As a local family business that came from very humble beginnings, we have also had to overcome great adversity over the years to become the thriving company that it is today; we feel we share a great deal of core values and ethics with Accrington Stanley FC, not least of all the passion to succeed, the importance of community spirit and the committed resilience to preserve both of our great histories.  We are very excited to be working alongside this fantastic football club and hope that we can play our part to take Accrington Stanley FC, the club that wouldn’t die, to the next level.”
