Danny Bergara holds a special place in the heart of County fans. “The Man from Uruguay” truly put Stockport County on the footballing map, winning promotion for the first time in twenty four years and leading the team out at Wembley on four separate occasions.
More than twenty-five years after Danny left County, our two supporter groups are confident the time has come to honour our legendary former manager. Stockport County Supporters Co-operative and Help the Hatters would like to commission a life-size bronze statue of Danny, which will take pride of place outside Edgeley Park.
We’re launching a fundraising campaign to cover the cost of the statue and a plinth to ensure Danny’s legacy at our home is not just emotional, but physical too.READ MORE ABOUT DANNY
Anyone who is able to help is asked to contribute to our Just Giving page to raise the money we need - but we’ll also be donating profits from the Hatters Half marathon. The Co-op’s flagship event takes place on Sunday 5th September 2021, for more information visit - www.hattershalf.co.uk.
To start the ball rolling, the Co-op and Help the Hatters have committed to donate £2,000 each.DONATE TO JUST GIVING
The larger the membership of the Co-op, the stronger our collective voice as a fans’ organisation will be. Furthermore, we can continue to work on fantastic projects like the Community Ticket Initiative, build the Guardian Account and fundraise for a tribute to Danny Bergara.
