Profile

Accrington Stanley are managed by John Coleman who returned to the club in September 2014, following the surprise departure of James Beattie.

Coleman, who previously spent 12-and-a-half-years in the Reds dugout between 1999 and 2012, went on to lead the club up into League One.

Synonymous with the lower echelons of English football, Stanley have gradually worked their way up from the non league arena and have now become a firm fixture in the professional scene and are looking to gain promotion to the third-tier.

At the heart of their meteoric rise up the leagues was John Coleman, who took over the team in 1999, when they were plying their trade in the Northern Premier League Division One. Coleman managed to gain promotion early on in his tenure and in the 2002-2003 season got them promoted to the Conference.

It took three years, but Coleman managed to get them promoted again as champions from the Conference and the 2006-2007 season saw them play their first season in league football.

Coleman continued to shine at the Lancashire club and he just failed to gain another promotion in the 2010-2011 season, as they made the play-offs after finishing a creditable fifth, but came unstuck against Stevenage Borough in the semi-finals, losing 3-0 on aggregate.

It was an end of an era in 2012 as Coleman decided to vacate his post as Stanley manager and head for pastures new, by becoming the boss of Rochdale, but returned to the club two years later.
