CLUB ANNOUNCEMENT

Posted on: Mon 05 Jan 2009

 

Stockport County's success this season, under the guidance of Jim Gannon and his group of elite young players, building on the remarkable achievements of the past two years, have inevitably led to much speculation about the future.

 

However, the club wishes to make clear that the reality remains the same. The recent success has been built upon the development of young players who will, inevitably, attract interest from clubs at a higher level.

 

And if serious offers are made, which are in the best interests of the player and the club, then these offers will be accepted; like any other club we have to balance our ambition with the financial reality of our existence.

 

Likewise, Jim Gannon's three-year managerial record, which has seen him take the club from the brink of relegation to the Conference to seventh place in League 1, will also, inevitably, attract interest from higher-placed clubs. If an opportunity arises for Jim to manage at a higher level then we are duty bound to help him achieve his deserved rewards.

 

We would also like to confirm, though, that no enquiries for Jim or any of his players have been made.

 

County Chairman, Martin Reid, said: "Jim deserves the compliment of being associated with available jobs in the Championship and, as a club, Stockport County would support him wholeheartedly in securing a move which his achievements merit.

 

"However, Jim remains County manager. He is fully committed and has a comprehensive plan to remain competitive in League 1and help take the club forward in these challenging financial times."

Stockport Won't Stand In Gannon's Seaside Path

EA Sports

Stockport County's Chief Executive Mark Maguire has today said that the club won't stand in manager Jim Gannon's way if he wants to join Blackpool.

 

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News Maguire said 'Jim has an incredible record as a manager and I have spoken to Jim and made it clear that if he wants to further himself we will understand.'

 

'We all respect what he has achieved here, but if a club with a structure and finances that meet his ambitions comes in he will go with our blessing.'

 

The 40 year-old has been manager at Edgeley Park for three seasons, and in that time has spared The Hatters from relegation to the Conference, whilst last season leading his team to Playoff glory at Wembley.

 

In remarkable parallels to 'Pool's recently departed manager Simon Grayson, Gannon holds the County club record for consecutive wins - which stands at nine. Not only this, but the team didn't conceed a goal in that period, so hold the Football League record for consecutive clean sheets as well.

 

It is rumoured that the Stockport gaffer is on a shortlist of five at Bloomfield Road to replace Larry, but whether Blackpool have the structure and finances to meet Gannon's ambition is another question, with the stadium half built and training ground a mess.

 

His team currently sit 7th in League One, having defied all odds this season - keeping the pace with fellow promoted clubs MK Dons and Peterborough, and Gannon has also been linked with the vacant managerial post at Derby County.

Stockport are owned by their trust and they cannot put any money into the club, if they dont find some decent owners they will go in to administation, the problem being the trust are refusing to sell. Every county player is on the transfer list.

Derby have announced a shortlist of four - Chris Hutchings, Darren Ferguson, Dean Saunders and Nigel Clough.

 

Scraping through against Forest Green will hardly impress the PP crowd, and Hutchings' next task is negotiating beating United in the CC.

 

Dean Saunders has said he won't leave Wrexham.

 

So that leaves Mini Fergie and Mini Clough. Do the BALLS lot think Clough would go with promotion to the League in his grasp? Would rather Wifebeater goes and takes Boyd, McLean and CMS with him...
