Weʼre raising £50,000 to commission a statue of Danny Bergara

Edgeley Park, Stockport
17 days to go

Don't have time to donate right now?


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.

    The Co-op and Help the Hatters would like to thank everyone who has donated to our appeal so far. It is important to keep the momentum going, so please could we ask our supporters to have a conversation with County supporting family and friends? Ask them to take a look at our dedicated website - and ask whether they can consider helping with a donation? There will be lots of events and initiatives to help support fund raising, but it's important we keep donations coming in from supporters. Many thanks!
