Accrington Stanley are heading for Europe… in an old £250 banger. Club staff are setting off on the mammoth trip on Friday 12th July to raise funds to improve facilities for fans.

The 1,000 mile trip will take three days and visits France, Switzerland, Italy and Monaco. It aims to raise £10,000 for a new bar and revamped toilets.

FSF affiliate Accrington Stanley Supporters’ Club came up with the fundraising idea following the results of an online survey. Fans said better facilities were central to improving the matchday experience.

Chief Executive Rob Heys said: “It’s a fantastic idea which our supporters’ club came up with. Not only will it raise a bit of cash but it will raise the profile of the club both here and abroad. We’ll be taking Accrington Stanley into Europe a few years early.”

Accrington Stanley Supporters’ Club would like to thank Scott Dawson Advertising in Burnley who secured the car and kitted it out all free of charge.
