Over the past 12 months (with limited resources) groundsman Ben Kay has worked miracles on the Victory Park pitch, making the most of out-of-date equipment and sheer hard work to produce a pitch everyone associated with Chorley FC can be proud of. 

Looking ahead to the new season, and our first campaign in the National League for 29 years, we want to give the playing side of the club the best chance possible on all fronts. Through the Chorley FC Supporters Trust an appeal has been set up to raise funds to help purchase much-needed equipment, as we look to give Ben the tools to keep the pitch in pristine condition throughout the season.

Investment required includes:  

  • ride-on mower
  • trailer 
  • new cylinder mower
  • pitch renovation costs
  • contractor costs
  • essential seed and fertiliser

The overall costs of readying the Club for National League football are significant and we hope the Magpie Family will really get behind this campaign so Ben can take the Victory Park pitch to the next level.
