When Accrington Stanley went out of the Football League in 1962 it had a seismic effect on English football. Unlike now, when there is promotion and relegation between league and non-league football, teams only resigned from the League as a last resort and Stanley's demise, basically because they could not afford to pay their gas bill, was a huge story. After being resurrected in 1968, Accrington Stanley stumbled around the lower leagues in Lancashire until the early 1990s when the astonishing climb back to the League began. In the 2005-06 season Stanley stormed to the top of the Conference, stayed there all season and at last the supporters' dreams came true. Writer, and long-time supporter, Phil Whalley, author of Accrington Stanley Football Club, has talked to the club's charismatic chairman, his namesake Eric Whalley, and the club's long-serving manager John Coleman plus supporters and club employees who were there in the bad old days. The result in an Accrington Stanley book that captures the reasons why fans support their local club and why passion and hard work can achieve the unlikeliest of dreams. If you buy one book on Accrington Stanley this is the one.
