Although the HattersMatters website has been online since 1999 it is only in recent years that we have decided to focus our attentions on creating an online database to show details of Stockport County’s history such as past and present players as well as match information (line ups and statistics) from games played in our history.
As well as using matchday programmes as a source of data we must also acknowledge the following people, publications and websites for the information displayed on the site:
- ‘Stockport County: A Complete Record 1865-1991‘ by Peter Freeman and Richard Harnwell
- ‘Stockport County Encyclopaedia and History Update 1994 – 2000‘ by Peter Freeman
- ‘Football League and Premiership Referees 1888 to 2013′ by Gilbert Upton
