Chorley FC are absolutely delighted to announce we’ve named as best away day experience in step two of non-league football by the Football Supporters Federation.

The award is an extension of the organisation’s annual ‘Away Fans Matter Campaign’, which encourages clubs to make travelling supporters more welcome.

Away fans are vital to the health of the game and we want the award to encourage clubs to create a warm welcome for visiting supporters. Chorley were the winners at step two and in a tight contest visiting supporters praised the club and home fans for the welcome they received. On behalf of all those supporters who visited Victory Park this season we would like to thank the club staff and volunteers for their hard work and warm welcomeGarreth Cummins (National Game Network Manager, FSF)

The FSF recognises facilities and resources vary at the different levels of the game and considers nominations at each of the top four levels of the National League System. The nominations are assessed across a number of categories with a judging panel deciding the winning club at each level. The full list of 2019 winners are..

  • Step 1 – Harrogate Town (overall winner)
  • Step 2 – Chorley
  • Step 3 – Lewes
  • Step 4 – Ossett United

We can’t thank the FSF enough for this award as it just goes to show how much work and dedication everyone puts in on Victory Park match days. We welcome away fans with open arms and we’re looking forward to having a whole new set of visiting supporters coming to enjoy what Chorley FC has to offer next season in the National LeagueMark Norris (Chief Steward, Chorley FC)
