Milking it with Asda & Accrington Stanley

April 23, 2018

Accrington Stanley won promotion from League Two for the first time in their history last week.

For the Asda news team, it was an opportunity that couldn’t be missed.

Paying homage to the classic 1980’s milk advert (“Accrington Stanley… who are they?!), we arranged for a team of Asda colleagues to head to the training ground to deliver 27 specially designed ‘Who are they?!’ Asda milk cartons.

The special delivery was warmly welcomed by Accrington Stanley players and staff who happily posed with (and then drank) the celebratory cartons.

Within hours of the delivery, media were lapping up the story with coverage landing on the BBC, The Sun (print and online) as well as plenty of sports sites including EuroSport and FourFourTwo.

Good luck to Accrington Stanley in League One next season!
