When it wasn't all about money........................
« on: January 26, 2021, 11:03:57 AM »
I thought this piece taken form the Home page was interesting:


"It's been a while since Stockport made their last visit to The Walks. To be precise a mere 108 years, 1 month, and 12 days.
On 14th December 1912 County, a professional Second Division Football League side took on Lynn of the Norfolk & Suffolk League in the fifth qualifying round of the FA Cup.

It was a match that might have been staged at Edgeley Park, Stockport but the Lynn committee declined the offer of 50 plus half of the gate money over 100 to switch the tie".

The supporters are the true voice of football.
