The 2011–12 season is Stockport County's 130th season in football, and the first outside of the Football League in 106 years, after finishing bottom of League Two in 2010–11.[13] They will be competing in the Conference National. This season runs from 12 August 2011 until 28 April 2012.[14]

In May, Ray Mathias, who had been appointed caretaker manager the previous season, was given the role full-time.[1] However, following proposed investment in the club Dietmar Hamann was appointed as first team manager in July.[3] Hamman stepped down from this post on 7 November 2011.[4][5] Hamann was replaced with his assistant Willie McStay[6] who took caretaker charge until Jim Gannon was appointed director of football at the club.[7]

Background[edit]

This is a list of the significant events to occur at the club during the 2011–12 season, presented in chronological order. This list does not include transfers, which are listed in the transfers section below, or match results, which are in the results section.

In 2010–11 Stockport were relegated from the Football League, finishing bottom of League Two.[15] They started 2010–11 with Paul Simpson as manager but he was sacked mid-season.[16] The 2011–12 season marks Stockport County's first season outside the Football League since 1904–05, and their first in the Football Conference. They will also compete in the FA Trophy for the first time in their history. Stockport's opening league game in Non-League football was against Forest Green Rovers, a match that was moved to 12 August (a Friday) so it could be televised by Premier Sports, the Conference' television partner. Three other games were moved for television - the home fixture against Luton Town and away games at Cambridge United and Fleetwood Town.[17]

In July, Stockport looked set to receive new investment from a consortium named Sports Investment Management Limited (SIML),[18] headed by Liverpool-based businessman Tony Evans, who was appointed a director to the club board.[19] However, in September the deal failed to go through following a disagreement between the club's shareholders and SIML over the responsibility of paying bills.[20] Evans' failure to disclose the identity of other members of the consortium was also cited as a stumbling block to the deal.[21]

On 31 October, Stockport moved their away match against Ebbsfleet United (Which would have been played 6 March 2012) to 12 November 2011. This was done due to the fact that both teams were no longer participating in this seasons FA Cup after being knocked out in 4th Round Qualifying.[22] Dietmar Hamann's assistant Willie McStay to took charge of Stockport for this match, due to Hamann stepping down as manager earlier in the week.[4][5] This made McStay Stockport's fifth manager in three years.[6] Two months after his resignation Hamman cited the failure of a proposed takeover by businessman Tony Evans as his reason for leaving the club.[23]

On 14 November Stockport announced that Jim Gannon would return to the club to become director of football.[24] He would be assisted by the then caretaker manager Willie McStay.[7] Gannon stated that the club are in a worse state now then they were when he left.[25]

On 17 November Stockport announced that their away match against Luton Town was postponed due to Luton's participation in the FA Cup.[26] The game that was meant to be played on Saturday 3 December 2011 will now be played on Tuesday 10 January 2012.[27] On 13 January 2012 Stockport announced that their last match of the season, a game away to Hayes & Yeading United) had been brought forward from a 3pm kick off to a 1pm kick off. This was done to enable Premier Sports to broadcast the live game.[28] On 16 January Stockport announced that the game against Alfreton Town which was supposed to be played on Saturday, 4 February 2012 was postponed due to Alfreton Town's participation in the third round of the FA Trophy.[29] The following day Stockport announced that this game will now be played on 14 February 2012.[30] On 7 February Stockport announced the Alfreton Town match was postponed for a second time as Alfreton's FA Trophy match versus Gateshead was postponed and would be played on 14 February 2012.[31] The rearranged match will now be played on Tuesday 6 March.[32]

On 17 January 2012, the club announced that Spencer Fearn was to be appointed a Director at the club.[33]

On 7 February, the Manchester Evening News reported that Stockport were to receive a £180,000 loan from the town's council.,[34] Later in the day Chairman of the club, Lord Peter Snape spoke out via the club website about the council loan. He claimed that the story published in the Manchester Evening News was "an inaccurate and sensationalised report ".[35] Stockport's financial troubles were further helped when; with the help of Sale Sharks owner Brian Kennedy, Stockport do not have to pay rent to play at Edgeley Park for the next few months.[36]

Sale Sharks confirmed that they would be leaving Edgeley Park at the end of the season. [37] This meant that Stockport County once again could generate revenue streams via the club and the ground.[38]

Stockport finished their first season outside of the Football League, in 16th position [8]
