Accrington want to discuss long term deal with boss Coleman

Accrington Stanley chief executive Rob Heys has confirmed that the club want to discuss a new long-term contract for manager John Coleman. Coleman is the longest-serving boss in the club's history after taking over at the Crown Ground in 1999 and has steered the club through some troubled waters in recent years.

Heys told BBC Radio Lancashire: "We should have got it sorted last season. In terms of the board we're all fully behind John and all of the supporters are.

He's very much a part of the furniture. He understands the working of the club and it isn't through a lack of desire to keep him at the club that we haven't agreed the contract.

"It's very important we resolve the issue when he returns to work on Monday morning."
