AFC Fylde will play in the National League North next season, a division the Coasters were promoted from as champions in the 2016/17 season.


We take a look at next season’s opponents, as Jim Bentley and his side look to secure promotion back to the National League.

Our next team ‘under review’, is Chorley.


The Magpies

2019/20 League Position:

24th (National League)

Star Player 19/20:

Alex Newby – The talented attacking midfielder scored 6 goals as Chorley finished bottom of the National League table and has since earned a move to League One side Rochdale.


Jamie Vermiglio – A long time assistant manager of the club, Vermiglio became the firsts team manager with the Magpies in 2018 after the ressignation of Matt Jansen.

Last Played:

The last meeting between the sides was a lacklustre affair, with defences on top in a 0-0 draw at Mill Farm last August. Fylde had several great chances, the best of which fell to Kurt Willoughby but the Magpies held firm to earn a point.

Last Played Away: 01/01/17 – Chorley 1-3 AFC Fylde
