Get your football fix at Holyport FC

It’s the international break this weekend – so why not get your football fix elsewhere by watching Holyport FC down at Maidenhead!

As the Royals aren't in action, this Saturday is ‘Non League Day’ - and Holyport FC will be taking on Newbury in the FA Vase first round proper. 

Non-League Day is the idea of James Doe, a lifelong football fan and follower of Harrow Borough FC, who said, "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.

Non-League Day is a celebration of the semi-professional and amateur game, and helps promote hundreds of clubs across the country who are almost exclusively volunteer run and do plenty of good for the local community. 

Admission for the day is just £5 for adults, £3 for under 16s and under 12s free. Directions can be found by clicking here.
