Story

Danny Bergara holds a special place in the hearts of County fans. The "Man from Uruguay" truely put Stockport County on the footballing map, winning promotion for the first time in twenty four years and leading the team out at Wembley on four separate occasions.

More than twenty five years after Danny left County, our two supporters groups believe the time has come to honour our legendary former manager. Stockport County Supporters Co-operative and Help the Hatters would like to commission a life size bronze statue of Danny, which will take pride of place outside Edgeley Park.

We are launching a fundraising campaign to cover the cost of the statue and a plinth to ensure that Danny's legacy at our home isn't just emotional, but physical too.

A target of £50,000 has been set, so please give generously to support this very worthy project.
