Supporting the grassroots game – down at Champion Hill
This year’s Non-League Day event takes place on Saturday (October 10th) and Fisher FC will be using the day to celebrate the best of SE16 as they welcome Sevenoaks Town to Champion Hill.
As part of the celebrations, the club is welcoming representatives from local organisations including Bermondsey Community Kitchen and Cherry Garden School. Local businesses including The Body Tonic Clinic and Canada Water based Metro Village are supporting the event which will be attended by The Mayor of Southwark.
On the day, to encourage a community atmosphere, SE16 residents (with proof of address) will be permitted entry for half of the usual price, meaning Adults can watch the game for just £3.50, with Over 60s and Students getting in for £2. This offer is also open to Premiership and Football League club season ticket holders (on presentation of season ticket). Usual entry prices are £7 for adults and £4 for Concessions.
Ahead of the event, Club Secretary Ian Murphy commented “As we edge ever closer to moving back to SE16, it is important that we engage with our community and that we show local residents what we are all about so they feel they want to come and support their club”.
Gates will open for supporters at 1.30pm on the day but there will be a Meet and Greet session with senior club officials in the stadium’s bar area from 12.30.
Following the record-breaking event last year, Non-League Day will return for a sixth consecutive season on Saturday 10th October 2015. With England playing on Saturday during the September international break, the October date provides a perfect opportunity for non-league clubs to think of new and exciting ways to attract fans through their gates.
Once again, we will be partnering with Prostate Cancer UK in an effort to raise funds for, and awareness of, an illness that affects thousands of men in Britain every year.
Non-League Day remains a totally volunteer-run initiative. If you would like to help promote this year’s event, please get in touch with us HERE Further details will be released in due course.
