Chief exec hails supporters' fund

Stanley were issued with a winding-up order earlier in the summer over an unpaid tax bill of £300,000, but the club have avoided the threat of closure by agreeing to pay back £25,000 a month and the Supporters' Fund have footed the bill for this month as the club survives without any income throughout the summer. The Fund have previously made attempts to earn shares in the club but, while Heys is happy to work with them, he says a partnership is not currently a viable option. "Essentially the Supporters' Fund want to put money into the club in exchange for shares long-term, however while this isn't currently an option that the club is looking to pursue, they have offered us an interest-free loan which is a fantastic gesture," he told Press Association Sport. "We will continue to work together to raise funds for the club, we are after all on the same side and we all want the club to do well."
