Accrington Stanley sign up Muslim Defence League Member?

I don’t follow these matters, but I see from the Muslim Defence League (MDL) Facebook site, that someone named Amir Ronaldo Skeenz claims that he will be making his debut for Accrington Stanley Football Club this Wednesday. Is that a real name? Is this true? If so, will there be any EDL members to give him an appropriate ‘welcome’ when he takes to the pitch? As you can see from his Facebook profile, it seems that he might suffer from a just touch of narcissism. Can you imagine the furore if an Accrington Stanley player (or a player from any other club for that matter), declared himself to be a supporter of the EDL? Are you going to let the club know what you think about this new player’s unsavoury off-pitch activities?

Thankfully, this seems to have been a wind-up by the improbably-named Amir Ronaldo Skeenz, as contributors to the comments section affirm, and this squad list suggests.


  1. I suspect its a load of nonsense, although i'm no expert on footballism. Odd that a potential pro (or semi-pro) player would have a film like Green Street on their profile when the sport has worked so hard to distance itself from the type of things that film presents. If its all true i'll quote from the old milk advert; 'Accrington Stanley, who are they?'

  2. Whoever he is, I can assure you he's not a Stanley player, and won't be playing for us at all. Also, we don't have a match on Wednesday.

    Hope this helps!

  3. Thank you StanleyFan and Cygnus for your thoughts. This Skeenz character struck me as rather suspect from the start.
