It shows just how far we’ve come as a club in recent years that our local game over Christmas and New Year is now Wrexham in the National League. It’s a big game for both clubs, as the return game at Victory Park will be in just over a week. Both clubs are battling to move away from the bottom part of the table and that always adds something to a game. We’ve been in decent form over the last half dozen games in the league and we’re looking for that to continue  – Jamie Vermiglio


What are we wearing: Our third kit of yellow shirts and grey shorts/socks from Macron Store Cheshire; sponsored by Frederick’s Ice Cream, Massa’s Desert-Café Bar, Derian House, Chorley Group & Euxton Hall Hospital.
