Today! Non-League Day Saturday 25th March
An opportunity to showcase non-league football. Are you a Premier or EFL valid season ticket holder? Come and watch the Angels for a 'tenner'.
With the international break (24/25/26 March) meaning that elite football at club level takes a step back, the opportunity is there for the non-league family to encourage their various communities to come and see what their local clubs have to offer hence Non-League Day.
The unique selling points of the non-league game are sometimes forgotten in the rush to experience Premier League in the flesh or just sit in an armchair and follow it through a screen. Non-League football clubs offer much cheaper admission charges, the chance to be closer to the action, more relaxed rules on alchohol consumption, shorter and cheaper journey times to local grounds, socialising after the game where players mix with supporters, and the football itself is pretty good at the sixth tier of the game!
Tonbridge Angels fits into this unique sporting proposition, but will be taking some specific actions on the day to encourage even more local residents to come and see what its all about and hopefully help cheer the team in its push for the National South play offs as it welcomes Hungerford Town to Longmead (KO 3:00pm).
In a bid to attract some of those who we can observe at Tonbridge station on Saturday mornings waiting for a train to take them to a Premier League or EFL game, we will be offering a £5.00 reduction to £10.00 for admission to anybody holding a valid season ticket for a Premier League or EFL club. Any Angels season ticket holder can bring a friend who will be charged just £10.00.
The Angels Sports Bar will be operating a Happy 2 Hours from 12:00pm to 2:00pm with free sweets for kids so why not come along earlier and enjoy sport on our multi screen facilities including live action from our own league - Slough Town vs Ebbsfleet Utd (KO 12:30pm)..
There will be half time entertainment and the Angels Marquee will be open after the game for a party with live music.
Angels Chairman, Dave Netherstreet said today: "Those who enjoy football and who live in the area but haven't yet connected with our club, we invite you all to Longmead to experience why we are an increasingly important part of the leisure and sporting community."
