The 2012/2013 season will mark a new chapter in the life of Woodley Sports FC. The club will undergo a complete makeover which will see them benefit from a full-time status, a new management team and even a new name.
Stockport Sports FC will be born and their first leader will be Aston Villa legend Peter Withe. The 60-year old has returned from life living down under in Australia to take up the position and attempt to lead Stockport back up the football pyramid, from their current position in the North West Counties Football League. It could be seen as something of a coup for the club to have attracted Withe – who represented England 11 times during the 1980’s and also won a European Cup with Aston Villa – but certainly proves that both club and manager have the same lofty ambitions.
