Very friendly and lively (atmospheric) ground.
There is a large partially seated stand, with very good views of the pitch. Sadly there are several pylons that do obscure the view. Don't be offended, as the directors have the same problem!
There is a large covered end terrace, which is set around 10 years away from the end of the pitch.
Otherwise it is a very pleasant ground to visit. The home winning 4-3 obviously made it, the more enjoyable.
Chorley FC are what one might expect in the 2nd tier of non-league football. The ground is looking tired but they don't have a very large fan base of regular supporters. As a OAP I only pay £12 to get in which seems reasonable. However with today's game being free due to it being re-arranged from a previously abandoned game, I would have expected more supporters. Perhaps the gloomy weather was a contributory factor. I will return.
Chorley originally played at Dole Lane (now the Coronation recreation ground), but moved to Rangletts recreation ground in September 1901. Victory Park was built adjacent to the recreation ground in 1919 and was opened in 1920. It was named Victory Park to commemorate the end of the First World War. The original grandstand was gutted by fire on 17 November 1945, just hours after an FA Cup tie against Accrington Stanley, with a new stand being built in May 1947 at a cost of £5,500.
Chorley's record attendance for a game at Victory Park is 9,679 for a FA Cup tie against Darwen on 15 November 1932.
