Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

Have just heard from a good source, the bus will NOT be setting off from the ground,the reason given is the "POLICE" say they cant police it!! that seems very odd to me, other parades through Accrington have been, one the other month,seems the players etc will be boarding the bus at bottom of union st. just going the distance of that block and getting off at Broadway.if thats true is a real poor state of affairs in my view, the team have really earned this Parade, and no-one from the club has notified people who no doubt will be stood on Whalley Rd? can someone please clarify the state of affairs.

Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

Union St to Broadway??

What kind of a parade is that??

The police can manage the carnival parade, all the way from Thorneyholme Road, why not this??

Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

IF needed, two police bikes at the most. One leading and the other following the bus. The horses are probably busy elsewhere as it is Bank Holiday weekend which is more than likely where the problem lies.

Not surprising Cashy. Do we actually have any 'POLICE' left in Accy?
Bit difficult for the 1copper on duty today to be in 5 places at once!

Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

just returned from Whalley road , the police suggested we went near the Aldi store. The open top bus came from nearby as the police would not allow the open top bus to travel down Whalley Road, although we did see the team etc ...........you just could not make it up.

Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

It must have been a real "Let Down" for the players who have grafted all season and achieved the near impossible.though they didn't display this when the buses 400 yd run arrived, though J.C. did NOT look best suited, wonder if that was the reason.?

We had a private viewing of the cup in Andy's local drinking haunt saturday night when he came in with the cup after his return from the away game.
He's just as enthusiastic about Accrington Stanley as any dedicated fan.

So, how did they get down Whalley Road, the whole of Max Taxis' fleet?
Or did they form a procession, as in the old 'Whit Walks'?

In 2006, I followed the bus from Livingstone Road, into town, but this time, waited on Union Street, don't walk as good as 12yrs ago!!

Apparently they came down Whalley Rd in a standard 'closed top' bus then transferred to the open top one in town - I too remember the 2006 parade, the lads went along Queens Rd & down Burnley Rd into town on an open topped bus - either h & s 'rules' have changed since then or someone at the council is being a jobsworth

Think healthy and safety rules changed the 2006 parade was a lot better. Both Andy and Coley wasn’t happy according to his social media.
