STAGS V STOCKPORT PREVIEW
25/December/2002 21:17:01

The Stags and Stockport first met at Field Mill in the old div 3 (N) as far back as in the 1932-33 season when a game on March 25, 1933, ended in a 2-1 victory for Stockport, the first of only five Stockport wins at Field Mill, three of which came in the first six encounters between the teams. An interesting fact is that the teams drew 1-1 at Field Mill on January 13, 1934 and that was one week after Stockport's record league victory, 13-0 against Halifax, and that was the first Stags home point gained against the Hatters!

Tucked in between was the last game of the 1962-63 season that clinched the Mighty Stags' first promotion with the help of a 1-1-draw at the expense of Gillingham – and Stockport also smashed the Stags unbeaten start record of 10 games by winning 1-0 on September 29, 1962. The biggest Stags home win was a 5-0 in a 4th division game on October 22, 1973 thanks to three goals from Terry Eccles, one apiece from Dennis Longhorn and Dudley Roberts, attendance 3443, the sixth of seven consecutive home wins at the start of the 1973-74 season. The latest game ended in a 2-0 win for the Stags on October 10, 1992 thanks to goals from Alan Walker and Steve Wilkinson, attendance 3836, and Mansfield also were the ONLY team to win away at Stockport that season thanks to an Ian Stringfellow goal in front of 5307 on February 26, 1993. The clubs have met twice on opening days: On August 18, 1951 at Field Mill when the Stags won 1-0 and then five years later exactly to the day at Stockport, when the home team won 2-1. Earlier this season Stockport were very lucky to beat the Stags 2-0.

Played for both sides: Martin Pemberton, Brian McCord (for Stags on loan prior to playing for Stockport, played for Barnsley before being loaned to the Stags), Steve Uzelac (for Stags on loan from Doncaster), Les Robinson (to Stockport from Stags in 1986-87), Glynn Hurst (for Stags on loan from Barnsley in 1996-97).

Yet two more players who've played for our latest opponent Barnsley – Brian McCord and Glynn Hurst.
