CLUB STATEMENT | UNDER 21's FIXTURE v WIGAN ATHLETIC

CHORLEY Football Club would like to make the following statement with regards to last night’s U21 friendly against Wigan Athletic U21's.

The game was not originally intended to involve first team players for either side and was arranged as a behind closed doors friendly.

Chorley FC have completed their pre-season competitive fixtures and the first team were training as normal on Tuesday evening.  There was never any intention of it being a first team game with the season less than a week away.

On social media and in some reports the game has since been labeled as a Chorley FC first team fixture, this was never the case, however Wigan did opt to field players with first team and international experience.

We hope this clarifies the situation.
