THE early pre-season action continues later today when we travel a couple of miles to the south west of Chorley to play North West Counties outfit Charnock Richard at Mossie Park.
Once again, due to coronavirus, a game normally watched by 400+ fans has been whittled down to players and staff only. Keep the faith everyone, crowds will be allowed back eventually.
From last week – not a great deal. The first team continues with light training before a ramping up to normal pre-season levels towards the end of August.
Pre pre-season continues for Jamie Vermiglio and his backroom team – under-21s and trialists to watch over again following last week’s 2-1 win at Euxton Villa..
- Chorley XI from Lewis Dutton, Josh Agbozo, Jack Bainbridge, Paul Belinga, Leo Roberts, Matty Williams, Djordje Jankovic, Scott Wilson, Brandon Lee, Prince Mbengui, Joe Lynch, Mitch Glover, Noah Robson, Declan Baldwin, Oliver Putnam, Taylor Brickell, Malakai, Sope Awe and Josiah Bridgeman
Tonight is another chance to have a look at some of our talented under-21 players and a number of different trialist options before we add senior squad members into the mix. It’s really useful to have local sides of the standard that Charnock and Euxton are, allowing us to try out a range of player options against competitive opponents – Jamie Vermiglio
Last time we met
An entertaining pre-season friendly in July of last year which saw the Magpies prevail 2-1.
