Club Information
 History of the Club
In 1933 the Chorley Sunday League became the Chorley Alliance League and a Charnock Richard village team was entered, but on the outbreak of the Second World War the league and team were temporarily suspended. At the end of the War, in 1945, the Chorley Alliance League was reformed along with Charnock Richard F.C. The team proved to be a tremendous success, eventually winning the league title in the 1947/48 season, losing only two games, and scoring 107 goals. This success prompted them to try and run two teams, but they ran into difficulties and the club closed at the end of the 1948/49 season.

In 1955, under the leadership of Ron Wilcox, the present club was reformed, and once again played in the Chorley Alliance League.

In 1957 they moved to the Preston & District League, where they have spent most of their time, apart from a brief flirtation with the Bolton Combination. In the Preston & District League they were soon amongst the honours, beating English Electric in 1957/58 to take the Guildhall Cup. Success also came in this competition in seasons 1963/64, 1968/69, and more recently in 1992/93. A number of league championships have also come their way, including winning the Premier League in 1989/90.

The 1967/68 season saw the village team take the Lancashire Amateur Shield, beating Vickers Sports Club from Barrow after a replay. Further success came in the Shield in seasons 2001/2 and 2006/7.

In 1993 the club moved to the West Lancashire League, and since then both the First and Second teams have gained promotion to the top division of their respective sections. They have also been successful in the West Lancashire League, winning the Premier Championship twice in seasons 1997/98 and 2003/04. They also won the Richardson Cup in 2001/02, and again in 2003/04. Numerous other honours have also come their way over the years including two recent Goldline Trophy victories at Bolton Wanderers Reebok Stadium.

The club has however kept its links with the Preston & District League, they have a Third team and Veterans team playing in the league. The three senior teams are now referred to as the First team, Reserve team, and A team, and a number of junior teams play in the Central Lancashire Juniors League, Mid Lancs Colts League and an under 18s teams playing in the Lancashire Sunday League.

The club moved to Mossie Close in Charter Lane in 1968, after playing elsewhere in the village, and the adjoining club house was opened in 1988. A new ground has recently been developed on the opposite side of Charter Lane, to be known as Mossie Park, which now stages West Lancashire League games.

Since 1955 the teams colours have always contained green.

Club colours at present are - Green or Green and White hooped shirts, black shorts, green stockings.
