Stockport County have equalled the EFL League Two winning record, after a 12-win streak came to an end on Saturday 25th November.
The Hatters’ 12 league game winning streak came to an end after losing to Newport County, however, they now sit five points clear at the top of League Two just 19 games into the 46-match season. Dave Challinor’s side now share the League Two win record with Luton Town, set back in the 2001/2 season.
Congratulating the club on their achievement, Cllr Frankie Singleton, Cabinet Member for Communities, Culture and Sport at Stockport Council, said:
“It really is a fantastic achievement by everyone involved at the club and has set the team on course for what we all hope will be a season of success.
“There is a real buzz about the club and the town at the moment and long may that continue.”
The club has also announced the launch of ‘Stockport County Armed Forces Football’, which is a new programme of free football sessions for the armed forces community at Reddish Vale High School from 6pm to 7pm on Wednesdays.
Sessions are for players of all ages and abilities and will give participants a chance to socialise with other people from military backgrounds. There will also be the opportunity to represent Stockport County in various fixtures and tournaments.
