Stockport County are widely regarded as having some of the Countries most loyal, vocal and fantastic fans, they always give the players and manager their full backing regardless of how the team is performing, they must be the only team in the north and possibly the south to take 800+ fans to Barnet, and completely sell out tickets at both Macclesfield Town and Accrington Stanley and now they are finally getting a reward for all of their hard work, they have been commented on by a number of players/managers, Jim Gannon, Dominic Blizzard, Martin Allen, Aidy Boothroyd, Mark Robinson, John Ruddy to name a few and also having dealt with the heartbreak of relegation, the tension of last day survival and now the eurphoric feeling of promotion for the first time in a long time.

>HERE IS A VIEW ABOUT OUR FANS FROM A HEREFORD UTD FAN – Stockport were excellent against us yesterday and thoroughly deserved to win. The vocal support from your 513 fans was fantastic right through the game. Walsall brought double that but never made the noise that your fans made. Taylor is a good player in midfield, however you get the impression that if he stopped admiring his passes he would be even better – that’s what he needs to learn. Make the pass and get involved again. I was talking to a few stockport fans in the exchange before the match and i did say to them that you would win 2-0. At least we beat them at pool 2-0! Well done. You’ll definitely be in the play offs, will you go up in the lottery?

Well deserved result for County aided by superb support,probably the noisiest we’ve had all season & as far as i’m aware a credit to your club.
Hope that makes amends for our smash & grab on day 1 of the season.
Best of luck for the rest of the season & probably the play offs.

your supporters were superb and the loudest we’ve had at our place so far, louder than Walsall and Bristol Roverswho brought more than you so well done.

Good luck for the rest of the season, hope you make the top three, from the teams i’ve seen so far you should do it.

HERE IS STEPHEN GLEESON’S VIEW ON THE 12TH MAN – By this time the Blue & White Army’s victory anthems were ringing around the old stadium but there was still time for one very, very special moment.

‘One Stephen Gleeson, There’s Only One Stephen Gleeson, began to echo out of the packed away end.

And, on the final whistle the young Irishman went straight over to the magnificent travelling fans to show his appreciation.

The 18-year-old was moved to tears by the ovation, which he later admitted, would remain with him for the rest of his life.

Stephen Gleeson has revealed he will be “a County fan for life” after making an emotional farewell to the club after the game at Hereford on Saturday.

Gleeson told stockportcounty.com: “The County fans are great. Since the day I came here they’ve been great to me

“To score twice at the Cheadle End was brilliant, something I’ll never forget and I’ll be a County fan for life now.

“I wasn’t expecting that kind of send off to be honest and it’s something that I’ll never forget.

“I’ve got some terrific experience here and playing in the FA Cup with County was unbelievable.

“I think County can definitely get into the top three because they can win most of their home games from now until the end of the season.

“We’ve got a good run going away from home as well with us picking up quite a lot of points.”

ANTHONY ELDING’S THOUGHTS ON COUNTY FANS – Speaking exclusively to stockportcounty.com the former Boston hitman said: “The fans sang my name in my second game and it’s an honour.

“I’ve never played in front of fans like this before. They are fantastic

“When the fans are singing like they do it gives you a lift because they are like a 12th man.

“It gives you bumps on the back of your neck and it makes you want to do well for them and you don’t want to disappoint them.

“If we can keep doing what we’re doing then I’m sure this club is going places and for me to be part of something like this is special.”

DANNY BERGARA R.I.P – COUNTY THANK FANS – Stockport County would like to offer sincere thanks to all their supporters who turned Danny Bergara Day into a memorable Edgeley Park experience.

A huge round of applause greeted the club’s staff when they lined up in front of the Main Stand at 2.50pm.

Then you could hear a pin drop in the stands when Frank Sinatra’s My Way, one of Danny’s favourite songs, was played over the tannoy.

That all changed, though, at the end of the record as Danny Bergara’s Blue & White Army echoed around the ground.
However, silence followed when Jim Gannon and Dave Jones made their way through the Guard of Honour provided by the County and Cardiff players carrying a beautiful bouquet of blue & white flowers that spelled out DANNY.

Behind Dave and Jim came Chairman Norman Beverley and Managing Director Mark Maguire who accompanied two of Danny’s Grandsons, Daniel, 8, and James, 5.

Both boys were wearing Uruguay shirts.

Once the wreath had been laid in the Cheadle End goalmouth the referee’s whistle signalled the second, thunderous rendition of Danny Bergara’s Blue & White Army that, just like Wembley in 1993, went on, and on, and on.

The club would also like to thank all the Cardiff City fans who showed total respect of the occasion, even joining in the singing and clapping.

Thanks again, though, to the Blue & White Army – you were magnificent.

MARK ROBINSON ON THE COUNTY FANS – Robbo thinks the Blue & White Army is the best anywhere

The ink had barely dried on his contract following his midweek switch to Torquay United when Mark Robinson saluted the Blue & White Army.

Speaking exclusively to stockportcounty.com the popular defender said: “The fans are absolutely brilliant and you don’t get support at many places like you do at County.”

Robbo also admitted scoring his first senior goal, in our 3-3 draw at Cheltenham last season was a massive moment but he also revealed that his goal in our penultimate home game against Shrewsbury fulfilled a personal ambition.

“Scoring my first goal at Cheltenham was a massive relief to get that off my shoulders. It was the weekend after the birth of my child so I remember the celebrations as well.

“But it was a big, big thing to score in the Chealde End. It was a massive thing for me to score in front of the Cheadle End because the fans were absolutely brilliant to me.

“The fans are absolutely brilliant at County and I can’t thank them enough.”

JOHN RUDDY THANKS COUNTY FANS – John Ruddy has now returned to Everton but not before thanking the County fans for the tremendous backing he received during his time at Edgeley Park.

The goalkeeper told stockportcounty.com: “I’d like to thank all the County fans for getting right behind me.

“The support was fantastic at every game and it’s a credit to the club that they are there week in week out.

“The support is unbelievable here, I couldn’t believe it.

“We had 6,500 on Saturday which is the biggest crowd I’ve played in front of in this division.

“You only have to look at Chester where we had more away fans than the home fans. It’s phenomenal.

“They never shut up through the match to be fair to them. It gives the team a real boost as well.

“With these fans you feel like you can go out and win every game.

“It just makes the atmosphere fantastic and the confidence has been sky high because of that.”
