Horner swoops for Stockport defender
Tommy Sword built a strong reputation in the heart of the Stockport County. He played well over 200 games for the Hatters and scored an impressive 50 goals, around half of them from the penalty spot. Things didn't really work out at the Vic for the Geordie and he was back at Edgeley Park by the end of the season having had a loan spell at Halifax.
