John Coleman is the third-longest serving manager in the professional game – behind Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsène Wenger – having first taken charge of Accrington Stanley in August 1999.

The club’s rise under his stewardship has been phenomenal, given their climb of three divisions from a Northern Premier League Division One side to an established npower League Two outfit.

The 2010/11 season saw Stanley achieve their highest ever league position when they finished fifth, thus qualifying for the end-of-season play-offs.

As a player, Coleman was a prolific nonleague marksman who turned out for Kirby Town, Burscough, Marine, Southport, Runcorn, Macclesfield Town, Rhyl, Morecambe and Lancaster City.
