COMMUNITY | January Soccer School

Over ever-popular Soccer School took place recently with 70 children in attendance. Catering for boys and girls aged 5 to 12 years old, our holiday based courses are highly popular for children of all abilities.

Giving participants the chance to learn the fundamentals of the beautiful game, with professional coaches. Chorley FC provide a safe environment for children to learn new skills, improve technique whilst having lots of fun at the same time. We also offer specific goalkeeper sessions which take place at Southlands High School.

During the week the children made a special visit to Goodison Park, home of Everton FC. Orgainser David Murgatroyd said: “It was a fantastic occasion for all the children and coaches. We was looked after exceptionally well and I’d like to thank everyone at the club plus former director Andy Neild. Our lunch took place in the Brian Labone Lounge which was then followed by a trip round the megastore before finally meeting legend Ian Snowden. He was a wonderful man, who gave us a tour around the stadium before a question and answer session in the media room, which was enjoyed by everyone.”

He added: “It was a great trip and one the children will remember for a long time. Our Soccer Schools not only give our youngsters the chance to take part in physical activities during the school holidays, but help practice their football skills. It also gives them the opportunity to socialise with friends, and even interact and work together with new people from different schools or football teams.”

Don’t forget our next sessions take place during the start of January 2018. To book David on: 07804 145055 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

LATEST NEWS | Young fan raises money for charity

An amazing young Chorley supporter has raised nearly £700 in aid of a children’s charity. 12-year-old Caitlin Wakefield from Warrington set up a Just Giving page in October, with the aim to raise £100 for the Little Princess Trust, an organisation who provide wigs to children with cancer to help them cope when they lose their hair.

Young Caitlin decided she wanted to do something useful with her hair when she eventually got it cut, so decided to send it off to the Little Princess Trust after losing family members through cancer in the past. Ten days after setting up the Just Giving page, Caitlin had raised £687, nearly seven times her intended target. Caitlin’s mum Louise couldn’t believe how much they’d gone over their original aim of £100.

“It’s brilliant. The money raised has gone way over what we thought it would,” she said. “It’s especially amazing given how times are hard financially for most people at the minute, but that’s the power of social media.” Louise and her family, who have been coming to watch the Magpies for two years, explained how the idea came about.

“We took my son to his football match one afternoon, who funnily enough was taught by Jamie Vermiglio at school. Caitlin was talking to me about getting her hair cut and wanting to raise money for charity and one of the dad’s stood by the pitch just said he’d sponsor Caitlin. So it grew and grew from there and weeks later, she’d raised over £650. I’m so proud of her.”

A fantastic achievement Caitlin. Well done! If you’d like to donate visit: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jonathan-wakefield
