On Saturday 25th June 2016, two Stockport County fans will be embarking on an epic road trip, as they endeavour to visit all 22 Conference North grounds from the 2015/16 season, in just one weekend.
Greg Hall (‘Sandbach Hatter’) and Gareth Evans (‘Hatter in Macc’) are founder members of County’s online fans’ forum, ‘County Heaven’, and have already organised sponsored walks to away matches at Macclesfield Town in 2013, and Hyde FC in 2015, both in aid of Greater Manchester-based children’s cancer charity, Kidscan.
They will depart from County’s Edgeley Park ground at 8am on the Saturday morning, and hope to return by 9pm the following evening, a journey which will see them take in most of the country, and travel nearly 1,000 miles!
Greg and Gareth have contacted the club to ask for our support, not only in terms of donations to Kidscan – which can be made via their Just Giving page, www.justgiving.com/bigroadtrip2016 – but also to see if any fans would like to meet them on their travels – and cheer them on!
Subject to traffic, they hope to arrive at Keys Park at around 6.15pm on the Sunday evening, but there will also be live updates throughout the weekend via Twitter – @GarethE77815055.
