Non-League Day, 2011
The Trust gives its full support to this event, as we did in 2010. Details may be found on: http://www.nonleagueday.co.uk
This contains information on all the day’s fixtures as well as maps, a club guide section and articles from football writers.
Non-League Day is a chance to support these teams for one weekend a year, to see what the hard-working people, the majority of whom are volunteers, at the clubs are doing to keep the fabric of English football alive.
Across the country, many smaller teams walk a financial tightrope between surviving and falling into liquidation. Money is always needed, but there’s rarely enough to go round. Barely a month seems to go by without a club resigning their status or being wound up, and the latest high profile collapse of Rushden & Diamonds merely heads a list that is growing at an alarming rate.
Formally, Non-League Day is on Saturday, 3rd. September, but please check your local club’s fixtures list since some matches have been switched to Sunday, 4th.? Please support the day and your local non-league team?
