record! The game against Gloucester saw 5,783 fans at Edgeley Park. Incredibly, this attendance beats the best attendance of all but two clubs in the National League. Of course, it goes without saying that Edgeley Park had the best average attendance in the National League North.

On the night, the Community Foundation were presented with our shirt by Lewis Montrose, whose shirt we sponsored for the season (pictured). Lewis was also awarded Player of the Season for the second season running, which is a magnificent achievement.

Community Foundation Manager Dave Wardle and Vice Chair Helen Foster-Grime presented the Community Foundation Recognition Award to the Manager, James Gannon for the fantastic service he has yet again brought to the Community Foundation this season. We were delighted to present this award to James, who has attended our Walking Football sessions, Soccer Schools (performing Q&A with the players), Wildcatz Girls’ Football Club alongside being a key member within our Midshire Schools’ Coaching Programme each week.

The evening had a fantastic turnout, contributed to strongly by the Community Foundation, who had over 23 staff members present, including our Board of Trustees and other supporting partners. This made for a fantastic evening that all our staff members particularly enjoyed.

We look forward to a very busy summer of activities and the beginning of the 2017/18 season.
