Chorley have thanked the fans and local businesses who supported their ‘family day’ at Victory Park on Saturday to help raise funds for Children In Need.

Nearly 800 supporters turned out to see the Magpies beat Premier Division rivals Matlock Town 2-0 in the FA Trophy’s Third Qualifying Round with a range of entertainment laid on for younger fans including a free bouncy castle slide.

Local lad and professional boxer Jack Catterall was also praised by Chorley Director Glenn Hutchinson after the 20-year-old unbeaten light welterweight accepted an invitation to attend the tie and lend a hand supporting the club's efforts for the annual TV appeal.

Hutchinson said: “We are supporting all the other sports in the area and were delighted to have Chorley's newest national boxing talent Jack Catterall in attendance for our FA Trophy victory.

“I would also like to thank Chris Morris and Aaron Turner of Big Bouncy Adventures who gave up their time to come and put up their slide for the day, free of charge, to support the club’s family fun day.

“Also Jonathon Watkinson, who spent all week working hard to help Saturday’s success, Henry Morris from Morris’ of Coppull for donating the bread for the hot dogs that were given to youngsters and Batleys of Preston who donated all the sweets to hand out to the children.”

Catterall said: “I loved getting involved in the community because they support me so well. When I found out I could come and meet Pudsey Bear and support the Magpies I was delighted to accept the kind invitation.”
