Our game at Stockport County on Monday will be a special occasion for chairman Bob Paton.
Growing up as a Stockport County fan, Bob never imagined he would one day get the chance to sit in the Edgeley Park directors’ box.
“Stockport County is part of my life,” said Bob, who was born at Stepping Hill hospital and was brought up in Hillgate.
“I supported County since I was a kid. My grandad was a Stockport County and so was my father. When County scored you could hear the roar all over Stockport.
“In all my dreams I never thought I would be going back to Stockport to play against them when my dream as a kid was to be running the club.”
Danny Meadowcroft and Tom Smyth are both nursing painful knocks following Saturday’s home draw against Guiseley but are expected to be fit and John McKenna should also be available again after an ankle injury.
