The Club will be holding a celebration of legendary record goal scorer Peter Watson’s career as part of a 1960s player reunion on Thursday, May 9 at Victory Park and we’re looking for help in tracking down some of Peter’s former teammates.
The night is being organised by the trustees of the Chorley FC Community Foundation and will be held in the 1883 Lounge between 6:30-8pm with Peter and his family in attendance.
It’s hoped the tribute will be the first step in relaunching the Chorley FC Former Players Association.
We’d love to hear from Peter’s former teammates or anyone who knows the whereabouts of any former Chorley FC players from between 1958/59 & 1965/66 seasons and thinks they might want to be involved with the celebration.
Please contact Community Trust vice-chair Keith McIntosh on 07842 276486 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
