🤔 Predictions



Chorley are one of our most frequently played opponents.

We’ve got many links with our friends from up the road….

If we look just at the first team we’ve played them 71 times, excluding the game in October 2020 which we won 1-0 because the season was cancelled and therefore it does not count.

Venue P W D L F A GD
Home 37 24 5 8 87 44 +43
Away 32 7 12 13 50 61 -11
Neutral 2 2 0 0 9 3 +6
Total 71 33 17 21 146 108 +38

The very first time we played them was on 29th September 1888 in our 5th ever game. We were obviously then known as Southport Central, and we won that one 6-0 at the Sports Ground on Sussex road which was our first ever ground.

If you want to know more about that game and our very first season, “The Town’s Game” is available to purchase from the club shop for £15. 

The last time we met was in March this year where we went down 2-1 at Victory Park, our goal came from Jordan Archer which came in the 8th minute and then we spent the rest of the game on the back foot. Chorley equalised after an hour and then we conceded in the 5th minute of injury time.

Man of the match that day was Cam Mason.

We have had so many players play for both clubs that we’d be here all night if we listed them. 

Probably easier just to say who’s in their current squad that we know…

The manager is obviously Andy Preece, then they’ve got Steve Drench as their number 2 keeper and GK coach, Mat Challoner and Adam Blakeman, Rhys Fenlon (on loan from Accrington), Jack Sampson and Andy Owens (who is on Dual reg from Macclesfield)

And obviously in our squad we’ve got Adam Anson and Marcus Carver who’ve both had spells at Chorley too.
