Beattie pays Accrington's tax bill

James Beattie has paid Accrington Stanley’s tax bill out of his own pocket to save the League Two club from a transfer embargo.

Accrington have promised to pay Beattie back after he offered to foot the bill which is believed to run into tens of thousands of pounds.

The former England striker took over at the Crown Ground in May.

The FA would have hit Accrington with an embargo if they had failed to pay their debts, but Beattie was able to complete the signing of former Rangers forward Kal Naismith in time for last weekend’s televised game against Portsmouth.

The 35-year-old former Southampton striker, who cost a total of £15million in transfer fees during his career, admitted to cleaning the toilets before Accrington played his old club Everton in a pre-season friendly earlier this month.
