During the 2011–12 season, Accrington Stanley F.C. competed in League 2. This was their 6th season in the Football League and 14th was their second highest position.

It was a year of transition for Stanley with long serving manager John Coleman and his assistant Jimmy Bell leaving the club to join League One side Rochdale.[1] Former player Paul Cook was appointed the new manager[2] with his assistant being Leam Richardson, who was caretaker manager in the intervening spell.[3]

The end of the season saw chairman Ilyas Khan step down. He said he had been racially abused since taking over the club in March 2011.[4]

Stanley also made the news in October 2011, when on-loan defender Tom Bender was knocked out in a collision with team mate Ian Dunbavin and Tranmere Rovers striker Lucas Akins in a Football League Trophy tie. Consequently, the game was abandoned with Tranmere leading 2-1. Bender was treated for 30 minutes on the pitch before being taken to hospital where he regained consciousness and made a full recovery.[5]
