Director Jeremy Lee who organised the evening said: “This is a major milestone in the clubs history and we wanted to mark it in the most appropriate manner possible – by celebrating the achievements of all those how have made Chorley FC what it is today.
The club made presentations to their oldest living players and supporters and over 250 people attended.
To mark the event, perhaps the club's most famous son - former Ipswich Town, Arsenal and England strker, Paul Mariner sent a message of support. Mariner who now lives in America, was brought up in Chorley and started his career with his home town club and recalled how the club had stood by him in his first year despite a serious injury. Mariner wished the club, under current boss Gary Flitcroft, success in trying to win promotion back to the Football Conference.
An auction raised valuable funds for the club
