Only seven days until the start of the new season

There is now just a week to go until we kick-off our 2012/13 Evo-Stik League season at Stocksbridge Park Steels, so here is the first of a few Chorley FC facts...

SEVEN years ago we kicked off our UniBond League Divison One season away to Eastwood Town and recorded a thumping four-nil win with goals from Peter Wright, Chris McGrath, Gary Martindale and John Bluck and the line-up that day included a youthful Jamie Vermiglio!

Let’s hope for more of the same next week!
