League Champions 2006
Oil on linen
This painting is, in theory, the first of six commissions to decorate a new hospitality suite at Accrington Stanley. The building work was due to start next moth, after the season was finished. Coronavirus has changed those plans somewhat, but I’m carrying on in the hope that the future is less bleak than the present.
Depicted are a John Coleman and Jimmy Bell, managers, with the championship trophy for what was the Nationwide Conference. Winning meant Stanley were once again in League football after 44 years.
