Site History

historySt Georges Park is one of the former homes of Chorley FC before they acquired Victory Park where they currently play.

Chorley Football Club is one of the oldest in the country. Dating from 1875, the Club first played at the Dole Lane ground, albeit as a rugby football club for the first eight or nine years of its existence. Dole Lane remained home for 25 years.

After being evicted from there in 1904 the Magpies, as they were christened courtesy of their black and white strip, relocated to nearby St. George’s Park in September 1905 where supporters rallied round and held a bazaar to clear debts and raise money for a new ground. St Georges Park had been the ground of local rivals Chorley St. George who had recently disbanded.

The first game versus Bacup Borough attracted 1,500 spectators. In September 1920, Chorley opened a new ground in Duke Street, just yards away from the earlier two grounds which has been their home ever since.
In later years the ground was used by the town as a football and sporting ground before it fell out of use.
