Accrington Stanley are based in Lancashire and they play their matches wearing an all red home strip with white trim. The home, away and goalkeeper shirts are supplied by Joma and the club were established in 1968 and they are currently managed by England striker James Beattie. The club's highest ever honour was the 2005-06 Conference National titles and they also won the Northern Premier League in the 2002-03 season.
In its current form, Accrington Stanley is one of the youngest clubs in the Football League, having only formed in 1968. However, the current ASFC was pre-dated by a former club of the same name, which was established as Stanley Villa back in 1891. Having folded in 1966, the club was revived in its current form, two years later.

Accrington Stanley have amassed multiple championships in the lower echelons of Britain's expansive non-league system.

No profile of the self-titled 'most famous little club in the world' can go without a reference to the television advert that made the club iconic amongst UK fans. In a advert for milk, first broadcast in 1980, two Liverpudlian boys discuss the merits of drinking milk. The most famous (or should that be infamous?...) line of the advert sees one of the boys claim that if he doesn't drink his milk he'd only be good enough to play for Accrington Stanley. To which the other boy asks "Accrington Stanley, who are they?". Upon this question, the first boy replies, "Exactly." This phrase is now used, in endearing fashion, by the presenters of Soccer Am, whenever they cover an incident involving the club.
