With the Premier League and Championship taking this weekend off, Non-League football clubs all over the country are putting on offers and initiatives to encourage people to come and watch a Non-League football game this Saturday (7th October). Now in its eighth year, the boost in attendances and revenue seen on Non-League Day can provide clubs in the lower ends of the football pyramid with vital funds.
Matches in the region this weekend include:
Bowers & Pitsea vs Dereham Town
Chelmsford City vs Eastbourne Borough
Heybridge Swifts vs Carshalton Athletic
This year, Prostate Cancer UK is the official charity partner to Non-League Day and clubs will be running various fundraising initiatives during their matches. Bowers & Pitsea are one such club and will be collecting money for the charity throughout their match against Dereham Town.
