Hello, my name is Craig Farnaby.
It was a great honour to represent Stockport County Football Club from 1987-1989, a period of time I remember like it was yesterday. I had the privilege of playing in a team Managed by Asa Hartford (Player/Manager), with Len Cantello as Assistant Manager, a fantastic partnership with a wealth of experience. Playing in the middle of midfield alongside Asa (The Gaffer) was an experience to cherish, itís not often you can say you played in midfield with a player who has represented his country in the World Cup Finals.
During my time at County there were 3 players from the North-East, myself, Tommy Sword, and Ian McKenzie and the Stockport faithful made me us all extremely welcome, and I would like to think we returned the compliment by putting a shift or two in for the football club.
I currently work in a Sports College in the North East and the picture attached is of myself, and Headteacher Mr Craig Walker, recently presenting me with a framed certificate as the 931st player to represent Stockport County Football Club. This was a very proud moment to receive the framed certificate as recognition of my time at County and I am extremely grateful to all concerned for arranging this.
Many thanks again and best wishes for the future to all associated with Stockport County Football Club, a cracking football club!!
