Contact Information:


Stockport County Football Club is an English football club based in Stockport, England. They play in League One, the third tier of the English football pyramid. Their home stadium is Edgeley Park. They are nicknamed The Hatters, although they are usually referred to by supporters simply as County. The Club formed in 1883 as Heaton Norris Rovers, shortly after merging with a similarly named club, Heaton Norris F.C. and on 24 May 1890 changed their name to Stockport County Football Club with reference to the newly formed County Borough of Stockport. They joined the Football League in 1900, and have competed in it continuously since 1905. Having spent most of their history in the lower reaches of the Football League, the 1990s were notably successful, with the club competing in the First Division for five seasons. Instability on and off the pitch led to Stockport quickly tumbling back down the leagues, narrowly avoiding a drop into the Football Conference in 2006. In 2008, the team won promotion via the playoffs back to League One.
