County have confirmed that they have lodged a second bid for Bury striker Ryan Lowe after their initial offer was rejected.

Bury stated earlier that they had rejected a derisory offer from an unnamed club – although everyone at the time knew that club to be us! – and that they would prefer to hold on to 32-year-old Lowe, who had a loan spell at County in 2008.

Since then, SCFC have released a statement confirming their interest in Lowe, and that manager Didi Hamann has lodged a second bid for the forward.

Hamann has also made bids for Accrington midfielder Sean McConville and Halifax striker Jamie Vardy, who struck 24 goals in 13 games last season.

  • think hes good but inst there another younger top striker out there that the hundred grand could go on??

  • I see that things are moving in the right direction. The only thing is what if this Evans guy doesn’t continue his role at Stockport County come 6 weeks time and then leaves, and we have Didi Hamann, a manager on a big contract, Fowler who may come in, and all these £100k signings on high wages. Where does this leave County? That is what I’m worrying about, and how did Evans earn all this money to invest it into County?

  • can you see Evans leaving after investing all this money? I dont think so, and the money they are spending may be the money they are expecting from the Pilkington deal. Does Jim Gannon a get a cut of the money?

  • We’re being linked with all these players, offering high transfer fees – this is what City fans must feel like…

  • Well this is starting to look interesting, Mr Evans seems to be a genuine person and putting his money where his mouth is, I couldn’t stomach another Melrose situation and thankfully that looks to be just a bad memory now.
    I am evan thinking or purchasing the new home shirt for myself and my son and wearing it with pride again, we have a fantastic support/fan base and there are probably another 5 to 10 thousand in the Stockport area that would attand Edgeley Park if we were a champion***** outfit. Please forgive my optimism but I just love SCFC

  • Re above massage… I have no idea as to why the astrix marks appear on my comments “if we were a championship outfit” I can only assume I hit the T key on my computer instead of the P key lol

  • I’m with you Edgeley things are looking good for a change, looking forward to new players, new season and I have not said that for a long time.

  • Simple, bring back Matt Paterson from Southend and watch the lad rip it up. Southend want rid and if we can convice him to spend a year in the Conference then I believe he would get us up first time of asking. His debut v Bury is still one of the best that I can ever remember (hence my username!!)

    County forever

  • Pato – did not realise Southend want to get rid. That would be a statement of intent signing him. Going back to what Taz1 said – surely Evans & Co. will take control in 6 weeks time. They cant just be spending the Pilks money for the buzz before withdrawing….. could they? Nah. Recent events have made me too neurotic ! Come on County! Dare we believe we may be pushing for play-offs or more?

  • Kid Charlemagne (I am old enough to remember Steely Dan!). Paterson has been pushed out at Southend, he is currently about to fly off with Oxford United on their pre-season tour of USA so I believe he will probably join them. However, if we get our bid in fast then what a signing he would be – he was outstanding and a perfect fit at County – I am sure he loved it. GET THE CHEQUE BOOK OUT!!

    God, I am getting really excited about the new season!!

  • Isn’t it a refreshing change to be getting excited about the new season! Just hope all this talk of big signings isn’t just a publicity stunt. Jamie Vardy has been looked at by alot of league clubs. It would seem 50k was never going to be enough to get him. Time will tell!!!
