Attendance at Stockport County has set a new record for the Conference North League, with 5630 people visiting Edgeley Park for the visit of neighbours FC United of Manchester.
The crowd beats the previous record which was set by Worcester City when they bid an emotional farewell to their home ground, and also tops the actual highest attendance, which was for the play-offs and not a standard league game.
Saturday 18th February saw more visitors to County than to all but one of the Football League 2 games, three Football League 1 games, with almost twice as many visiting Edgeley Park than Rochdale’s Crown Oils Stadium, formerly Spotland. Who would have though that it would even have topped Championship Burton Albion versus Norwich City, but it did.
Stockport County Commercial Manager Simon Dawson commented, “County has a proud history and many records. This latest adds to the feeling within the club that we are heading in the right direction and it’s fan base feels the same way. Now is a good time to be involved with us.”
County have back to back home fixtures coming soon, with Saturday 4th March against Chorley FC and Saturday 11th March against Curzon Ashton FC. In a five week period they play five of the teams around them and this could set the tone for the rest of the season. Your support would be much appreciated.
