A firms of bailiffs have bought 10 shares in Accrington Stanley.
And, after the club faced a winding up order in 2009 with the bailiffs banging at the Crown Ground doors, chief executive Rob Heys joked: "It’s nice to have the bailiffs come round and we didn’t have to hide our possessions or hide behind the desks!"
Rossendale’s Limited have bought shares in the Reds and Julie Green-Jones said: "We have purchased shares in Stanley because many of our staff and clients are footballing fans.
"Every football fan has heard of Accrington Stanley wherever they may be in the world. It’s great to see them holding their own in League Two.
"We are proud to get behind Accrington Stanley and hope this encourages other businesses to follow suit and support their local team"
"It’s a great "little" club, hopefully with the investments that shareholders are making, it can help progress the club up the football league."
Shares are still available, priced at £100 each.
