SLOUGH Town were rewarded for their fantastic offers and incredible value for money with a bumper crowd of 1,115 at Arbour Park for national Non-League Day on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

Non-League Day started in 2010 and has become an annual part of the football calendar - backed by the Premier League, Football League and non-league clubs as well as MPs, celebrities and media organisations.

Scheduled to coincide with an international break, it provides a platform for non-league clubs to promote affordable volunteer-led community football as well as giving fans across the country the chance to support their local team.

Admission into Arbour Park for the match against Billericay Town was reduced to just £5 whilst all Under 16s could watch for free. Slough also offered free admission for season ticket holders of any Premier League of Football League Club.

There were 103 season ticket holders of Premier League or Football League teams in the crowd including 14 from West Ham United and 16 from Brentford, plus 13 from neighbouring Reading and eight from Wycombe Wanderers. There was even spectators from as far afield as Australia.

Season ticket holders: West Ham 14, Leicester City 1, Queens Park Rangers 12, Arsenal 4, Tottenham Hotspur 7, Chelsea 11, Reading 13, Fulham 2, Brentford 16, Watford 6, Millwall 1, Charlton Athletic 1, Tranmere Rovers 1, Swansea City 2, Wolverhampton Wanderers 1, Wycombe 8, Everton 1 and Leeds United 2

The Rebels also sold reduced price season tickets and offered 10% off certain items in the club shop including the home replica shirt.

Non-League Day - along with the MANarama National League campaign - supports Prostate Cancer UK and funds were collected for this very worthy cause during the match.

Slough Town return to action in the National League South with a trip to Oxford City on Saturday 26th October. The Rebels next match at Arbour Park is on Saturday 2nd November when Chelmsford City make the trip from Essex.
