Accrington Stanley

Club Profile

First Played: 2003-4

Win Rate: 44% (from 18 games)

Last Updated: 07 July 2021

Accrington Stanley are one of those teams who came up to the Conference after us and went into the Football League before us; promoted in 2003 and then up again in 2006. It did feel a little annoying, we won’t lie. But, to be fair, they weren’t the only ones to do so. On the flip side, our 2010-1 League Two playoff win saw them stay down as we went up. And then we denied them automatic promotion to League One with a draw at their place on the last day of the 2015-6 season. Oops. They got there in the end, however.

Accrington Stanley Ground Information

Away Fans’ Stand

Coppice Terrace / Stand

Ticket Info

Facilities for Disabled Fans

Away fans with a disability or impairment are charged full price appropriate to their age at the Crown Ground. If you need the support of a carer, however, they can go free – as long as you have the necessary proof when buying your ticket e.g. enhanced PIPS.

In the and HML Recycling stands, there are 12 spaces for wheelchair users; both of which are towards the Coppice Terrace end. If you need to use one of these, you must first contact either Boro’ or Accrington Stanley to reserve one.

There are also 28 seats in the stand for ambulant disabled supporters. These are split between home and away fans equally.

Pre-Match Pints

While Redz is the club’s own bar and lets away fans in, there’s little reason to go further than The Crown on Whalley Road. It’s literally behind the stadium. If you did want to try somewhere a bit further, however, The Greyhound (a Sam Smith’s pub) can be found in the direction of the motorway.

Accrington Stanley Travel Information – Distance: 210 miles

By Road

The Crown Ground is situated on the A680, just off the M65 around Manchester. There are two ways off approaching it, so you may wish to check up on roadworks nearer the time to decide which route is best.

You can either head up the M6 to J29 and join the M65. Or you can travel all the way up the M1 to the M62 and head East towards Manchester. At Junction 18 head up the M66, which then becomes the A56 and leads up to the M65 at J8.

Turn off the M65 at J7 and take the exit North (Clayton-Le-Moors). Turn right at the first set of traffic lights opposite Clayton Business Park, following the A678. Follow the road over the canal bridge to the next set of lights.

Turn right again going over the motorway bridge and towards Accrington on the A680. After around half a mile, turn left down Livingstone Road. This is 50 yards on past the Crown Hotel on the left. And that should do you right.

You’ll find plenty of parking in the streets around the stadium. With no resident schemes in place, Accy do ask that you still park responsibly all the same.

By Rail


From the station, the ground is a 20-minute walk – most of it is uphill! Turn right out of the station (North side) and follow the viaduct; staying on the left hand side. Go on up the hill to the left, before taking the main road that crosses it once over the hill. Around a mile up on the right hand side will be the ground.
