Jim Gannon has been named as the new manager of Blue Square Bet Premier side Stockport County. Gannon was the odds-on favourite in the betting and will now begin his second stint in charge of the team. He took over from Dietmar Hamann who resigned as Stockport County manager back in November after just four months in charge.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Stockport County collect wins versus Nuneaton Borough, North Ferriby United, Southport and Gainsborough while suffering adverse results at Blyth Spartans, Telford United, York City and Tamworth. Draws against Darlington and Bradford Park Avenue has seen them show mid-table form at best.
