Accrington mock B team proposal
While the FA's announcement of their plans to introduce Premier League B teams to the Football League attracted a fair share of criticism, one existing club offered a mocking response.
Accrington Stanley, who finished 15th in League Two this season, took to the official Twitter account to reply to Greg Dyke's report - and made their own suggestion.
In 2016/17 we can achieve our dream... We'll finally be able to play Stoke City Reserves in the Football League...— Accrington Stanley (@ASFCofficial) May 8, 2014
To increase the number of English players in the top flight we're going to launch a B team & apply to join the Premier League— Accrington Stanley (@ASFCofficial) May 8, 2014
However, the club later confirmed the tweets were just a joke.
