Midweek FA Trophy replay for Hatters

Stockport County drew 2-2 with Southport at Edgeley Park this weekend, with a late Darren Stephenson equaliser securing a Wednesday night replay at Haig Avenue.

An early Bohan Dixon goal was cancelled out almost immediately by Southport’s Andy White in the first half, before a debut goal for former FC United striker Jason Gilchrist put the Sandgrounders ahead in the second half.

The away side could not hold on, however, and substitute Darren Stephenson’s impressive cameo was rewarded with a first County goal when he poked home from Gary Stopforth’s cross in the dying minutes.

Sustained County pressure in the closing seconds of the game was to no avail, with the sides now having to face each other again on Wednesday in the cup replay.

That game, which will take place at Haig Avenue, is pay on the gate for County supporters, who will be housed in either the Blowick End or Main Stand.

Tickets for Hatters fans will cost between £12 & £4, depending on their age and stand of choice.

Address: Haig Avenue, Southport, PR8 6JZ.
