The windscreen on Vale's coach misted up on the outward journey but their intentions were crystal clear out on the paddock.
Both sides played their part in an entertaining encounter.
Planes were roaring off from Manchester Airport, a lone buzzard circled the ground searching for thermals, a fox was spotted patrolling the cricket ground but in an afternoon of contrasts the players had other issues on their minds.
After a positive start Stockport spent much of the game defending as the Waterloo forwards played a driving game that kept the Stockport defence under pressure for long periods.
The final score of 16-15 was a true reflection of how close the game was but it also could have been a different story if the AK kicker had been as successful as Stockport’s Liam McGovern.
With new recruits, Liam McGovern at 10, Rhodri Mayer at 15 and the return after several years of Nic Smith at 8, Stockport ran out 26-13 winners away at Carlisle.
Two lack-lustre sides fail to entertain
But if first half chances had been taken, it could have been a different story
Victory sealed with superb individual try from Kieran Hughes
