Stanley admit struggle to pay players

League Two Accrington Stanley have revealed they failed to pay some of their players because of to a cash flow problem.

Managing director Rob Heys said early and unexpected bills were to blame for the unpaid wages and that fans did not need to worry.

"We have paid some wages at the moment, but we haven't paid them all," Heys told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"Wages were due as of 1 March but fortunately we have managed to sort the funding from the current board."

"We have got the lowest gates and the smallest wage budget and it is a battle to stay in League Two, but it's where we want to be.

"We accept that battle because if we wanted an easy life we'd drop down a couple of levels.

"It is just a case of these wages. We're full up to date with HMRC and our usual creditors - it's just a matter of getting these wages paid."


Stanley are currently bottom of League Two.
