The Magpies dropped a low-key encounter with Wigan’s under-23 squad, as preparations for the Vanarama National League kick-off continued at Victory Park.

Ollie Crankshaw scored Wigan’s first half goals as the visitors hit quickly on the break. The closest Chorley came to a goal was a long range effort from Jake Cottrell which deflected over for a corner.

Charlie Jolley added to the Latics’ lead with the final goal of the match five minutes into the second half, after Adam Blakeman’s mistake allowed the forward to confidently finish off a right wing cross.
