Stanley hoping for bumper Fan Friday crowd
ACCRINGTON Stanley are aiming to attract a season ticket holder from each of the other 91 Football League and Premier League clubs to Friday’s home game against Scunthorpe United. The Reds have brought their fixture forward a day in a bid to boost the attendance, and are aiming to break the 2,000 barrier for the match. Stanley have now announced that season ticket holders for any other Football League and Premier League club can buy tickets for Friday’s game for only £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and £1 for accompanied under 12s. The club hope it will attract fans from around the country. “I’ll be looking out for supporters of my old clubs and hoping to see some Blackburn, Southampton, Sheffield United and Stoke shirts in the crowd,” said Reds boss James Beattie.
