County welcome Worcester City to Edgeley Park this Saturday at 3pm for the latest in our Skrill North campaign (nightmare).

City, or ‘The Dragons’ or simply ‘the Blues’ should turn out in their away kit of red and black stripes and now play at Kidderminster Harriers ground after leaving their St. Georges Lane ground at the end of last season.

From the Worcester City Wikipedia article

‘Their ground is to be developed by a housing developer’. I will say no more on that.

‘The sale of the Ground was aimed at helping to fund the building of a new 6,000-capacity ground to be built at Nunnery Way on the edge of Worcester, although due to poor negotiating by the incumbent board of directors, the sale of the ground failed to provide sufficient finances to pay for such a stadium.’

I will say no more on that either other than to wish their football club the very best of luck.

So what of City on the pitch?

Well, as we almost reach the quarter way mark of the season, City are in 16th place with just one win from their 10 games and 5 draws and 4 defeats.

Recent form is quite good though, unbeaten in 5 including a 0-0 draw away at Telford United and they have a player with one of the best names in non-league football. Central defender Exodus Geohaghon.

Worcester City official site here if you are interested.


My prediction given County’s rather lacklustre form is that the match will be played under bright and dry conditions and 2,180 will witness a 0-0 draw.


Come on County – surprise and delight us for once!

A final word on the efforts of the Stockport County Co-op to drive up membership – particularly signing up those members who don’t spend much or any time online.

County fans willing to help are assembling at The Armoury (top of Greek Street on the roundabout) before the game at 1:30

I believe striking Hi-Vis jackets will be available, together with membership forums etc.

If you can help please mail russcjohnson@hotmail.com so numbers can be gauged or just simply turn up and get stuck in. The future of the club may be at stake and the Co-op is the vehicle where County fans can make a difference
