ACCRINGTON Stanley are on song for a successful season after a rocking duo's anthem proved a huge hit with fans.
Cart On Stanley, written by Accrington band Celtic Cross, has been raising the roof at the Fraser Eagle Stadium over the past few weeks, being played over loudspeakers both before and after the match.
Band members Mark Fox and Ian Guy, who sing and play guitars, have been writing and performing for more than a decade.
They have both been diehard Stanley supporters since they moved from Clitheroe to Hyndburn as teenagers.
Mark said: "One of the main reasons we decided to write the song was to celebrate Stanley's return to the Football League after 44 years. The chorus part just came to me straight away.
"It has been very popular and a lot of people from the fans' websites have been saying how much they like it. We want Accrington Stanley to have the best soundtrack in the country."
The duo are looking to produce an EP entitled Stanley's Back, which will include the song, as well as two other football-themed songs, Stanley's Back and I Love The Smell of Accy in the Morning.
Mark said the unusual title of the last song was a joke based around the film Apocalypse Now which has the famous line: "I love the smell of napalm in the morning."
There will also be a fourth track on the EP called Poundland which will appear on the band's upcoming fourth album Nah Think On.
The CD priced at £3 will soon be available at Stanley's club shop.
