Stockport County: Club Profile
Us defeating Stockport County in the 2003-4 FA Cup was put down as a bone fide upset. But now it’d be quite the reverse; the Hatters giving up their place in the Football League for the first time since 1906 thanks to a dismal 2010-1 campaign. And things wouldn’t get much better either. In 2013, they tumbled down one more level; relegation to Conference North a new low for the club. It took them until 2019 to return from the regional division.
And they were looking good for a place in the 2019-20 playoffs too. That was until Covid-19 ended the season early – and PPG sent Barnet above them into the top seven.

It sounds as if the small Labour Club by the entrance to the Railway End might let you in for a small fee. But, if you prefer something more like your usual pub, The Armoury can be found at the top of Castle Street and is said to be good for away fans.
Stockport County Travel Information – Distance: 177 miles
Stockport is on the southern side of Manchester, so the best route would be to head north on the M1 and M6. Continue until the exit for the A556, turning onto the Manchester/M56-bound carriageway. After more than four miles, take the third exit at the roundabout and continue towards the M56. In another half a mile, join the M56.
Next, join the M60 – before exiting at Junction 2 for Cheadle/A560. Continue towards the roundabout and take the second exit for the A560 towards the town centre. Go right after half a mile at Edgeley Road, before a quick left keeps you on the same road (B5465). After a mile, there will be a right turn for Caroline Street; the ground is down here.
You can’t park at the stadium itself. So, you might want to try one of the many Pay and Display car parks nearby. If you want a complete list, the local council website can help with this. And you’ll find plenty within no more than 10 minutes’ walk from the ground.
A lot of the streets around Edgeley Park have resident schemes in place, which means bad news for you should Council Civil Enforcement Officers catch you. We reckon that your best bet is to simply avoid parking on local side streets to be on the safe side.

Go north on Station Road from Stockport’s railway station, before a sharp right to stay on that same road. At Railway Road, turn left for about 100 yards; turning right for Wellington Road soon after. Turn right onto Greek Street and continue to the roundabout.
At the roundabout, take the third exit (think of it as if you were driving). You should now be in Mercian Way. After 0.3 miles, turn left into Caroline Street, before arriving on Hardcastle Road. If you can’t see the ground from here, you’ve gone wrong somewhere.
