For the attention of all Accrington Stanley fans:

We’ve Won The Cup, Now Here Comes The Book…

Pride & Passion not £’s & Prima Donnas
( Supported by Applegreen Promotions )

2017-2018 has been the most successful season Accrington Stanley fans have every experienced. We’ve seen more points won, more goals scored; more victories achieved and the largest, most enthusiastic crowds ever to have flocked through the Wham Stadium turnstiles.

From the heart-wrenching sadness of Jordan Moseley’s death, to the euphoric moment when Séamus Conneely lifted the League Two winner’s trophy, the unprecedented highs and lows we’ve been through together will surely live long in the memory.

To celebrate this historic chapter in Stanley history, OASSC, on behalf of the club, have produced  a fantastic coffee-table book that every Stanley fan will want to treasure forever.

Packed with unforgettable photographs and supported by a unique, professionally written narrative, the book, entitled ‘Pride & Passion not £’s & Prima Donnas’, was launched on the 2nd August to much acclaim.

” This book is wonderful, had me in tears, thank you “

” I have to say its the best book I have seen on Stanley “

“It makes you remenber all the great things that happened at Stanley last season, many thanks”

“Amazing book, I cant stop reading it and looking through all the pictures. Memories that will never be forgotten”

“It’s a great book. OASSC have done a brilliant job. Let’s face it, no one will ever forget the season, but having this beautiful book, which is also very cleverly written, will enhance these memories”

” I bought one last night when I collected my season ticket. What a lovely set of pictures and memories…it’s on my coffee table at home, never to be removed. Well done !”

“The book has arrived – how brilliant it is. Well produced, glossy, substantial. A treasured item of Stanley memorabilia…and my name in it too ! Thanks you so much “

“Some great pictures. Will be great to look back on in a few years. What a season ! “

” This great gift arrived yesterday, chronicling in photos, a memorable year from our friends across the pond “

” Any Stanley fan that ain’t got one of these don’t know what they are missing !”

Raising Money Buy The Book!
