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 FC United Of Manchester, York City and Kidderminster Harriers while suffering adverse results at Nuneaton Borough, Harrogate Town and Southport. Draws against Brackley Town, Maidenhead, Maidenhead and Kidderminster Harriers has seen them show mid-table form at best.
