We bid a fond farewell to Billy Whitehouse
Published on  Updated on  

AFTER three seasons and almost 150 appearances in the Black and White stripes, Billy Whitehouse has decided now is the time to move on to pastures new away from Chorley FC.

Billy has played a significant part in our midfield since signing after a successful trial back in May 2021, notching a total of 13 goals as well as countless assists from out on the right wing.

His first hat-trick in senior football against Darlington back in November 2023 was a particular highlight for the club in our 2023/24 as well as a scintillating strike against Kettering in 2022/23 which will live long in the memory. 

As well as his ability on the pitch, Billy always has been a very popular character within the dressing room and will be sorely missed by many within the group.

Manager Andy Preece had this to say regarding Billy's departure,

"Billy has made the decision to move on this summer and first and foremost I would like to thank him for his contributions for the club this season and throughout his time at the club. Billy is not only a fantastic footballer but an outstanding character and I speak for everybody at the football club in wishing him nothing but the absolute best for the future in his career. Thank you, Billy."

Billy wishes to share the following message to our supporters too,

"It's been the best three years of my career both on and off the pitch! I've made friends for life and love everybody at the club. Now is the time for me to move on but Chorley will always have a special place in my heart!

I want to thank Jamie Vermiglio for signing me originally and to the gaffer and Ando for everything you have done for me, I am truly grateful, Billy."

Everybody at Chorley FC would like to wish Billy the very best for his future endeavours in his career. Thank you, Billy!
