HomeNewsClub News2017/18 RETAINED LIST


Chorley FC can confirm that our retained list for the 2017-18 season has been submitted to the Vanarama National League North. The entire squad has been offered new deals for next season with the exceptions of Jack Lynch and Adam Caunce who have both been released.

Matt Jansen and his management team have also been actively speaking to several players they have identified to strengthen for the new season as they look to take the team one step further. Talking about his plans, Jansen said: “We were all bitterly disappointed to have failed at the last hurdle after a successful season. We have spoken to all the lads and most have been retained on options, with Jason Walker still having 12 months on his contract. The rest of the squad have been made revised offers as we are looking to keep the core of the team together and maybe bring a few new faces to make us challenge at the top once again.”

He added: “We’d also like to hold onto the supporters who travelled to FC Halifax Town and backed the team throughout the play-off final. If we could replicate that inside Victory Park next season that would be fantastic. They got behind us last season and helped carry us over the line - which was incredible. Unfortunately we didn’t achieve our goal in promotion but everybody is already excited about starting pre-season again at the end of June. We’ve got a great dressing room and a fantastic bunch of lads. That’s something I’m passionate about as manager and we need the right lads to fit into our ethos.”

We would like to express our thanks to those players who will leave the club in the coming weeks and we wish them every success in the future. Season ticket news will be released soon.
