Preview: Chorley v Moors

We turn our attentions to Tuesday evening’s action with a full and in-depth preview of Moors’ National League North trip to Victory Park.

Chorley v Spennymoor Town
Tuesday 8th November 2022, 7.45pm
National League North
Victory Park

In Opposition
It was a summer of change at Victory Park as long-serving boss Jamie Vermiglio moved on and they appointed Andy Preece as his successor.

Preece had been part of the staff at the club since 2018 and had most recently been in the Director of Football role before being handed the reins following Vermiglio’s departure.

Like Moors, Chorley have had a pretty inconsistent opening to the current campaign – they remain unbeaten on home soil but have picked up points in just three of their eight games on the road.

Their last outing at Victory Park was an enthralling 4-3 triumph over Farsley Celtic but they were unable to build on that at the weekend when two late goals consigned them to defeat at Southport.

One To Watch
Connor Hall has been a reliable source of goals for Chorley since joining the club permanently in 2020 following a successful loan spell from Woking.

The 24-year-old forward caught the eye whilst playing for Ascot United and earned a move to Sheffield United in December 2015 before switching to Bolton in 2017 where he made his professional debut.

Hall has been in good form for The Magpies so far this season and has already hit the net eight times in National League North so Moors need to be on red alert at Victory Park tonight.

Head To Head
The two sides met three times last season and Moors enjoyed victory on each occasion, winning 2-0 home and away in the league, whilst also triumphing on penalties in the FA Trophy.

The Magpies’ most recent win over Moors came back during the 2019/20 campaign when they progressed in the FA Cup thanks to a 2-0 victory on home turf.

On The Whistle
Michael Crusham will be the man in the middle at Victory Park this evening, and he will be assisted by Jonathan Wyatt and Joe Cunningham.
