Non-League Day provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of affordable, volunteer-led community football, while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local side.

This year’s Non-League Day takes place this Saturday, 12th October, when high-flying Radstock Town take on Somerset rivals, Cheddar, at Southfield Recreation Ground.

Miners Manager, Brett Partner, said: “This is shaping up to be a big season for us, so for anyone living in our area who hasn’t watched Radstock play, Non-League Day is the perfect time to start.”

Non-League Day was set up by James Doe in 2010 as a social media experiment, after being inspired by a pre-season trip to Devon to watch Queens Park Rangers play at Tavistock. It has now grown to become an annual part of the football calendar, backed by Premier League and Football League clubs, charities, and most importantly, the non-league clubs themselves.

This year, Prostate Cancer UK is the official charity partner of Non-League Day, and they are calling on clubs across the land to fundraise on their match day and raise awareness of the disease. Radstock Town will be running a bucket collection for Prostate Cancer UK at the game.

Radstock Town Chairman, Simon Wilkinson, said: “We are proud to support Prostate Cancer UK on Non-League Day, along with the RUH Forever Friends Appeal, who are our charity partners this season.”
