Paul Summerside added: “I feel strangely relieved its all over.
“Our club has been like a sick family pet that needed to be put down, but nobody could face up to it.
“I see a time in mid September, club sold, Short history, investment from new owner, young hungry team giving 110%, sitting 3rd in League One, home to Accrington, supported by a rejuvenated positive crowd of 30,000.
“The only way is up.”

“I live three minutes from Bristol Rovers ground and my son has grown up a Sunderland supporter.
“We thought playing Bristol City and Cardiff in the Championship was bad enough, but we will be at Rovers next season. Sunderland till we die!”
Alyson Drummond wrote: “I was looking up the capacity of Accrington Stanley, it’s 5,057.
