We were honoured and excited to be recently asked to become the charity partner for this season’s Non League Day, which takes place on Saturday October 13th.
Non-League Day is a celebration of the semi-professional and amateur game and a chance for fans of bigger clubs to experience football at a level they may be otherwise unfamiliar with. Moreover, it helps promote hundreds of clubs across the country who are almost exclusively volunteer-run and do so much good for the local community.
Non-League Day is the brainchild of James Doe, a lifelong football fan, supporter of QPR and follower of Harrow Borough FC. In James’ own words:
“With England playing on Friday 12th October and the Premier League and Championship taking a week off, I urge all fans of the big clubs to get out and watch their local non-league teams instead on Saturday 13th October!
Given the current financial climate, clubs outside the football league need all the support they can get, so your presence at a game will be genuinely appreciated. With tickets and refreshments at a fraction of the cost, what’s stopping you!”
We will be getting involved in Non League Day by arranging Kicks at non-league games on the day, we have already organised one for the game at Kenilworth Road between Luton Town and Nuneaton Town.
