With just six games of the 2013/2014 season remaining it is getting to that time where awards are being handed over to various players and teams. It’s not just the players who get an award at Chorley Football Club as the “Community Award” returns for the second year. The winner of the first award was Josh Vosper due to his commitment with being club photographer, more about his award was presented at the Awards evening hosted by the football club.

The nominations for this years award are:

James Wilson (AFC Chorley) – AFC Chorley was started three years ago in order to build bridges between Chorley and Chester, approved to show that there was no bitter rivalry off the main football field. Most Saturday mornings James manages to get a full team together to face other supporters from teams all up the football pyramid. Giving youngsters a chance to play each week, information pills making Chorley Football Club proud by wearing their colours with pride. AFC Chorley also won the IFA League Team of The Year Award in their first full season, all thanks to James!

Ian Livesey (MagpieWatch) – A lot of you will already know what MagpieWatch is and what a viable service that it has become for those Magpie supporters that can’t make it to watch Chorley in action. Supplying voice commentary via an online radio, along with Twitter updates from Oliver Smith, MagpieWatch is a needed service for those exiled supporters.

Cath Still (Away travel) – At the start of the season Chorley Supporters Trust agreed to put on an away coach for every away game and that is exactly what we have done. Cath has taken charge of this and with her eagerness it has become a success. With The Magpies doing well this season the away support has increased, meaning more than one coach has had to be put on.

Paul Metcalfe (Fan links) – Chorley Football Club pride themselves on being a family friendly club. Part of this comes from communicating with rival supporters which is exactly what Paul Metcalfe did. Our trophy games against Tamworth and Forrest Green Rovers where games in which Paul went onto their forums and made them feel very welcome to Victory Park, making sure they all knew what a friendly club we are.
