A wet and windy day saw Phil Callander's Chorley team up against a strong Blackpool team who were one of the favourites to win the league.

Through injuries and illness there was many changes and with only 14 players but this seemed to give Chorley the incentive for doing something special.

Before the game Blackpool were very confident and were saying they were going to destroy Chorley in the first ten minutes with there young fast backs against this ageing team, which was a mistake as this antagonised an already focused team But no one could predict what was going to happen next as John jackson took the kick off and went piling through the Blackpool defence and scored straight away, and Blackpool were knocked for six straight off.

Then as Blackpool were trying to regroup, captain Phil Callander and Chris Reed, combined for reed to score in the corner, then straight after that the captain himself got on the scoresheet with an amazing side step which sent Blackpool's full back flying and ran in from half the length of the pitch.

Simon Frost was in inspirational form with boot and hands with 11 conversions altogether and he ran in from half way line to score first of his three tries.

At half-time Blackpool were 55 points down, and as the second half started, centre and debutant Daniel Farrow scored a quickfire brace of tries showing a lot of power and guile.

Chris Reed got his second try, and then the floodgates opened Chris Cowling, Steve Ashcroft, Martin Riley twice, Steve Handsford, Jordan Jones with his first try for Chorley, Geoff Fielding and Rick Whitehead on his debut all scoring.

In total eleven players scored, while Blackpool got a consolation try late on.

Dave Martin nearly scored a lot of tries but didn't get one.

Speaking after after the match captain Phil Callander said: "I'm in shock. I've never won by that many points before. It was amazing. with eleven players scoring.

"We were so up for it today, Simon Frost was the pick, not just with a hat-trick and eleven conversions but his all round play.

"It was good for Jordan Jones to get his first try and Dan Farrow was excellent, it was a shame Dave Martin didn't score as he deserved it,and Martin Riley is holding the back line together and is an inspiration. I was glad to score my first try of season as well.

"Rugby doesn't get better than this."
