We are once again delighted and excited to have such great support and involvement from our Stockport County Playing and Management squad for the Primary School academic year ahead. We have been very keen to develop and increase the number of County players working in the Community Foundation on the many different programmes we are delivering each week. This has been extremely beneficial in creating a special bond and more personable relationship with the local community and fans of the club keeping them in touching distance with the Clubs Manager and players.

We are very proud to have a number of players working alongside our Sports Coaches each week delivering the many different activities throughout Stockport and Tameside. Our team of Sports Coaches working alongside the Manager and Players provides a great opportunity for the children to learn not just technical skills during the lessons but also help build upon life skills such as confidence, self esteem, sharing, respect and teamwork as well as developing long lasting friendships.

A great example of this is Sam Minihan. Sam works on the Schools Coaching Programme each week offering children and teaching staff a fantastic enjoyable, professional experience. The benefits of having the manager and players working in the community are clearly visible with great feedback from children, staff and other members of the Community Foundation.

Sam commented: 'My overall experiences as a Player/Coach for Stockport County’s Community Foundation have allowed me to meet people from all areas of the community and really see the true love and emotion people have for this club. This in turn drives me to make the club successful so initiative’s such as the Foundation can continue to grow and carry out the outstanding work they do for all areas of the community. The Foundation is also quite unique in the way that it possesses players as coaches too. Speaking from a player’s point of view you can unquestionably see the difference it makes having someone who plays for the club they support or know of coaching their sessions. I have managed to engage thousands of children and hopefully inspire these individuals into making good decisions, staying active and becoming lifelong learners.

The important role and impact that our players and manager alongside our sports coaches is making an extremely important and powerful difference to what we see as the next generation of Stockport County fans'.
