The Story so far re : Chadderton Fold

The Club’s Committee are delighted to announce, after some considerable negotiations, that the Club has now signed the licence to take over the site of the old St. Matthews Cricket club at Chadderton Fold ( Chaddy Fold ), at the side of Chadderton Hall Park.

Cricket had been played on this site for well over 100 years but in recent years the Cricket club had gone into decline. As the Cricket Club was also unable to extend its boundaries to conform to modern day standards which has sadly resulted in the club folding.

The trustees of the site have had several meetings with our Committee members and have decided to grant us a licence for 25 years to play football matches on the site.

The old cricket pavilion still stands but as can be seen from the photos, it had become almost derelict and the whole site was overgrown. 



This front view of the old pavilion shows how run down the building has become. It is now beyond saving and needs demolishing.

We have now made safe the old brick paviion and given it a quick lick of white paint.... complete with our own Chadderton Park FC club sign.




The whole site was overgrown and needed

clearing before a football pitch could be marked on it.

Now the Grass has been cut and

marked out as a useable pitch


The first step was to clear the whole site so that the ground can be prepared for laying a football pitch.

The Club engaged the services of Colin Harrop of Birchlea Horticultural Services.

This has now happened and the Pitch is being maintained to a high standard

We have now had one side of the pitch fenced off, this fence is available for sponsorship advertising at £ 200 per panel

See our Sponsors page for list of Sponsors and further details... money needs to be raised for the remainder required.

Proposed Plans for the Development of Chadderton Fold

We plan to demolish the old Pavillion and build new Changing Rooms in the corner, on the site of the existing wooden paviliion
