‘I have watched Stockport County home and away for nearly 40 years and last Saturday against Accrington was one of the most enjoyable trips for years, and had nothing to do with the football result.’

‘Me and my pals agreed if we wanted asphalted roads and car parks, to eat prawn sarnies and sip chilled Chablis sitting in the lap of luxury while watching overpaid prima donnas from a perch miles away from the action in an air conditioned environment we would go to Old Trafford or Chelski. What Accrington the town and the football club had wad much more.’

‘In our eyes Accrington epitomises grass roots professional football. They are a team that has hauled its way from total oblivion. Accrington is a town that has a very proud history, especially during WW1, and we feel that we should feel a tidge humble being able to visit their town and their stadium’

‘The ground was safe. You could stand. The locals were friendly. You could get a decent pint beforehand in nice traditional pubs. Even the chips were top notch standard’

‘The Accrington stewards and people generally were friendly, got behind their team and didn’t boo them off at the end.’

‘We really hope Stanley continue to exist and wish them all the very best for the future!’
