Stockport County fan visit - Caley Thistle vs Arbroath


Recommended Posts

Hello!

My name's Gareth and I'm a 32 year old Stockport County fan. 

I'm doing 8 days in Scotland for my partner's 30th birthday celebrations. We're stopping off in various places on the way, but basically heading up to Isle of Skye from Glasgow and then looping back down to Edinburgh. We're staying one night in Inverness on Tuesday 26th October and as luck has it you guys have a match. 

My missus will be having a quiet night in with our 10 month old lad, but I've got a footy mad 5 year old daughter who's joining me for the match. I regularly do home and away games following County, so I couldn't pass on the opportunity to take in some football on our trip.

I guess I just wanted to say hello and try to make the most of the night for my daughter. Could anyone recommend where to sit or offer any advice? Does the club offer any quick tours on anything along those lines? I've been taking my daughter to the football for around 3 years, so she's well used to a match day by now and loves an atmosphere.

Doing my research on County/Caley connections, I see James Vincent and Greg Tansey had some good spells with you. I found myself watching Vincent's cup final goal and then listening to his interview on The Wyness Shuffle podcast last night! Both lads came through our youth system and were pretty much thrown in the deep end during our turbulent, administration years. We've even had Jason Oswell and Owain Fôn Williams too. For context, County got to the dizzy heights of the old Divison One (now Championship), but had a rapid decline that led to us falling to part-time regional football in the National North. We're now in the National League pushing for promotion back to the Football League.

We're looking forward to our visit!

Afaik there's nothing officially advertised. But nearly every day outside match day is mostly quiet, so turning up and asking will usually get you a behind the scenes view, but I would reccomend phoning up as I'm not overly sure if this has changed lately.

As for where to sit, if you're wanting atmosphere, the North Stand is the way to go, the Main Stand doesn't provide a whole lot unless you want to see the sunset over the Beauly Firth towards the end of the game.

As Jack says, 'phone the club and I am sure someone will be happy to show you around.

Even this Main Stand sweetie rustler agrees that the North Stand is probably the best place to be.

Hooefully you will witness a good game and a home win.

Probably just refer to Stockport as C(o)unty is a bit of a dirty word around here 😂

I'm in the North Stand with my daughter and it can get pretty rowdy like but I'll keep my swearing to a minimum 👍😄
