Profile

John Coleman returned to Accrington Stanley for a second spell in September 2014, having previously led Accy to a hat-trick of promotions, from the Northern Premier League Division One up into the Football League, in what was a hugely successful tenure. 

He went on to record his best accomplishment yet, leading Accrington up to League One for the first time since 1958.

Coleman had a short spell as player-manager of Ashton United before he moved to Accrington in 1999, for what would be the defining job of his career so far. Coleman joined Stanley with the club languishing in the Northern Premier League One, but after 12 glorious years in charge he'd propelled the club up into League Two.

Coleman was finally lured away from Stanley in January of 2012 to take over the reigns at Rochdale in League One. At the time, Coleman was the third longest serving Manager in the Football League behind only Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger, and had taken charge of no less than 587 games at Stanley. The Liverpudlian has since managed Southport, and Sligo Rovers, before moving back to Accrington in 2014.

John Coleman Quotes

If you think you've seen a better goal than (Jimmy) Ryan's this weekend, then you're drunk!


I'd be lying if I said there wouldn't be any other club in the Football League who I hold in the same esteem as Accrington.


I've had the taste of big games now, and I want more of them.
