Help the Hatters – The Players Fund
“Time and tide wait for no man” – so the phrase used through history tells us.
So it should be no surprise that our new manager isn’t waiting for the new tide of a new season to bed in new blood.
Since the launch of the players fund firstly during Lordy’s tenure and the recent support provided to Neil Young’s term, Help the Hatters is once again proud by way of representation of all Stockport County Supporters in helping to support our new manager as he begins to put in place the kind of players he hopes will excite us and begin to drive the club up the league placings.
At today’s press conference we were pleased to see where your donations and continued support has been provided with the new signing of Obi Anoruo officially becoming an SCFC player.
It’s evident from the speed in adding to the squad that Jim Gannon believes it necessary to provide a good bedding in period as he begins the construction of putting together the full squad that he believes will see Stockport County climb from League 6 at our earliest opportunity.
Following his first signing Jim himself sent Help the Hatters the following words;
“I am very grateful to all the supporters of the Player's Fund for their commitment and help in rebuilding the team. We want to become increasingly competitive on the pitch and I have seen some positive signs within our current team. However, we would like to start reshaping the team immediately as we look to turn positive performances into wins, which will help build momentum and confidence that next year will be a season of progress and success.
I am very conscious of bringing in the right type of personalities and professionals to continue that process. Key to that success is the type of front players that can provide an exciting dynamic to our forward play. With the current backing of the Players Fund we are looking to add two attackers in the coming week. The first being revealed today is Obi Anoruo, an exciting addition from Gloucester City who was one of the top scorers at this level last season. With his strength, pace and direct running I feel he will provide the type of punch which will make our forward play both more effective and exciting. Thank you again for all your support with my first signing.”
Help the Hatters are aware of the decision to temporarily postpone the Fans Forum and therefore we would also like to provide an early chance for any County fans to a meet the manager session “Live at the Bungalow” on Thursday February 4th. Just his way of saying thanks, so come down for 7pm and have a listen to what Jim has to say, enjoy a drink with your fellow County fans and as it’s Help the Hatters any donations on the night would be warmly appreciated to top back up The Players Fund for us to help with Jims next recruit.
See you on the 4th at The Bungalow,
Chairman Help The Hatters.
