With Premier League and Championship clubs 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 (13th October). Now in its ninth 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:
Canvey Island vs Cray Wanderers
Dagenham & Redbridge vs Wrexham AFC
Great Wakering Rovers vs East Grinstead Town
Harlow Town vs Carshalton Athletic
Heybridge Swifts vs Bury Town
Offers being run this weekend include Dagenham & Redbridge, who are offering discounted entry to season ticket holders of Premier League and Championship clubs. The club are also offering free entry to members of the Armed Forces and the Emergency services upon presentation of their service ID.
Harlow Town are offering free entry to under 18’s and over 65’s and season ticket holders of any league club are being offered a free burger and chips upon production of their season ticket.
West Ham supporters may also be interested in paying a visit to Heybridge Swifts, who have recently appointed their former full-back and club legend, Julian Dicks as manager.
