In partnership with Chorley FC we’re delighted to announce the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium will play host to a charity game this summer in honour of James Dean.
The match, taking place on Sunday, August 8, will pit a Chorley Old Boys side (featuring members of the 2014 NPL title-winning squad) against a Halifax Old Boys side for the James Dean Memorial Trophy – in what we’re sure will be a great summer occasion and a fitting way to remember Deano.
” It’s an honour for us to be able to support the event and to give everyone the opportunity to commemorate the life of Deano. We hope the event will give his boys, family and friends a chance to see that the admiration for Deano extends far and wide – Jamie Vermiglio (Manager, Chorley FC)
As well as the Old Boys game the afternoon will feature live music, food & drink, an auction, Leeds United legend Eddie Gray as guest speaker, a bouncy castle, facing painting and loads more (as long as covid restrictions have been eased further).
Keep an eye out over the coming days and weeks for loads more information about the event, including manager and player announcements, kit launch, ticket options and additional fundraising initiatives.
