Goals either side of the break ensured Chorley maintained a 100 percent pre-season record with a 2-0 victory at NPL Premier new boys Atherton Collieries.

Josh O’Keefe, making his first appearance of July, slid the visitors into a late first half lead after Elliot Newby had seen his earlier penalty saved.

The second half was only seven minutes old when Newby played a terrific one-two to free Trialist (7), who in turn made no mistake in pushing the game further into The Magpies’ grasp.
