Chorley 2-1 Bolton Wanderers 26/07/2014

Saturday July 26th, 3pm
Harold Taylor Memorial Trophy

Chorley lifted the Harold Taylor Memorial Trophy, beating a youthful Bolton Wanderers XI at the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium infront of 700 sun baked supporters.

The visitors, who despite being young were a very big, physical and strong side, opened the scoring on 20 minutes when the impressive Connor Wilkinson chipped Sam Ashton from 20 yards.

Chorley responded well with Mark Ross and James Dean twice and Jake Cottrell all going close but it was the Trotters who had the upper hand at the break.

After the restart both sides searched for a goal and Ross made an excellent blocking tackle inside his own area that sprung the counter attack they saw the scores levelled.

Harry Winter, with yet another impressive performance since his switch from Fylde, received the ball on the edge of the area and placed a curling chip over the keeper and into the far corner on 52 minutes.

Jack Dorney, impressive on the left flank, had a couple of good openings and there were shouts for a penalty following what appeared a clear foul on Dean, but the referee gave as so often he did the side from the higher level the benefit of the doubt.

With ten minutes remaining another new signing netted the winner when ex-Colwyn Bay defender Tom Smyth turned in a Dorney corner to see H’s trophy stay in Chorley.
