Sale pay Stockport's police bill

Stockport County

Sale Sharks have paid cash-strapped Stockport's policing bill for this Friday's home game against Crewe.

County's financial worries meant they faced the prospect of playing the Edgeley Park game behind closed doors.

Sale chief executive James Jennings said it was only right they helped out the side they share the ground with.

"It would have been a sad day for the supporters if they had not been able to watch the final [home] game of the season," said Jennings.
