Perfect Birthday Present For Ron

Chorley fan Ron Cole recently celebrated his 73rd birthday and received the perfect present - a 200 Club ticket writes Josh Vosper. 

Bolton born and bred, his introduction to football was mainly because of his father’s involvement of a boys’ team in the Bolton Boys Federation and going to Burnden Park as a youngster. Following University he started teaching and worked in education as a teacher for 30 years and enjoyed a further ten years as a Trade Union official for one of the teacher’s unions.

In 1986 Ron moved to Chorley with his wife Cath as they wanted their son James to go to Parklands High School. He said: “After school we had no idea that James would become a business entrepreneur by building his own company, Cruise 118 in Chorley, since sponsoring the Magpies and becoming director. Hence my involvement with the club. James and I have enjoyed times together watching Bolton, but there’s no better feeling than coming on Victory Park. The players are much more passionate and committed to the cause.”

He added: “Before my birthday this year, my wife asked ‘What do you want this year?’ and I could only think of one thing; so I asked her to buy me a golden ticket for the 200 Club. It’s a great scheme and watching Chorley has given me so much pleasure over the last few years. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the season and have every confidence Matt and the lads will gain promotion to the National League at the end of the campaign. Come on you Magpies!”
