CHORLEY FC Supporters’ Club are hoping to attract programme and memorabilia collectors from across the country to their inaugural programme fair.

Taking place at the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League’s club on Sunday, April 14 between noon and 4pm, proceeds from the fundraising event will be split between the fans' group and children's charity Derian House.

Organiser and lifelong Magpies fan Matt Bagot said the cost to exhibitors taking stalls is £15 per pitch while visitors will be admitted for free and only encouraged to make a donation.

Matt, 43, said: “We’re really looking forward to the fair and hoping to attract people from far and wide.

“I’ve been collecting for years along with many others at the club who who have donated programmes.

“We now have a room at the club packed with programmes that we’re sure will be of great interest and help us raise funds for two great causes.”
