With the S’PORT continuing its amazing start to the Season perched on the ‘Top Rung’ of the National Volleyball League (NVL) table, our Chairman recognised the generosity of sponsors to date and outlined future plans for which another partner is sought. Arguably after Stockport Metro with things looking bleak at Stockport County and Sale Sharks having left the Borough, it is Stockport Volleyball Club that carries the flag for our Town and its pride in sport. Please watch the match versus Nottingham, listen to the Chairman’s message and do get in touch if you know anyone that can take the S’PORT on its next stage of progress. Contact: email@example.com
Shaw Lane Association gives the usual excitement, as a so called minnow enters the first round of the FA Cup proper. A former pub team, part financed by a local plumbing business, are currently third in the Evo-Stik Premier Division, and defeated Conference side Barrow in the last Round. The result, a home tie is granted, against Mansfield Town – a fixture relatively local that they will be delighted by.

Just caught my attention with the usual quip from our former striker, about Stoke City FC being likened to a pub team.
Stockport Volleyball Club, our namesake, the S’PORT, has just completed its first National Volleyball League matches. Something for Stockport to be rightly proud of and something to cheer up us County fans!
What the papers said:
“It was an action-packed weekend with nine games taking place and showed that with new teams, returning teams, and last year’s form teams the league could be one of the most intriguing in the NVL. In a triangle of matches, Newcastle Staffs 2, Hull Thunder, and Stockport Volleyball Club all faced off. Stockport claim two victories, both by a 3-1 scoreline, to shoot to second in the league. It capped a memorable day as Stockport were playing their first ever NVL fixtures. They will be confident of matching anybody in the division and enjoying a strong first season.”
Come on the S’PORT 🖐🏐🖐
#WeStandTogether is a hashtag synonymous with remembering the atrocities at the Manchester Arena. This same symbolism is illustrated with the Manchester Bee icon on our first team playing shirts at Manchester Rugby via ACROBAT | FCSM’s sponsorship and this new funding regime. A community fund has been created to support local communities affected by the Manchester attack on 22nd May 2017. The Fund will assist local groups and organisations to host events and manage initiatives to counter hate and emerging unrest and should look to promote cohesion within communities.
The Club has embraced this Initiative and is delighted to announce through liaison with THE GREATER MANCHESTER HIGH SHERIFF’S POLICE TRUST, it has been granted funding to our Minis and Juniors Section, to allow a dedicated inter-faith day. This, whereby we build on our already tried and tested philosophy of bringing communities together across Greater Manchester and illustrate the many benefits to enjoying the beautiful game which is rugby. More details will be announced shortly. But people interested in knowing more and being registered for this initiative can email Adrian Stores at firstname.lastname@example.org in the meantime.
