Alsager hoping for big Non-League day turnout

0

Alsager Town chairman Terry Greer is hopeful of a big crowd at Wood Park for non-league day as the Bullets look for their ninth straight win.

They currently sit third in the North West Counties League Division One after the opening 10 games. Meanwhile, Their opponents on Saturday, Prestwich Hays, have also started well and sit just one place below.

As most non-league clubs are run by volunteers, money taken at the turnstiles is an important way of funding youth set-ups, community projects and community events. What started as a social media experiment has become an annual event on the football calendar, receiving backing from many Premier League clubs.

Whilst admitting Alsager face competition for attendances tomorrow, Greer is hopeful that people will choose to watch the clash at Wood Park.

“It’s a top of the league game, we’re third, they’re fourth. You’d like to hope that people locally will come out to support us.

“My message to people in the local area is come down and give us all your support. It’s obviously beneficial financially but it makes the lads feel that they are wanted by the community.

“Hopefully people will notice the good start we’ve made and choose to spend their day here.”
