Nicole Carroll: A one woman mission to make a name in football

Stuck on Non-League day? Go to Worcester FC

leave a comment »

The twitterati is back in action, and those who are interested and involved in football are getting behind a scheme which should hopefully see fans take a visit to non-league grounds this weekend.

Non-league day is being held this weekend to coincide with the international break. Fans of the Premier League, Championship and Leagues one and two are being encouraged to use their Saturday “off” as such to visit those clubs who are most likely local to them, but they’ve never visited.

Unfortunately, I’m working this weekend. However, if I had a Saturday to myself, I’d be making my way to Worcester FC to watch them take on Nuneaton town, and I would encourage anyone in the area to go along.

For anyone who hasn’t heard of Worcester, they currently reside in the Blue Square north league in the heady heights of 8th place, just one place below tomorrows opponents.

If the weathers nice, taking yourself to St. Georges Lane for the afternoon could just be an enjoyable way to kill a few hours Saturday and a good way of showing support to the lower leagues.  I’ll be there in spirit..bovril in hand.

Adults are priced at £11, OAP’s students concessions are £7 and kids are £3.
