Accrington chief executive Rob Heys has thanked the club's Supporters' Fund for helping the League Two side pay its debts to the HMRC, but he does not believe the group gaining long-term shares in the club is a viable option.
Stanley were issued with a winding-up order earlier in the summer over an unpaid tax bill of £300,000, but the club have avoided the threat of closure by agreeing to pay back £25,000 a month and the Supporters' Fund have footed the bill for this month as the club survives without any income throughout the summer.
Heys said: "Essentially the Supporters' Fund want to put money into the club in exchange for shares long term, however, while this isn't currently an option that the club is looking to pursue, they have offered us an interest-free loan which is a fantastic gesture."
He added: "We will continue to work together to raise funds for the club, we are after all on the same side and we all want the club to do well."
