Jim Gannon will take his squad to Hednesford Town on Saturday 14th July for a pre-season friendly.
The friendly is part of the Ashley Williams deal, with County agreeing to play against Hednesford in a friendly when we first bought him.
It now looks like County will NOT be visiting Ireland for a friendly.
14/07/97 15:00 – Hednesford Town V Stockport County
21/07/07 15:00 – Stockport County V Hull City
28/07/07 15:00 – Stockport County V Cardiff City
31/07/07 19:45 – Worcester City V Stockport County
01/08/07 19:30 – Woodley Sports V Stockport County
04/08/07 15:00 – Crewe Alexandra V Stockport County
Ticket prices have also been announced for the pre-season games and the first round of the Carling Cup against Tranmere.
For the pre-season games, prices are £10 for adults, £7 for concessions and £5 for juniors. However, if your a season ticket holder you get a two pound reduction on your ticket prices.
Prices for the Carling Cup game against Tranmere on the 14th August are £10 for adults, £7 for concessions and £5 for juniors for everybody.
I think that the club are being generous in the Carling Cup, though the friendlies are slightly expensive at £10 for adults. Most fans need an incentive to visit a friendly, and with other things to do in the heat of July it will be unlucky we will be pulling in large crowds at £10 for a glorified training session.
However, the Carling Cup prices are good and hopefully we will see a normal crowd for a winnable tie against local rivals Tranmere Rovers.
