ACCRINGTON Stanley insist their plans to assemble a squad for the new season will not be affected by the latest transfer embargo to hit the club.

Stanley are currently unable to register players because of new rules, voted in at the Football League’s recent annual meeting, putting any club that files its yearly accounts late under embargo.

The Reds are still to file their accounts for the past year but chief executive Rob Heys believes the delay will not result in the club missing out on players.

“We can sign players but we can’t register them,” he said.

“We’ve got six weeks until the start of the season, though, so there’s not a problem at the moment. It’s to do with the 2009 accounts but we hope to get that done in the next couple of weeks.”

Stanley boss John Coleman has agreed new contracts with a number of his squad and is due to sign Alex Cisak, Craig Lindfield and Michael Hall.

The Reds, who were late paying players’ wages this month, are closing in on two or three more signings.

Here we go again & the seasons not even started yet - 'not a problem at the moment' says Rob Heys - the other day he said the new rules regarding accounts being submitted in time wouldn't affect Stanley - how are we supposed to believe anything he says - time for both him & O'Neil to go I think

Echo the sentiment Accstan, no room at our Football Club for these people.

It is not fair on the Players, Management and most importantly the fans, we were in a right pickle twelve months ago and were bailed out not by these two but somebody who had Stanley at Heart!!

Time to go Mr. O'Neill & Mr. Heys we need a future not going from crisis to crisis please close the door on your way out!
