From Stone to Cologne


Local Stoke fans Noel Edwards and Mark Barnsley took to the road at the end of July with their sons George Edwards and Thomas Barnsley and 13 others to follow stoke city in their pre-season tournament in Cologne Germany.

There was indeed a huge contingency from the area (Stone and the villages) to see Stoke lose out to Porto by 1 – 3 – but as they say, it’s not the winning, it’s the taking part (that is until the season gets fully underway).

Good luck to Stoke this season. They have done an awesome job under “Sparky” and he seems to have bought well for 2015/6 – a top ten finish and some silverware would be very welcome indeed!
