American TV star Jesse McClure, from hit shows Storage Hunters and Storage Hunters UK, is encouraging young fans to get behind his adopted UK “soccer” club, Accrington Stanley.
Throughout February accompanied under-12s will receive a free limited edition talking Jess McClure doll worth £10 when they watch home games for free at the Wham Stadium. Sporting an Accrington Stanley-badged shirt under his trademark leather jacket, the plush doll speaks five phrases including “Accrington Stanley, the club that wouldn’t die!” and “Fight on Accy Stanley, never say die!”.
“Since working over here I’ve become a big fan,” said Jesse. “It’s my nature to side with the underdog and I love everything about the club – its fantastic history, the way it’s fought against the odds to survive, and most of all its army of fans. That’s one army I’m happy to enlist in!”
