One poor Stockport fan was sent a letter claiming he 'stinks'

The identity of both the writer and the recipient of the note is currently unclear.

STOCKPORT ARE CURRENTLY languishing in 17th place in the Conference North, however that should the least of one (or two) fan’s problems judging by the letter below.

The note directed at two unidentified individuals, who ostensibly support the club and regularly turn up for their home games, lamented the stench emanating from their seats, and read as follows:

“To: The two guys in black leather jackets who have recently started sitting in some of these seats.

“Sorry. There’s no way to put this without hurting your feelings, but one or both of you stinks and it is ruining the experience of those around you.”

The identity of the letter writer is unclear, though the individual in question indicates that they’re writing on the behalf of a number of Stockport supporters, and it was found stuck to a seat at Edgeley Park — the club’s home ground — yesterday, according to reports.
