The Crown Ground saw the return of a legend last weekend as former striker Paul Beck was the guest of honour.
Beck made 300 appearances for the Reds in the early and mid-1990s and returned for the first time since his playing days to watch Stanley take on Crewe.
Back in 1992 his hat-trick against Gateshead in the first round of the FA Cup sent the Reds through to round two and a tie against the Railwaymen.
"It still gives me goosebumps just thinking about it," he recalled. "It was a very special time because Stanley were then, like now, one of the most famous names in football and the dream was to get back to the Football League.
"But at that time they’d always been starved of a bit of glamour and limelight.
"For whatever reason that year everything seemed to click and Phil Staley, the manager at the time, had got a really good side together and we played some great football and we beat two of the top sides on the way to the first round."
The Crown is a special place for Beck, who almost didn’t turn out for his local team having been turned down as a youngster. But the club is as special to him now as it was then.
"As a footballer I’d always wanted to play for Accrington because I lived in Accrington," he explained. "I’d played there as a youngster but for whatever reason I never got a chance in the first team so I had to go and learn my trade elsewhere at Rossendale for three or four years before I came back."
Beck left Stanley in 1996, making his 300th appearance as an emergency goalkeeper, and now works for Keep Britain Tidy but still has interests in football.
"I’ve been looking after some under tens and under nines so I’m doing a bit of coaching in that respect.
"I do watch football as much as I can and I keep in touch with a lot of people around the non-league scene and look after Bacup Borough’s website.
"I go and watch as much as I can.
"I’d like to watch Stanley a bit more but now it’s obviously more difficult to watch them, particularly away because they travel so much but I probably should come back more than I do to be honest."
