It’s Non-League Day!
With the Premier League and the Championship both off because of international break, this is a perfect time to go out and support a local Non-League team.
| From @GuiseleyAFC to @safc, we take a look at all the local sides in action this weekend #NonLeagueDay— Leeds United (@LUFC) October 12, 2018
Non-League day has grown from just a social media effort in 2010 to an annual day to celebrate grassroots football all over England.
There are a number of local non-league teams in Yorkshire that will be offering discounts to season ticket holders of Leeds or other Championship/Premier League clubs.
Per the Leeds official website, here are a few teams that they are highlighting:
Below is a list of local fixtures across the region, which all kick-off at 3:00pm on Saturday unless stated.
AFC Guiseley v Brackley Town
Bradford Park Avenue v Kidderminster Harriers
Farsley Celtic v Buxton
Glasshoughton Welfare v Hallam
FC Halifax Town v Chesterfield (17:15)
Harrogate Town v Dover Athletic
Knaresborough Town v Hall Road Rangers
Ossett United v Colwyn Bay
Pickering Town v Stocksbridge Park Steels (3pm Sunday)
Scarborough Athletic v Bamber Bridge
As part of the day, AFC Guiseley have confirmed Leeds United season ticket holders can watch their game with Brackley Town and get half price entry, whilst Leeds defender Liam Kitching who is currently on loan at Harrogate Town could be in action at Wetherby Road.
Harrogate Town is also near the top of the National League, so it is possible that they might make the jump to the Football League next year, which would be huge for the club.
