Alty And Stockport Are Both Up For Big Cheshire Award

Altrincham have been shortlisted for an award for their fight against homophobia - but face competition from Stockport County!

The National League North club have been nominated as the Cheshire FA pick their grass-roots heroes.

Alty wore special one-off rainbow shirts during their match with Bradford PA last season back in February.

The campaign to finance a major refurbishment of Manchester's LGBT + centre was given a £2,500 boost by their groundbreaking initiative.

They raised cash and awareness - the trademark colours are on display in the National Football Museum.

Now inclusive Alty could receive recognition from the Football Association.

Stockport County, champions of course, have been put forward thanks to their fantastic community efforts.

That is something manager Jim Gannon is proud of as the club pushed on both on and off the pitch last season.

Fans will discover who their sides face first up on July 3 when the fixtures are announced.
