Stockport Won't Stand In Gannon's Seaside Path

Stockport Won't Stand In Gannon's Seaside Path

Stockport County's Chief Executive Mark Maguire has today said that the club won't stand in manager Jim Gannon's way if he wants to join Blackpool.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News Maguire said 'Jim has an incredible record as a manager and I have spoken to Jim and made it clear that if he wants to further himself we will understand.'

'We all respect what he has achieved here, but if a club with a structure and finances that meet his ambitions comes in he will go with our blessing.'


The 40 year-old has been manager at Edgeley Park for three seasons, and in that time has spared The Hatters from relegation to the Conference, whilst last season leading his team to Playoff glory at Wembley.

In remarkable parallels to 'Pool's recently departed manager Simon Grayson, Gannon holds the County club record for consecutive wins - which stands at nine. Not only this, but the team didn't conceed a goal in that period, so hold the Football League record for consecutive clean sheets as well.

It is rumoured that the Stockport gaffer is on a shortlist of five at Bloomfield Road to replace Larry, but whether Blackpool have the structure and finances to meet Gannon's ambition is another question, with the stadium half built and training ground a mess.

His team currently sit 7th in League One, having defied all odds this season - keeping the pace with fellow promoted clubs MK Dons and Peterborough, and Gannon has also been linked with the vacant managerial post at Derby County.
