All the latest Co-op and Help The Hatters news from our very own Ian Brown

Supporters Cooperative


Confirmation has been received that Edgeley Park is now listed by the local authority as an Asset of Community Value.

This is terrific news and reward for the hard work of the Supporters Cooperative who ,backed by Supporters Direct, did the biz on behalf of County fans!

Fantastic stuff….congratulations!


The Stockport County Supporters Cooperative AGM has been called for Tuesday 3 rd December at 19.30 in the Insider Suite , Edgeley Park.

As you are aware Help the Hatters are supporting the Cooperative and fielding candidates in the upcoming elections.

To date John Fitzpatrick and John Gaskin are standing as HtH candidates and we would urge all HtH supporters to support and vote for these long standing HtH stalwarts!

If you are mindful of standing yourself , and were a paid up member of the Supporters Cooperative on 31 October 2013 however, then you have until 17.00 on Tuesday 26 November 2013 to submit your nomination forms.

Details are on the Supporters Cooperative web site.


Rocky Horror Graveyard Show

I can report that November 1st saw a party from HtH take in the above mentioned show at the Romiley Theatre.

By all accounts it was an enjoyable evening – another winner from Fitzy!


Vital County

A second donation has been received from Vital covering the Editors payments for the last quarter. We are really grateful to Andy and everyone at Vital for again redirecting these moneys, which accrue from the number of visits to that site that are made. So to earn Help the Hatters money- visit Vital as often as you can…..just visit and the dosh is ours…..simple!

(Well done Vital County readers – please encourage your County supporting brethren to visit the site and generate money for Help The Hatters)



The site whizzed past 40000 page views yesterday, which is superb in just 5 months.

There are now 90 articles on the site varying from News and Views, County History, Miscellany, Help the Hatters Updates and Match Reports of every County match!

There are a few items queuing just now….Part 5 of the County 2004 China Tour will feature Monday of next week… are 2 County History items, from Alan Edwards, awaiting publication along with a tale of violence and mystery involving County and Ibiza.

So do keep visiting the site which is now beginning to accrue income for Help the Hatters, via the on- site advertising.
