Non League Day proves a success
Non League Day proves a success

October 10th 2015 was designated Non League Day for the 2015-16 season and it proved to be a big success.


An international break meant that there was no top flight football so many non league clubs took advantage and put on special deals to try and attract new supporters to a purer form of the game.

Many people are growing tired of all seater stadia, footballers more interested in cheating officials than playing the beautiful game, and exorbitantly high prices.

Once experienced they are being attracted to the high quality of football at games that don’t normally require segregation and heavy handed policing.

Kick it Out, football’s equality and inclusion organisation, had their Fans for Diversity campaign promoted at a number of games.


The Boreham Wood and Welling United teams wore their t-shirts in their pre-match warm up, and conducted the respect handshake ceremony behind advertising banners.

National League sponsors Vanarama also took the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer.

They donated £10 to the cause for anyone who took a selfie and tweeted it to them wearing one of their crazy orange wigs at a Vanarama National match.


One of the Welling United owners, Barry Hobbins, showed his support by tweeting from his office.

Supporters, including Gary Leman and Danny Kibble, wore them on the Boreham Wood terraces, whilst Kent Sports News reporter Mark Doig had his on in the press box throughout the game and during the post match interviews.
