Jesse hunts a new chal­lenge

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THERE won’t be a more ner­vous man in Ac­cring­ton next Satur­day than Stan­ley chair­man Peter Mars­den – and it has lit­tle to do with the re­sult of their big game with Ply­mouth Ar­gyle.

The strug­gling League Two club will be re­ly­ing on re­al­ity TV star Jesse McClure, of Stor­age Hunters to change their for­tunes.

Next Satur­day’s match at the Store First Sta­dium will see the Amer­i­can at­tempt- ing the cross­bar chal­lenge from the half­way line. If suc­cess­ful, he will raise £10,000 from company Store First to­wards a new van to trans­port play­ers to train­ing.

New man­ager John Cole­man also could be tempted to swerve his half-time team talk to watch events un­fold.

If the Amer­i­can celebrity makes the kick, then the re­turn­ing Ac­cring­ton boss may be able to make a case for sign­ing a new player!

Jesse, a sur­prise sup­porter of Ac­cring­ton who ap­peared on Soc­cer AM in a Stan­ley shirt ear­lier this year, said:“I love foot­ball and I love the peo­ple of Ac­cring­ton so when the club asked me to try my luck at the cross­bar chal­lenge, I was only too happy to help.

“It is go­ing to be an awe­some day.”
