Accrington Stanley team will arrive on Broadway

Accrington Stanley are calling for the local community to join them in a civic celebration for their promotion to League One and winning the League Two trophy on Sunday 6th May.

  • The players will arrive on Broadway at 5:15pm on Sunday 6th May
  • Calling for fans to meet and greet the team
  • Celebrate alongside the players

This weekend will see a celebration of two amazing results: their promotion to League one for the first time in their history and ending the season top of the league thanks to their 1-0 win against Lincoln City on Saturday!

The players will arrive on Broadway at 5:15pm on Sunday 6th May. They will be accompanied by manager, John Coleman, his assistant, Jimmy Bell, as well as backroom staff plus Andy Holt. The bus will be stationary on Broadway where fans will have the opportunity to meet the players, have merchandise signed, take pictures, and get involved in the commemoration of Accrington Stanley’s success.

Players and staff will be on Broadway for around one hour before moving on to their private Champions Dinner in Accrington Town Hall. The event was sold out over one month ago in anticipation of the club’s promotion – with 260 people booked to attend, the evening is set to be a success.

David Burgess, Managing Director at Accrington Stanley, commented:

“We have been really overwhelmed with the community support we have received throughout the last season. Being promoted and winning the league is really an achievement for the whole town – putting Accrington back on the map. We’re incredibly proud to be a part of this wonderful town. I really hope people in and around Accrington can meet the players on Broadway to celebrate with us all on Sunday.”

Miles Parkinson, Leader of Hyndburn Borough Council, said:

“This is just incredible for the town. There were just short of 5,000 people at the last game of the season. We anticipate that future games will be attended by thousands of away fans as well and the entire town will benefit. There is no doubt this will increase footfall in the town so we are calling for shopkeepers, hotels and B’n’Bs in Accrington to really step up and support the club.”
