Join us at Edgeley Park for a celebration as we remember one of Stockport County’s greatest ever achievements in the modern era. 25 years have passed since the Hatters were promoted to Division One thanks to the fantastic work of the 1996-97 team.

As a result, we’re inviting back players from the team, iconic members of the club and those who supported the club both then and now. If you’re a fan of Stockport County, then this is the perfect opportunity to be a part of Hatters history.

The Team

The 1996–97 season is undoubtedly the most memorable and successful in Stockport County’s illustrious history, achieving promotion to what is now the Championship and famously reaching the semi-finals of the League Cup, knocking out Premier League opposition in Blackburn Rovers, West Ham and Southampton. That team contained some iconic players for the Club, such as Luis Cavaco, Sean Connelly, Lee Todd, Andy Mutch, Tom Bennett, Tony Dinning and Mike Flynn – all of whom will be making an appearance on the day, alongside our former chairman, Brendan Elwood.
