‘£180m to play Stanley away’ – Plenty of fans respond to Accrington chairman’s Bolton Wanderers spat

Accrington Stanley chairman Andy Holt is not backward at coming forwards and he’s been defending his club as they face another season in League One.

Arguably the smallest club in the third-tier are safe this season and have settled well in their new division. They’re set to welcome Bolton Wanderers next season and their chairman is in no mood to butter up the Trotters fans.

One made a derogatory remark to Holt about Accrington’s ground on Twitter, to which he issued a firm rebuke. When the ground was referred to using a derogatory term on Twitter, Holt responded telling the supporter it cost his club £180m to visit, using the same derogatory term back at him.

Accrington have fast become many supporters second team, or one that everyone secretly hopes does very well. They survive on a small budget and Holt has never shied away from honest, sometimes brutal assessments of life as the chairman of a small club.

He’s won a legion of fans by acting in this manner and as you can see from the responses below, the Bolton supporter has firmly been put in his place.
