Chorley FC Xmas Draw
Club officials, you have an opportunity to participate in the Chorley FC Xmas Draw and make money for your club at the same time. Tickets for the draw cost £1.00 each and 60% of all money collected goes to the participating club with 40% going to Chorley FC. If 15 people from your club each sold 10 tickets each, your club would get £90.00 which is not to be sniffed at.
In previous seasons, many of our clubs have taken the opportunity to earn money for their club whilst supporting one of our local non-league clubs at the same time.
Derek Heighway will be at our meeting at Acregate Lane Labour Club on Monday 14 October to distribute ticket books to interested clubs. Derek is well known and highly respected in local football circles, he was the league secretary of the former Chorley Sunday League, many of whose clubs now play in our league.
This is an excellent way to raise money for your club without any outlay. If you want to take part, please call Derek Heighway on 07748 992081 and he will arrange delivery of the tickets and he will collect all the sold tickets at our Christmas League Meeting at Acregate Lane LC on Monday 16 December 2019.
Don’t forget to attend the Special General Meeting at Acregate Lane LC on Monday 14 October at 8.00pm.

Sir Tom Finney make progress in the LFA Sunday Trophy.
AC Preston (red & white) v Chipping - Youth Section 3
Harley Nelson (15) heads AC Preston into the lead
Twelve games played today of which seven were cup ties and that was a massive improvement on last Sunday’s return.
Sir Tom Finney had an LFA Sunday Trophy date with Cleveleys Town from division 1 of the Blackpool Sunday Alliance, they won 11-3 and their reward is a home tie against the holders Crown Paints from the Blackburn Sunday League.
Walton Athletics season gets better and better as they beat fellow division 1 side Fulwood Park Rangers 7-1 in the Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup, Penwortham Town had a 5-0 home win against Waverley Park and Walton-le-Dale United beat Wilbraham North End 5-1. Meanwhile in the LFA U18s Youth Cup, AFC Darwen beat Lostock St Gerards 5-3 and AFC Darwen Reds drew 3-3 with Read United but won the penalty shootout 5-4. Poulton travelled to Trawden Celtic and won 3-0.
Southport & Ainsdale Amateurs beat Theatre Boys 3-2 in the only premier division game to survive. Moor Park United beat Midgery Court 4-3 in division 3 and South Ribble DC beat Leyland 4-0. Two games in the youth section 3 saw Penwortham St Teresas win 6-1 at Fishwick Rangers and AC Preston drew 3-3 with Chipping at Preston’s College in a game which ebbed and flowed for 90 minutes.
After a quiet opening period AC Preston took the lead on 17 minutes with an excellent header from Harley Nelson. James Nichols levelled the scores on 36 minutes and Nichols was on hand a minute later to score again and put Chipping 2-1 ahead at the interval. Chipping’s Harry Bennett put his side 3-1 ahead when he scored after 52 minutes but the arrears were reduced less than a minute later when Connor Leadbetter scored for AC Preston to make it 2-3 and Adam Valli Carter netted the equaliser on 62 minutes to leave both clubs sharing the spoils.
This was a most enjoyable game to watch between two well-matched and well-disciplined sides who clearly enjoyed their football and full credit to the referee Russell Hayes who handled the game well.
