Local MP congratulates Stockport County FC on reaching Wembley

Stockport County FC's achievement in getting to Wembley for the League Two playoff final (26th May) has not gone unnoticed in the corridors of power. Cheadle MP, Mark Hunter has tabled an Early Day Motion congratulating County and wishing them all the best in their showdown with Rochdale.

The Motion which pays tribute to the hard work, dedication and sporting behaviour of both teams and their fans, is co-sponsored by a colleague of Mr Hunter's, Paul Rowen, the MP for Rochdale!

Speaking just after submitting the motion, Mr. Hunter said, "I'm absolutely delighted by County's success this season, they really have done brilliantly well and I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for them at Wembley."
