At the end of the 1892/93 season Accrington lost their place in Division 1 after taking part in the Test Series and resigned from the League rather than take up a place in Division 2. The club folded three years later. They are not the same club as Accrington Stanley who gained a League place in 1921.

 

 


Kevin Keegan and family, a PR picture from the 1970s which was meant to show that footballers were just like the rest of us. It had to be said though that you probably needed to be a football superstar if you were going to be able to afford the weekly shampoo bill that must have put a strain on the Keegan finances!
