TODAY’S game with Boston United has been postponed due to a frozen pitch at the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium.

Unfortunately, with temperatures dropping to -4 by 3:30am the pitch was in an unplayable condition by the time it was inspected earlier this morning.

A huge thank you to groundsman Cal for tending to the pitch all night in an attempt to get the game on and to everyone who helped with the covers yesterday. A new date for the match will be announced shortly.

Boston United (

  • Founded 1933
  • Manager Ian Culverhouse (since September 2022)
  • This season 19th in Vanarama National League North (26pts from 26 games)

Back in August

Our first win of the 2022/23 season – and an emphatic one at that. Jon Ustabaşı (2), Connor Hall & Billy Whitehouse on target during the 4-1 win over in Lincolnshire. Jordon Crawford hit a late consolation for the hosts in front of 1,334 supporters.
