Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt says there has been “a lot of interest” from prospective buyers, but there are currently no active discussions.

Holt confirmed in October the club was up for sale, saying in a post on X he was “not the right person to take this forward. Accy needs to change and become a new club with new methods.”

The decision came shortly after assistant manager Jimmy Bell admitted that his and long-serving boss John Coleman’s futures were uncertain, with their current deals set to expire at the end of the season.

In an update on X this morning (January 19), Holt said there had been plenty of interest in the club but he will still be doing his best to improve it while he is in charge.

He said: “I put the club up for sale a while ago. Whilst there has been a lot of interest, we are not actively in discussions with anyone in this regard.

“There are a lot of clubs available to purchase, and there is a lot of choice.

“My guess is you’ll still be stuck with me in [the] next years. This doesn’t concern or worry me.

"Whilst I own the club, I will keep doing my best and trying to improve it for the town and community.

“Our club is losing money and has debt. The debt is only to my business and my intention is to clear it via a share issue, as previously mentioned.

"This still leaves the issue of underlying losses. There is no golden bullet on this.

“We need to return the club to stability and to do this there are tough choices. The reason for stability is this: the club is wholly dependent on my business.”

Holt went onto say three things needed to happen for the financial situation to improve – increase the prices at the club, reduce footballing costs, and for the Government to introduce an independent regulator for football.

He said there will be announcements “in the coming weeks” about prices for season tickets and matchday tickets, and there will be other increases on “other matchday consumables.”

Stanley currently sit 12th in League Two, four points shy of the play-offs, following their recent home loss against Gillingham.

Their next match sees them travel to Walsall tomorrow (January 20, 3pm).
