Visit the FA Full-Time website for the latest results & fixtures and league table of the Chorley FC Under 21's/Development Squad and click here for the player profiles.


While the senior squad make the relatively short journey to Curzon Ashton on Saturday, the Development Squad travel across The Pennines to face RIASA West.

The junior Magpies played the Leeds-based USA college team under the floodlights at Victory Park back in September with the home side running out 2-1 winners.  Since then, the Chorley youngsters have continued their unbeaten run and currently sit at the top of the Galaxy Lancashire League West with a maximum eighteen points from their six games played. 

According to non league expert Simon Sandiford (@simonupnorth) the Development Squad is one of just ten North West based clubs all the way from the Premiership down to Step 26 of the football pyramid who have won every single game so far this season.

Whilst the lads will be wanting to maintain that unenviable record, RIASA will want to climb the table, currently in eighth place, with seven points from five games so far. A mix of results have seen the Americans win two, draw one and lose two of their matches.

With a number of the Under 21s out on loan to continue their development, the squad tomorrow will see a mix of existing squad members, new signings and the promotion of one of the Under 18s to the 21s.

The match, which will take place on 3G at the Westwood Hall Conference Centre and Hotel in Leeds, kicks off at 2pm.  See the squad line up, half time and full time scores on our twitter feed at @Chorley_FC_U21


Following an approach by Colne FC, Harry Pratt has today signed a contract with the East Lancashire Club.

We would like to wish Harry, who has recently been on loan at Mossley FC, the very best for the future.

PLAYER UPDATES | Squad Members Out On Loan

Such is the quality of players in each of this year’s Development Squads, that many of the older players have either already gone out on loan to other clubs in the area, or are due to be loaned out.

This is to help them in their development plan with the Magpies by gaining valuable experience playing regular football within a first team environment.

Since the beginning of the season, the lads have played only a handful of Lancashire League games due to unforeseen postponements and they understandably want to be playing competitive matches.

Of the current Under 21s, the following players are currently loaned out:

Prescot Cables – Louis Coyne, Jordan Southworth

AFC Liverpool – Ryan Farnworth

Skelmersdale Utd – Jordan Darr, Tyler Rufus, Jack Lenehan

Mossley – Declan Evans

West Didsbury – Callum Darcy to go out on loan this week

Another four players are due to go out on loan next week.

The Development Squad managers regularly go out to watch the lads in action, keeping a close eye on those who have been identified as having the potential to develop their game further.  They also seek feedback from other club managers as to how the players perform in training and in competitive games, just as the Chorley Senior Squad management ask for updates as to how the lads are developing.

With a number of Under 21s out on loan, this paves the way for some of the shining lights from the Under 18s to be signed up, and four are due to put pen to paper at training on Tuesday.  This is in advance of the Under 21’s next scheduled league game, away to Leeds-based RIASA West, this Saturday KO 2pm.







POSTPONED | Development Squad v Ashton Athletic

After a pitch inspection at the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium this morning, we are sorry to announce that this evening's Lancashire League West game vs Ashton Athletic has been postponed.

The revised fixture will announced in the new year.

The next scheduled game for the U21s will see us travel to Lancaster City next Tuesday evening KO 19.45 where we will play the top placed side in the league in our last game of 2017.  A win would see us leapfrog the Dolly Blues to claim top place at Christmas.
