Celebrated throughout the country, this Saturday is Non-League Day. Always scheduled to coincide with an international break, Non-League Day provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of affordable volunteer led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side.
Having been giving a bye in the FA Trophy we will now play our rearranged fixture against Mildenhall Town at The Park.
Many non-league clubs are almost exclusively volunteer run, with money taken at the turnstiles often funding thriving youth set-ups, projects and facilities which are of benefit to the whole community. The level of skill on offer at non-league grounds will never compare to that at the Emirates Stadium or Old Trafford, for example, but there are other sides to the experience, from which the smaller club will always win hands down. The vast majority of games still kick off at 3pm, ticket prices are realistic, you can often stand (and drink!) anywhere in the ground and will always be guaranteed a warm welcome by people who run their clubs for a love of the game.
This Non-League Day, we’re supporting the official charity partner Prostate Cancer UK, to help stop a disease that kills one man every 45 minutes.
You can support them too.
