Accrington Stanley: A Complete Record 1894 - 1962 by Mike Jackman & Garth Dykes

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Accrington Stanley is one of the most evocative names in football. Even before that day during the 1961-2 campaign when they resigned from the Football League in mid-season, Stanley were always one of the more prominent names in the lower divisions, although even modest success came late in their history.
Formed as a junior club before the turn of the century, Stanley eventually filled the void left by the demise of Accrington FC, who were one of the original members of the Football League in 1888.
Stanley themselves were original members of the Third Division North when it was formed in 1921 and although they never rose above that and more often than not were fighting a battle against re-election, they were, ironically, nearer to the Second Division towards the end of their League days than at any other time.
Alas, they failed narrowly and eventually slipped into the newly-formed Fourth Division. That was the end of the road. Accrington Stanley, hard-up and apparently going nowhere, eventually gave up the ghost., although even their passing as a Football League club was not without its controversy and some violent death throes. Happily, their name lives on today in the form of a different non-League club.
Now football historians Mike Jackman and Garth Dykes have pieced together the complete story of Accrington Stanley and their predecessors., Accrington FC. A history of both clubs and their grounds and full statistics of every first-team game are coupled with biographies of every Accrington Stanley player to have made a Football League appearance, as well as those of every manager. Combined with many other features and rarely-seen photographs, it is a book which will bring back memories, settle arguments and prove to be a valuable addition to the published works on the game.

In very good condition. Some light bumps/scuffs to edges.
