Man­age­ment pair­ing have done just grand

Accrington Observer - - SPORT -

STAN­LEY for­ward Billy Kee has con­grat­u­lated John Cole­man and Jimmy Bell after the Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley man­age­rial duo made it 1,000 games in charge to­gether.

Cole­man and Bell reached the ac­co­lade on Satur­day, when the team picked up a 3-1 vic­tory over Chel­tenham Town in the sec­ond round of the FA Cup.

Kee has been in­volved for a lot of those games, and he thinks they de­serve a lot of credit for mak­ing it to the mile­stone.

“It’s an amaz­ing achieve­ment for two lads from Kirkby to chalk up 1,000 games as a man­age­ment team. They have come all the way through the lower leagues into League One and de­serve a lot of credit for that,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“They have al­ways been bril­liant to me and they do get on well to­gether. I did read that they joked they were lucky to not have ripped each other’s heads off but they are pas­sion­ate about their foot­ball and hate los­ing. They re­ally hate los­ing.

“They have kept their part­ner­ship go­ing and now have John Doolan as a re­cent ad­di­tion and they all work well to­gether and have got the suc­cess they de­serve with Ac­cring­ton.”
