HISTORY

Stockport Town Football Club began life back in February 2014 and developed a first-team squad in preparation for the 2014/15 season. The club, lead by manager, Calum Sykes, proceeded through a campaign of friendly fixtures and the club's first ever non-competitive match came against Stalybridge Celtic on 12th July 2014, and despite losing 5-0 at Stockport Sports Village, the club had begun its journey.

The club, nicknamed The Lions, competed throughout the 2014/15 season against first teams and reserve teams from many different clubs including; FC United of Manchester, Ramsbottom United, Fleetwood Town U21's and Norwegian outfit, Rolvsøy IF.

The Lions endured a successful first-ever campaign competing in 35 fixtures home and away ending with statistics of Won: 17, Draw: 8, Lost: 10. The club also completed a 13-match unbeaten run in the middle of the campaign between 13th July - 13th October, including 9 victories.

In May 2015 the club was accepted into Step 6 of the Non-League Pyramid and joined the North West Counties Football League - Division One. The club's first ever competitive fixture came on Saturday 8th August 2015 away at Hanley Town, a match in which Stockport were victorious 3-2, and in doing so recorded their first ever competitve win.
