Stockport County Looking at 3 Reinforcements Ahead Of National League Football

At the end of the 2012/13 season, things weren’t looking great for Stockport as they were relegated to the Conference North League. Skip to 2019 and they will be back playing National League football next season. 

With this being said, the Hatters are possibly going to be needing a few fresh legs on the team in order to remain playing in the league they’ve just been promoted to.

There are only rumours at this point but it’s getting fans talking…

Sean Newton

It was a Twitter source that leaked a possible move for Newton. The current York City centre back May have caught Stockport’s eye again. The 30-year-old was on loan with the Hatters in 2012 where he made 43 appearances in the 2012/13 season when the defender then signed for Lincoln in 2013. He’s been with Notts County and Wrexham since and most recently joined York in 2017. He managed 17 goals in 90 appearances for the club. 

Jamie Stott

Once again, Stockport are looking to put a bid in for Stott after he spent a loan period with the Hatters last season. The defender is currently at Oldham Athletic, although he has been on loan to different clubs since 2016. It’s looking like Stockport were impressed by his efforts and would like him to help with their National League campaign.

James Ball

Finally, the 23-year-old midfielder is rumoured to be released from his contract at Stevenage FC. It may be so that he can sign for the Hatters ahead of their new season. Ball started his career with Bolton before signing for Northwich Victoria, and then he signed for Stockport. He had a good run, made 74 appearances and bagged 14 goals. He spent last year with Stevenage but only managed 18 appearances suggesting that the midfielder could be looking to return to Stockport.
