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.

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.
