Oh my.

Seems like I do more articles apologising for absence nowadays, but here we go again.

I really am a little short on time at present. As most of you will know I work at the Sport in the Community at Burnley Football Club, so that does take a lot of time.

Even on days off, it is a day to relax and do nothing for me, I just need to get the inspiration and will back to get publishing again, but never fear, it will come!

Unlucky for you lot I guess.

Firstly, I would like to say a big welcome to Accrington Stanley to Ilyas Khan, the new Non-Executive Chairman of the club and Peter Marsden who is now President.

Former Chairman David O’Neill is still at the club, but has stepped down into the role of Managing Director.

This comes after Khan paid the remainder of the club’s 308,000 debt to HM Revenue & Customs, to save the future of the Crown Ground club.

In a joint statement on the club’s website, Khan and Marsden said: “We believe that the town, the community and the supporters should now link arms with the team and the management to forge a stronger and vibrant partnership that will be a credit to this wonderful wonderful Football Club.’

Meanwhile, on the field, things are going from strength to strength with John Coleman’s side firing themselves into the Johnstones Paint Trophy area Semi-Final after an impressive home victory over Bury.

The draw for the Semi-Final can be seen on Saturday morning on Soccer AM.

Peace for now people, speak soon!
