PRIVATE DONOR PROVIDES FUNDS TO RAISE THE ROOF!

The club are delighted to announce that thanks to a generous private donation we now have the funds to begin work on replacing the Duke Street end stand roof. The fan, who wishes to remain anonymous, made the donation after admitting he was impressed by the club’s progress.

Earlier in the season, fans had raised concerns about the lack of cover with the winter months approaching. But since receiving the donation, we hope work will start as soon as possible. As well as the roof, a provision has also been made to build a new disabled viewing platform.    

Secretary Graham Watkinson said: “It was a real surprise when the fan came forward. He has watched Chorley all his life, showing interest about the roof and always asked questions. He approached myself and the chairman Ken Wright and said he liked what was happening at the club and that he was prepared to make a donation.”

The Duke Street stand, which is behind the goal near the social club, has been an open terrace since the roof was removed in the summer. More than £7,500 was raised by the Crowd Funder last season to help cover the costs of the removal. But a further £35,000 was needed to help build and erect a new roof. However, since the donation it means the club can now invest the money in other areas including the squad.

Chairman Ken Wright said: “Quite a lot of work is being done at cost price, businesses can’t do these things for free but they are getting behind the club and helping us out. The donation completely covers the cost of everything, meaning the FA Cup prize money can be invested in different areas of the club. We won’t be closing the stand either, it will be open on match days and it will be safe for all fans to use. Some of the work is also being completed by volunteers, but we’re always on the lookout for any extra pair of hands. A brief discussion was held with the owners at Victory Park Holdings and they were more than happy for the work to take place.” 

One change in the new structure brings is that it will require considerably fewer stanchions to support the roof, meaning a better viewing experience for everyone. There is also the potential for new crush barriers to be installed on the Duke Street terrace in the future that will help boost the capacity of Victory Park by close to 1000. Without this donation the process of re-covering the Duke Street end would have taken much longer. On behalf of everyone at the club, especially the supporters who will benefit by staying dry, the club would like to officially thank the benefactor whilst recognising his wish to remain anonymous.
