Stockport County 1 Worcester City 0 ( Vanarama National League- North) 29 August 2016

County secured all the points today at Edgeley Park after a tussle with Worcester City that the score line of 1-0 makes look closer than it was. For the second match running County rolled their collective sleeves up and scrapped for the points, and all three was but a fair return for a reasonable afternoon’s toil in the sun. Yes the old current bun blazed away, awakening thoughts of a media blizzard of complaints from the Worcester travelling faithful ( all 26 of them), who were housed in the Railway End-alleging sunstroke and worse- wear a hat I say!   Both teams really did toil for much of the game, looking every inch outfits who had played 2 games in 3 days, but County had a bit more to offer than City, whose work rate only picked up from almost none existent , quite late on, and throughout the Worcester finishing was abysmal.

County came away with a well merited point at New Bucks Head Stadium today, where a battling display saw them held to a 0-0 draw by a lively and combative Telford side. A fair result? Probably, although if two late/ late County strikes had gone in instead of going agonisingly close, it would have been a different story altogether. Having said that though, our hosts, with ex County favourites Gianluca Havern and Micah Evans on board, must have thought that they had done enough to earn a share in the first half which they shaded, if not by a massive margin. For County there was a lot to be happy about….the display of Sam Minihan who, in Duxbury’s continued absence from the starting line up, did a marvellous job of keeping it tight down the left flank.  Minihan....Hurst and an elbow ! And the re-run caught by Andrew Machin..... Duxbury did come on for a late cameo, which turned out to be much more than that, the spring in his step galvanising County in
