Chorley 2 Bradford Park Avenue 1

Chorley came from behind to beat Bradford Park Avenue in front of a Boxing Day crowd of more than 1,200.

Chorley started well against struggling but Bradford opened the scoring with a goal mid-way through the first half and the Magpies went in for the interval a goal behind.

However a strong start after the break was followed by two strikes from Josh Hine ensured the festivities continued in the club after the game.

Just after the hour mark Harry Winter came on for Lynch and soon after he set up the first goal, running from the half way line with the ball he released Hine with a perfect pass and the striker blasted the ball under goalkeeper Danby Later, a Mark Ross cross into the box was helped on by Teague and Hine’s flicked effort flew in to win the game.

With the eagerly anticipated FA Trophy tie with FC United of Manchester now less than two weeks away, the club can confirm that match day arrangements that will be in place for this game.

As with the FC Halifax Town and Stockport County games earlier in the season, it is unfortunate but the club will be employing a ‘soft-segregation’ policy for the match.

This decision has been made to ensure spectator safety.

Due to the limited amount of space available along the Ashby Street side of the ground, the segregation is being used entirely to prevent a potential ‘crush’ situation arising if large numbers of supporters from both sides attempted to change ends at any stage during the tie.

‘Soft-segregation’ means that stewards will be policing the areas of the ground where supporter’s areas meet as both clubs agree there is no need for physical barriers between the two sets of friendly fans.

Chorley supporters will enter the ground as normal via the Duke Street end turnstiles.

FC United fans will be housed in the Pilling Lane end of the stadium and will have access to a limited number of seats in the main stand.
