The pre-season for Stockport County is going impressively well for the team of Alan Lord as they have already managed on signing a few players to reinforce certain aspects of the squad as well as gaining a number of victories prior to the start of the upcoming campaign.
Stockport County initiated their pre-season campaign by picking up a 1-0 victory against Northwich Victoria with their new signing Chris Sharp being the player that scored the only goal of the entire match.
4 days later and Stockport County played locked horns with Nantwich with neither teams being able to score a single goal but the head coach of Stockport County admitted that it was a great result for his players and his team.
Lord said: “They got a bit fitter and I think we looked very solid; we don’t look like people can penetrate us and they tried going for the throat, they tried down the outside and they didn’t get anywhere. All round it was an exercise in getting players fitter, preparing for the next game, looking at strategies and systems and whether we need to change them or not.
The pre-season continued on for Alan Lord and his players by playing against the team of Stockport County of 1996-97. The current day squad of Alan Lord claimed a 6-0 victory against some of the best players of the team of some years ago.
With all of these positive victories, the head coach of Stockport County Alan Lord is optimistic about the next season and the squad has been reinforced further by signing Danny Hurst and Scott Spencer.
Spencer is a 25 year old forward who has experience playing in a number of different clubs which includes: Everton, Lincoln City and Rochdale while Danny Hurst has experience of his own after performing with Southport and Fleetwood Town.
