Minithon 2011

I am delighted to report of the success of Stockport County Supporters’ Co-operative in the 5.8km ‘Minithon’. We raced (actually you could run, walk or crawl) against participants from Ace Centre North West (Charity) and FC United of Manchester.  Ashley Simpson, Graham Privett, Ian Brown and I did proud raising £650 from the endeavours.

We were admirably supported along the route by Pauline Lawson and Ian Watts. The Event was opportune as two football clubs and their fans co-operated together towards a greater goal of fundraising. Completed, nicely with a trip to Chorlton Irish Club for beverages.

It’s not too late to sponsor me:

The Charity said Thank you for supporting the FC Minithon 2011 and raising funds for Stockport County Supporters’ Co-operative and ACE Centre North.  We were delighted at the turnout on Sunday, and hope that you enjoyed the day as much as we did.  A photograph of you celebrating mission accomplished is attached”.

Co-op Times

Sitting here reflecting on the 3-4 defeat at home to Darlington, with our lowest attendance – means more time to ponder.  My own take on life at E.P is that the 2015 ‘consortium’ has acted somewhat like a ‘life support machine’ but the Club remains in intensive care.  I cannot do much or maybe anything, but having just been elected to a Director at Stockport County Supporters’ Co-operative there might be a role to play.

“Stockport County Supporters Co-operative is part of a wider movement of organisations established by supporters of football clubs now stretching not just across England, or the UK, but also across Europe.”

The Board is considering the adoption of new Society Rules drawn up by Supporters Direct to strengthen its position as a Community Benefit Society. Tomorrow night is the 2011 Annual General Meeting at The Railway Club in Edgeley.  An opportunity to listen to fans, report on progress and ensure a coherent Plan A and Plan B.
