Pack the Wham for Rovers

28 September 2018

John Coleman is urging fans to ‘pack the Wham' on Tuesday as Stanley take on high-flying Doncaster Rovers.

Tickets are on sale for the game with Grant McCann's side currently fourth in the League One table and on the hunt for promotion this season.

Coleman has been disappointed with the crowds at home as Stanley enjoy their first season in the third tier of English football since 1960.

It's 50-years since the club reformed next month and Coleman is hoping the town come and cheer on the Reds, especially with neighbours Burnley and Blackburn not playing on Tuesday night.

“I take my hat off to the 1,500 fans who come every week but it's bitterly frustrating to just get 1,500 supporters when we are in the highest level we have played since the 1960s," said Coleman.

“I do not know what more we can do. We have initiatives and promotions but we are playing fantastic football against good quality opposition, we have tried to improve the infrastructure and the facilities, like the Clayton End, for the fans.

“We are building a new stand, we have plans in place for a new bar, new changing rooms and new offices.

“We have beer promotions where it's far cheaper than Premier League grounds and pies are cheaper as well.

“Owner Andy Holt is making the club self-sufficient and, over the 50 years, a lot of work has gone in to keep this club alive.

“As I have said before, I don't want to be ‘The Club That Never Dies', I want it to be the ‘Club That Thrives', I want to do more than survive but we do need the fans to support us.”
