The Hatters’ recent match against Chorley may have been a source of frustration for many County fans, with The Magpies just about clinging on to a point as they left Edgeley Park that day. But for Tom and Daniel, the guys behind the Two Men In Search Of The Beautiful Game blog, it was a chance to experience another lower-league atmosphere as neutrals, as they travel up and down the country.
“Jim Gannons blue white army” sing the fans, to the rhythm of a drum behind us. He changes beat and with it so does the song “Edgeley, Edgeley, we’re the famous Stockport County and we come from Edgeley”, once again he changes and the fans around us, lots of them kids, fall almost into a hypnotic trance, “blue army, blue army” they repeat, over and over.
The two provide a funny, insightful and refreshing view of what it’s like to come to Edgeley Park as a neutral football fan. You can catch their blog about the day by clicking here. Or take a look at their video of the day below.
