Official Review by David Moulson, Stadium Journey Special Correspondent
Stockport County have played at Edgeley Park for over 110 years. This is a stadium in the lower leagues that is definitely worth a visit. Originally build as a rugby ground it is very fitting that it was also the home to the Sale Sharks Rugby Club until 2012 when they moved to Salford. It is an all seater stadium.
The FANFARE scale is our metric device for rating each stadium experience. It covers the following:
Each area is rated from 0 to 5 stars with 5 being the best. The overall composite score is the "FANFARE Score".
The prices for food and drink are a bit expensive at Edgeley Park. A drink and a hot dog or pie will cost you £5. The drinks themselves are £2 a bottle. Other food includes pies, mash and gravy again priced at £5. There is also crisps, sweets and chocolate. Alcoholic beverages are fairly priced at £3.20 a pint or £3.50 for Guinness.
Stockport do pride themselves in excellent in excellent support and it is easy to see why the stadium was bouncing throughout the game. The whole of the home fans sing along to Jimmy Gannon's blue and white army, and bring a tingle to any neutral fan at Edgeley Park. Even when getting beat, the Stockport faithful continue to chant, creating and fantastic atmosphere. The thing that lacked was the away team chanting. It's always good to have some banter between fans, and I witnessed none during my recent visit.
Stockport is located in the North of England neighboring Manchester. Stockport's stadium is located 10 minutes from the town centre and five minutes from the train station. Edgeley itself has a lovely little village shopping area with numerous food outlets and also some of your typical shops.
The average attendance has declined of late with 4,000 people at the average home game. The fans themselves do their team proud. There is only a handful of fans not in replica shirts of jackets. They chant from whistle to whistle and have been voted as having the most chants in the English game.
Situated off the M56 near the Pyramid building in Stockport, the ground is easily accessed. As previously mentioned, the ground is a 10 minute walk from the Town Centre and 5 minute walk from Stockport train station. It is also a half an hour bus ride from Wythenshawe town and also Manchester Airport for any overseas fans who do venture to the ground.
Admission is reasonable. Full price is £18 a ticket. 16-21 years of age you can get in for £11 pounds. Children are just £3 and anyone under the age of 7 can go in for free.
Stockport have a small club shop that houses replica shirts, tracksuits and all other things merchandised with the club crest which can be bought. Their award winning match day programme is also £3 and definitely worth a read.
