Chorley fell to a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home against Warrington Town on Saturday afternoon at Victory Park.

The Yellows had the first big chance of the game, Connor Woods hitting his shot on target but Matt Urwin was equal to it.

It didn’t take long for the visitors to hit the front though, only a minute later Woods and Isaac Buckley-Ricketts combining well before the former slammed home after jinking past Mark Ellis to get his shot off.

Chorley’s only opportunity before the break fell to Louis Britton, whose shot found the hands of Tony Thompson after Jack Sampson’s flick on fell nicely into his path.

Adam Henley very nearly got the Magpies back on term on the hour mark, his effort scrambled off the line by Peter Clarke.

The Magpies huffed and puffed in search of an equaliser and were very, very unfortunate not to get back on terms in the dying minutes - Jack Sampson blocking Tony Thompson’s goal-kick, then playing in Carlton Ubaezuonu but a Warrington defender was on hand to save his keeper’s blushes.
