Partners Foundation Challenge Trophy Final: Tickets and Hospitality

TONIGHT: Pay on the gate for Chorley v Clitheroe at Macron Stadium

The final of one of our biggest county cup competitions is TONIGHT - so don't miss out!

Chorley v Clitheroe
Partners Foundation Challenge Trophy final
Macron Stadium, Bolton Wanderers FC
Monday 23rd April, 7.45pm KO

It’s a repeat of the 2014/15 final, which Chorley won 3-0.

The Magpies are the record 17-times winners of the Trophy and will be looking to make 2017/18 another successful season in the competition.

They have been one of the most dominant sides in recent years, and were back-to-back winners in 2014/15 and 2015/16.

Indeed, last year’s final, in which Ashton Athletic triumphed over Radcliffe Borough, was the first final not to feature either Chorley or AFC Fylde since 2009/10.

Southport won the Trophy that season, beating this year’s finalists Clitheroe.

The Blues are two-time winners, beating Barrow in 1984/85 and Kearsley in 1892/93, and have been runners-up five times in total.

The Partners Foundation Challenge Trophy final is one of the biggest dates on the Lancashire FA calendar – and whether you’re a fan of either team or a local follower of non-league football, it’s not one to be missed.
