The taxman has put Accrington's fixtures and fittings up for auction after they failed to clear their tax bill.
The Lancashire Telegraph reports that the club owe £9,000 of their £32,000 payment due on January 22nd, and the taxman has moved to advertise an auction at the Crown Ground of various equipment on March 9th. Amongst the lots on sale are 1,600 seats, floodlights and pylons, and the CCTV system.
Stanley say they will meet the outstanding sum on Monday, ahead of a Wednesday deadline, ending the sale risk but they remain seriously in financial danger. Shirt sponsors Comined Stabilisation went into liquidation last week, and the club are believed to be owed around £43,000 from their failure and the demise of a second sponsor, while gates have slumped at the Crown Ground like other sides around the country.
