Chorley FC are delighted to announce the permanent capture of first choice ‘keeper Matt Urwin through to the end of the 2019/20 season.

An agreement has been reached with Fleetwood Town over the signing of the 25-year-old stopper, who’s made 80 appearances for The Magpies over 18 months and two loan spells, including 26 this season.

I have never played with a better group of lads or enjoyed my football this much so it was an absolute no-brainer to sign permanently. Fleetwood gave me a chance coming back from non-league and I’ll always be thankful to them for that, it just didn’t quite work out the way I wanted. Now I’m looking forward to the rest of the season and beyond. I think it would be a fantastic achievement to win this league and we just have to remain confident, keep doing what we’re doing and hopefully come the end of the season that will be enoughMatt Urwin

I’m delighted we’ve been able to sign Matt on a permanent basis. He has a good attitude, fits into our mould in terms of how determined, how loyal he is and how he has bought into the team spirit. The goals against tally is a lot to do with the team and he has certainly contributed to that with some fantastic goalkeepingJamie Vermiglio

Matt’s first game as a permanent player at Chorley FC is this Saturday when we host Nuneaton Borough in the Vanarama National League North (3pm).




Chorley FC is a non-league football club based in Lancashire, currently playing in the fifth tier of the English football pyramid.

Founded in 1875 as a rugby club before converting to football in 1883, The Magpies have played at their Victory Park home since 1920, reached the FA Cup Second Round twice and won a record 18 Lancashire FA Challenge Trophies.
