 CHORLEY FC’S Ken Wright has seen it all from being a player, manager and chairman - but now he believes the glory days are coming back to Victory Park.

Garry Flitcroft’s side edged one step closer to back-to-back promotions by potentially setting up a home play-off final after a convincing 3-1 win over Bradford Park Avenue.

Chorley welcome FC United of Manchester in the first semi-final on Saturday afternoon at 3pm and Wright believes that Chorley have enough in their locker to book their place in the final.

He said: “We have had two great seasons even if we don’t get promoted because there have been some successful performances at this higher level.

“It is happy days for the club and long may it continue.

“We certainly have the fan base to be in the Conference as well as the potential and a great manager to take us forward.

“The fans have been great and we want them to come out just like they did last season for the game against AFC Fylde.”

Chorley held their 200 club raffle on Friday where their new sponsor was revealed.

Wright praised the local businesses for their support.

He believes that the Magpies will not be taking their opponents for granted at the weekend.

He said: “Anything can happen in these one-off games and we are delighted to be here.

“We know whoever we face will be a difficult challenge.
