Stockport County secure ground
Stockport County's Edgeley Park ground has been purchased by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council which will now act as the club's landlord. Previous owners Cheshire Sports Promotions have agreed a £2m deal with the council.
Cheshire Sports have owned the ground since 2003 when Stockport County was sold to Brian Kennesy, owner of the rugby union side Sale Sharks. In 2010 the club was taken over by a consortium and in 2012 Salle Sharks moved out of Edgeley Park.
