Robbo and Rose compete for a place

Two former Hereford United players are competing for the left back position at Stockport County. Mark Robinson and Michael Rose are both signed at Edgeley Park for the coming season.

The two played 45 minutes each in last night's friendly against Leicester City. Rose was reported to have sent a free-kick high and wide.

Robinson was signed from Hereford United late in May 2005 to link up with Chris Turner who was then manager at Stockport. Turner had been his manager at Hartlepool where he started his career.

Rose moved from Edgar Street to Yeovil in summer 2004 and featured in most of the
games in his first season at Huish Park. But last season he fell out of favour and had spells on-loan at Cheltenham and Scunthrope before being signed by Stockport.
