City hope for attendance boost on non-league day

WORCESTER City are hoping for another large crowd at Aggborough this weekend as part of non-league day.
With no fixtures in the Premier League or Championship due to the latest tranche of World Cup qualifiers, semi-professional clubs across the country are opening their doors to supporters of other teams.
It is the third year the scheme has taken place and City have been involved on each occasion.
For this Saturday’s home match against Bradford Park Avenue (3pm), the Skrill North club are offering season ticket holders from any club and any sport entry for £5.
That means fans of Worcester Warriors, Worcestershire CCC, Worcester Wolves, Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion, Birmingham City or Wolves can take advantage.
All supporters need to do is show their season ticket at the turnstile.
Having seen two 700-plus attendances for the matches against Altrincham and Hednesford Town, City want another as they chase a first win of the campaign.
Director Rich Widdowson said: “It’s always given a boost to the gate with a lot of people coming along for the first time so it’s been good for us.
“It gives people a chance to have a look at non-league football who might not mormally think about it.”
