Stockport boss Gary Ablett has paid tribute to his backroom staff after they paid money out of their own pockets for vital equipment at the crisis-torn club.

Administrators Leonard Curtis are urging potential investors to come forward and buy the cash-strapped League One outfit. League rules state that no club can start two seasons in administration, and County risk being expelled if they cannot find a new owner before the start of 2010/2011.

Ablett told the Stockport Express: "I couldn't be happier with the level of commitment that the staff have shown. Not only with [goalkeeping coach Paul Gerrard] putting his hand in his pocket for the heart monitors (£1,200) and [fitness coach] Steve Jones paying for the recovery drinks."

He added: "Everyone's rallying round in a difficult situation and I'm really proud to be involved with the club."
