Flynn Takes Temporary County Helm

Mike Flynn will take charge of Stockport County this weekend as....

....the Hatters take on Vanarama National League North high-flyers Nuneaton Town at Edgeley Park.

Meanwhile, the Board of Directors is working towards appointing a permanent new manager.

Director Richard Park said: "We are very grateful to Mike for agreeing to step up to the plate this weekend in difficult circumstances.

“Mike knows the players well, so we feel we are in very safe hands before we make our permanent appointment, and we think the atmosphere could be a bit special this Saturday with a club legend at the helm, and that could make a huge difference. Mike is County through and through, so we know the team will be thoroughly prepared. We also thank the supporters for their patience, and we intend to make a permanent announcement shortly as we look to get this season back on track."

County legend Mike Flynn has been working as a first-team coach under Neil Young, having originally returned to Edgeley Park in a scouting capacity.

The former County skipper spent ten years as a player at Edgeley Park, making 460 appearances, reaching the League Cup semi-final and winning promotion to Division One, making him the most successful captain in the club's history.

He was named a Life President of the club in 2014.
