Accrington Stanley Football Club have just closed on their tastiest signing this year. Born in 1995 and locally based, the new member of their squad is set to bring something new and exciting to Stanley on match days.

John Coleman, Manager of Accrington Stanley, has been determined to bring in a local talent in celebration of Stanley’s success. He commented: “After impressive seasons at Everton, Rochdale AFC and Burnley FC, the experience is definitely there and we are really excited about the new addition to the Stanley Family! We really needed some fresh meat here at Stanley and the Commercial Team has found the cherry on the cake.”

Stanley are proud to announce that their new signing – Clayton Park Pies – have committed to supplying pie-tastic savouries at Stanley for the foreseeable.

In conjunction with the club, the Hyndburn-based baking company have also invested in new pie warmers and hot display equipment at Accrington Stanley Football Club, to ensure better-quality pies for match attendees.

Daniel Bowerbank, Commercial Manager of Accrington Stanley said: “As a community club we are determined to bring like-minded businesses into our Stanley Connections group of businesses supporting the club and with the same ethos. It is great that we can announce Clayton Park Pies as our new supplier of Accrington Stanley for the foreseeable.”

Barry Thomas, Managing Director at Clayton Park Pies, commented: “It’s a privilege to be welcomed into the #StanleyFamily as their official pie suppliers! We are bringing with us a huge selection, ranging from the traditional potato and meat pies to a more alternative chicken balti or Bombay potato pie.

“It’s pretty special, as an #AmazingAccrington based company, to provide our services to Accrington based people at an Accrington based club. We’re really looking forward to this partnership with the club developing and, as always, are thankful for the support from a local business.”
