Richardson linked with Accrington exit

The future of Accrington Stanley boss Leam Richardson has been thrown into doubt today amid reports he may quit the club, reports the Lancashire Telegraph.

33-year old player-manager Richardson, who was only appointed full-time boss at the Store First Stadium in November, is believed to be considering his position at the club despite guiding Stanley to safety this season.

It is understood that Richardson could link up again with former Stanley boss Paul Cook at Chesterfield, who yesterday let four members of his backroom staff leave the club.

Assistant Manager Tommy Wright, reserve team coach Mark Crossley, development coach John Dungworth and kit man Kurt McDermott all departed in what the Spireites described as a backroom reshuffle, meaning there could be a natural vacancy for Richardson to fill at the Proact Stadium.

Only yesterday the Accrington boss was planning a future at the club wanting to make an impact in League Two next season, if they could keep hold of the key players.

He said: “If you can keep this group together and add to it in the right way then I think you will have a really competitive group and give yourself every chance.”

The young manager has won 10 of his 36 matches in charge this season, which led to the club confirming their Football League status a week before the end of the season.
