Wealdstone will be hoping Non-League Day brings a bumper crowd to Grosvenor Vale this Saturday when they welcome Hampton & Richmond Borough in the Vanarama National League South.

With no fixtures in the top two tiers of English football taking place this weekend owing to the international break, the annual event promoting non-league football is back for another year.

Fans of clubs without a game this weekend are being encouraged to pop along to their nearest ground and support their local club.

Non-league clubs across the country are also putting on special offers to entice more through the gate, and Wealdstone are no exception.

You may also want to watch:

Fans who hold a season ticket with a club in the Premier Division or the English Football League can gain entry to the game against Hampton for just £9 upon showing their season ticket at the turnstile.

Members of the armed services can also gain entry for the same price by showing their ID card at the turnstiles.

Wenzel’s, who sponsor the main stand at Grosvenor Vale, will also be joining in the fun of Non-League Day this weekend.

Providing the weather is kind, Wenzel’s are offering vouchers to the winners of a penalty shoot-out competition and a kick-ups competition, which will take place at half-time during the game between Wealdstone and Hampton.

As for the game itself, Stones will be hoping their return to league action sees them build on an FA Cup triumph last time out.
