Chorley Ladies slumped to a shock defeat as they were dumped out of the FA Cup first round.

The ladies were thrashed 6-1 by Huddersfield Town on home soil in a game in which Chorley started brightly but struggled to take their chances which was to cost them the game.

The home-side looked good from kick off, with Natalie Parry once again showing her qualities as she latched on to a Ali Hindley cross.

But her volley was saved well by the Huddersfield keeper.

Despite the bright Chorley start, it was the visitors who took the lead against the run of play.

But Chorley fought back by continuing to pass the ball, which led to a deserved


A patient build-up saw Hindley latch on to a through ball before delicately lobbing the Town goalkeeper.

The second half started much the way the first half ended as Chorley passing the ball well and looked to create chances and bombard the Huddersfield goal.

But as chances went begging, the game became heated.

Things started going awry for Chorley when Town hit them on the break to make it 2-1.

Before Chorley could recover, it was 3-1 an almost carbon copy attack.

Chorley changed their formation in a bid to get back into the tie.

But again their pressing saw Huddersfield slot home twice to make it 5-1.

Chorley’s frustration was evident when an unnecessary foul was committed 30 yards from goal.

The floated free-kick was met by the head of a Huddersfield defender which sailed into the back of the net to completing a bad day at the office for Chorley.
