League Two

Accrington Stanley clinch historic promotion

18 April 2018

Accrington Stanley will play their football in Sky Bet League One next season following a 2-0 midweek win over Yeovil Town.

John Coleman's men were held to a draw last time out against Exeter City, but it simply delayed the inevitable. Two goals in three minutes from Sky Bet League Two Player of the Season Billy Kee saw off the Glovers, and the promotion party could finally get started.

Following the heartache of 2016 when Stanley were denied promotion in the final minute of the season, the club will now take their place in the third tier of English football for the first time in their history.

But before that, they will be bidding to fend off Luton Town and clinch the Sky Bet League Two title.
