Stockport County choose Steroplast for a winning partnership

Hero image

At Steroplast, we have quite a few Stockport County supporters. It’s a fact which, when you know that the club’s ground is just four miles from our head office, and that it’s been around since 1890, will come as no surprise. Now, though, our connection with The Hatters has gone beyond mere support: we’ve established a partnership in which we’ll be helping to keep the club running – literally! They will be using our product range to assist with player rehabilitation, ensuring that they get back onto the pitch as soon as possible.

Actually, Stockport County is just the latest in a rapidly growing list of sports organisations and individuals that have chosen to work closely with Steroplast. This is something else which should come as no surprise, given that we’re constantly enhancing our sports range with new and powerfully effective products. In fact, sport is our most rapidly growing range, and – together with our extensive first aid and emergency ranges – we can provide teams and individuals with everything they need, from physio essentials and rehabilitation products to trauma kits and defibrillators.

Luke Smith

Luke Smith is The Hatters’ club physio, and it was his decision to work closely with Steroplast. And that’s yet another unsurprising fact. After all, with a degree in Sports Rehabilitation, plus a Masters in Strength and Conditioning, and with considerable experience of working in the pro-sport environment, Luke knows a good sports product range when he sees one. And, in Steroplast, he saw one. “We were looking to work with a local company with a reputation for delivering a fast, reliable and high-quality service,” he said. “Steroplast’s professionalism, along with the fact that they provide all the medical equipment we use in our first team and academy structure, on a daily basis, made them an obvious choice.”

Stockport County

So – why The Hatters?

And before you say it – no, it’s not because they’re mad. It’s actually a nickname that has its origins in Stockport’s important role in the history of the British hat-making industry – a connection that goes back some 400 years! However, as it’s a moniker that the club shares with Luton Town, many supporters refer to them simply as ‘County’. Established in 1883 (originally as Heaton Norris Rovers), the club has many notable achievements in its kitbag of successes, including holding a Football League record for a 9-game winning run without conceding a goal! Today, County play in the National League North.
