WE’RE thrilled to have Liam Birchall, Mike Calveley & Justin Johnson all signed up at the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium for the new campaign.
The lads join already contracted Matt Urwin, Scott Wilson, Adam Blakeman, Billy Whitehouse Joe Nolan, Will Tomlinson, Ollie Shenton, Harrison Kay, Jack Sampson & Harry Scarborough in the Magpies squad ahead of 2023/24 – further first team announcements will be coming up very shortly.

The gaffer on Liam Birchall..
Liam was signed off the Education Programme last summer and did really well out on loan in the NWCFL. He played a full season for AFC Blackpool, showing his adaptability, and he can definitely kick on again this season.

The gaffer on Mike Calveley..
Calvs was the team’s most consistent performer last season, putting in so much unselfish work for the team. It’s really great to have him on board once more for next season.
Justin takes on Leamington (Stefan Willoughby)
The gaffer on Justin Johnson..
Justin showed glimpses of quality last season and his confidence started to grow towards the end of the campaign. He’s only going to get better, which is hugely exciting for us heading into 2023/24.
We’ve also added two more of our talented youngsters to the first team ranks ahead of 2023/24 – Daniel Price-Jordan & Sully Barker join Harrison Kay as graduating scholars from our Education Programme who are continuing their football development with the Magpies.
The gaffer on Daniel & Sully..
PJ has done really well this year and had trials at both Wolves and Huddersfield. He’s come through the academy and then the education programme and has fully earned his contract for next season.
Sully is a horrible player to play against, never giving defenders a minute off. He’s strong and skillful, creates and scores. Another to come through the academy and education programme. Fully deserving of a deal, just like PJ and Harrison Kay.
