ACCRINGTON STANLEY have this morning confirmed that Charlton Athletic’s 18-year-old defender won’t be returning to the Fraser Eagle Stadium for Stanleys remaining two games.

Thomas was ineligible to play in Stanley’s previous three games after recieving a straight red card during the defeat at Macclesfield at the end of March.

The commanding young centre back can now play for Stanley again, but Stanley’s assistant manager Jimmy Bell has told of how it is highly unlikely the defender will don the Red of Accrington Stanley again, after the club secured their League Two safety.

Next up for Accrington is a tricky trip to Wrexham, who were relegated Tuesday following a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Hereford United, effectively ending an 87-year long association with the Football League.

‘I expect Wrexham’s fans will turn out in force,’ said Bell speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph.

‘It’s their last home game in the Football League for at least the next 12 months.

‘It’s difficult to say when they will be back. Everyone knows how tough it can be in the Conference.

‘It will be a strange atmosphere, but they will want to put on a good show for their supporters.

‘However, we’ll go there playing for a bit of pride. We want to win every game.’
