Bank Holiday non-league round-up

First published in Chorley FC

CHORLEY charged right back into the Evo-Stik League Premier Division promotion picture as they rocked play-off rivals Marine to start 2012 with a bang.

The Magpies travelled to College Road for their Mersey mission fully aware that a defeat could have dealt their hopes a major blow.

But Tom Ince (20) gave them an ideal start, although the prolific Neil Harvey levelled from the spot for Marine three minutes before the break.

Steve Foster restored Chorley’s advantage from the penalty spot on 53 minutes only for Aaron Rey to fire Marine level.

But two goals in a minute won the match for Garry Flitcroft’s men as Mark Ross (71) and Chris Denham (72) found the net to cheer the travelling fans.

It was also a day to remember for Clitheroe in the Evo-Stik League as they came from behind to beat Harrogate Railway Athletic 3-1 at Shawbridge.

Carl Garner’s men, playing their second game in 48 hours after their Saturday loss at Durham, were on the back foot from the moment Jon Maloney put the Yorkshire outfit ahead on 14 minutes.

But Marcus Calvert grabbed his first for the Blues on 75 minutes and then the prolific Ashley Parillon put Clitheroe ahead on 86 minutes from the penalty spot.

And then in stoppage time Parillon grabbed his second and Clitheroe’s third to win the match.

In the North West Counties League Ramsbottom United were sent crashing to a shock loss at Squires Gate as Ben Fishwick’s goal stunned the locals.

And it was a bad day for Padiham as they went down heavily to Silsden.

But the result of the day belonged to AFC Darwen.

Kenny Langford’s Salmoners, without a win since October, were handed the horrid start to the New Year with the long trip up the M6 and along the A590 to Barrow for their game at Holker Old Boys.

But they had a day to remember as they crushed Holker 7-0.

Stephen Lee bagged a brace with Anthony Hodges, Gary Brown, Jonathan Aspden, Johnathan Hession and Ben Stanford scoring the others to make it a great journey back for the locals.

The weather also had its say with Colne’s big North West Counties League local derby with Barnoldswick Town postponed because of a waterlogged XLCR Stadium pitch.

And it was a similar story at West View as Bacup Borough’s home clash with AFC Blackpool went the same way. And Nelson’s first game since the death of Jason Powrie was also a victim of the weather.

Gareth JonesRovers Fans Showing Support to Chorley F.C's fight against administration
Can I please appeal to all Rovers fans to read and share!!

This weekend we are playing away at Newcastle, I know a large number of fans will be travelling to the game, for those who aren’t, I wish to re-highlight the plight of Chorley FC, currently managed by Rovers legends Gary Flitcroft, and Matt Jansen who also still plays for the club.
Chorley FC are in danger of entering administration due to no fault of the owners, chair, or board, a full police investigation is underway, as this well run clubs funds have been stripped from within, and are in desperate need of extra gate receipts and extra funds, and revenue. Between myself, Glenn, and Mark we have set aside this weekend’s game at Chorley and are hoping to take a large number of fans along to hopefully help to save a great little grass roots club from the banks, a club that Gary & Matt have worked so hard for up to now, and have been achieving great things.
I know our club has its own difficulties, as they are well documented, although sometimes I think we forget what football is all about, for us younger generation it was about the days your parents took you to your first game in the 70’s or 80’s, that buzz you felt, that passion for something you never previously knew existed, the players, playing for a badge, for each other, not mercenaries paid hundreds of thousands of pounds a week, real football, and for the older generation the days that football meant something, a passion passed down through generations.
Well let me tell you these guys at Chorley FC are playing for each other, they play for their fans, and they play for a badge, the fans are ardent football people, from the ground up, to the board, they all work for one another, and it should serve as a reminder to us all that football has lost its meaning, yet it still exists in its rawest of forms to those who want to see what it’s really about, and when these type of teams need support, I think we should be jumping in and saying that yes, for just one weekend it would be great to take some premiership money down the leagues, and also to show the media that not all our a fans are to be stereotyped by the media and other clubs after what happened against Bolton.
We are hoping to have details of coaches leaving Ewood on Saturday which will be around £3.00 return to the ground, we want as many fans to come along and pay on the gate at CFC as we can, to help save this club. Also I know money is tight to a lot of people but we are planning to donate what we can per head once in the ground, if it’s a quid it’s a quid if it’s a tenner then great, everything we can do would help.
Below is a link to the event site (please sign in and confirm attendance) also we have links to the paypal site to those who just wish to donate, anyone who does donate, CFC wish you to provide your name and address and everyone will be personally thanked for their contribution, finally there is a link to the SAVE CFC page.

Thanks guys, anything anyone can do to help would be awesome, don’t forget Flitty and Jansen will be there on the day too with us.
