Chorley Magpies will be helped from a £10 million funding lifeline during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden has today announced that National League football clubs will receive the cash boost as part of a unique partnership with The National Lottery.

The support will benefit clubs such as Chorley FC, in the fifth and six tiers of English football, so that they can continue to play behind closed doors after the return of fans was paused due to rising infection rates.
