I can't make out the players signatures,but the badge is our old design,so the ball's at least 5 years old. I have or should i say had one from our promotion winning game back to the Football League in 2006. It's an actual ball from the game,not a cheapo type one they sell in club shops. I was a steward at Accy Stanley back then,so after the game we were invited to pick up any souvenirs from the ground or changing rooms. I put it in the loft and thought it'd be safe there,but then me and Mrs Accy separated,so I don't think i'll see it again. I'm now wondering is she put it on fleabay like that one Postie's found
The ball is from a house clearance ,some chap is helping his aged mum and dad have a clear out.I was loking at a boxed set of It ain't half hot mum,he was getting shut of.The ball is just one of many things mostly household items.
@Accy cyclist I was at the game the other night in the away end, a friend of mine supports Rochdale so I go to their games now and then. I'd identified the fixture in advance as one to go to because I wanted to see the ground, I like it, great terraces. Very tense and difficult game- vital win for Rochdale although I thought Accrington were a little bit better on the night.
By gaining an owner who's put money into the club and not taken money out like some dodgy owners do. How Your club has ended up at the bottom of the division I don't know Mark. Bradford's owners are probably on the take.
