Stockport County Charity Road Trip

Good morning from a Stockport County fan!

I hope you don’t mind me joining your forum and posting, but I wanted to make you aware of a charity event taking place next month.

On June 25th, myself (‘Sandbach Hatter’) and a chap called Gareth Evans (‘Hatter in Macc’ - who does all of County’s match reports and live tweeting during games), will be embarking on an epic road trip, as we attempt to visit all 22 Conference North grounds from the 2015/16 season, in just one weekend.

We will leave County’s Edgeley Park ground around 8am on the Saturday morning, and hope to return about 9pm the following evening – having travelled just under 1,000 miles in between.

We’re raising funds for a Greater Manchester based children’s cancer charity, Kidscan, and donations can be made via our Just Giving page –

Whilst any donations will be very gratefully received, the main reason for contacting you is that we would like to meet as many fans from other clubs as possible, as we travel around the country. Our itinerary, subject to traffic, is as follows:

Saturday 25th June 2016

Stockport County 08:00
Stalybridge Celtic 08:25
Curzon Ashton 08:45
FC United of Manchester 09:10
Chorley 10:00
AFC Fylde 10:45
Bradford PA 12:15
Harrogate Town 13:15
North Ferriby United 15:00
Gainsborough Trinity 16:00
Alfreton Town 17:20
Boston United 19:15

Sunday 26th June 2016

Lowestoft Town 09:00
Corby Town 11:45
Brackley Town 13:00
Gloucester City 14:30
Worcester City 15:30
Solihull Moors 16:30
Nuneaton Town 17:10
Tamworth 17:45
Hednesford Town 18:15
AFC Telford 19:00
Stockport County 21:00

If you would like to pop along and say hello, I’d love to hear from you, and I can be contacted at Live updates, and more accurate ETAs, will be posted over the weekend via Gareth’s Twitter account: @garethe77815055.

Thanks for reading, and good luck for next season!

Greg Hall (Sandbach Hatter)

An excellent idea for a very worthy cause. I have donated already.

Thank you very much! If you're around and about on the Saturday morning, be sure to say hello!

As a side note, I've contacted all of the clubs in the league, as well as trying to join as many forums as possible to spread the word.

So far, only half of the clubs have responded, but those that have, have been very supportive and agreed to post something on their club's site. I'm pleased to say, Chorley was one of the good ones (Josh at the club has been very helpful)!

Also, this is the first forum (other than County's of course) to actually donate.

Thanks for your support, and good luck for next season (apart from the two matches against us, of course!)

Just over two weeks to go until we set off on our road trip! We would love to meet some fans at every club, so if anyone thinks they may be able to pop along to say 'hi' and have a photo taken with us, please drop me a line to

There's also still time to donate - Any donation will be very gratefully received, and will help us try and reach our target.

Hope to see some of you there!
