Chorley faced a very experienced Colne team containing quite a few first team players and with captain Phil Callander injured Chorley stalwart Steve Goodman took over the reigns.

The game started slowly with the strong Colne pack grinding down the Chorley scrum in the opening exchanges.

This Chorley team is full of resilient stuff with exceptional defence from forwards and backs the Chorley pack began to take control with goodman and Lyle Cairns leading from the front.

After a great break Rob Critchley sent in Steve Ashcroft to finish in the corner, while great positional kicking from Matt Bates kept Colne penned back.

In the second half Chorley would not give an inch with everyone tackling like demons and Ashcroft putting in some great hits in the centre.

With the forwards getting to every breakdown quickly, Colne were looking tired after everything they threw at Chorley.

In the dieng seconds Colne went over after tremendous pressure and was converted to make it 11-10, keeping Chorley fourth.

Captain Phil Callander said after the game: "This shows how good we are as a team. We were on the back foot a lot but this team plays for each other and everyone tackles like demons. It was a tremendous performance and Ste Goodman controlled the game excellently."
