Calling all football fans: Alfreton Town need your support and it could cost as little as 1p to give it
Alfreton Town FC chairman Wayne Bradley has launched an impassioned plea for football fans throughout the area to come and help roar the Reds to a much-needed home win against relegation rivals Welling United this Saturday.
With Derby County, Nottingham Forest, Chesterfield, Notts County, Mansfield Town and Burton Albion all having away games this weekend, Bradley has reiterated his promise that any fans attending this Saturday’s crucial home game against Welling can pay whatever they want to watch the fixture.
The Reds are facing their most important game since winning the Conference North title in the 2010/11 season with a massive, must-win clash against The Wings.
Nicky Law’s side slipped back into the bottom four on goal difference on Tuesday night after the Kent side beat Wrexham 2-1 at home. However, Alfreton’s fate is still very much in their own hands.
A win over Welling at the Impact Arena on Saturday would put the Reds three points clear of the Kent side with both sides having one game left to play.
Hoping for plenty of outside support for Saturday’s vital game, Bradley said: “I extend an open invite to fans of all clubs on our doorstep to come and join us at Alfreton this Saturday. Please come along, support us, get behind us and try to help us stay in the top level of non league football.
“Just get down to the Impact Arena this Saturday. Pay whatever you wish, no matter how big or small, just please come and help us towards our ultimate goal of staying in the Vanarama Conference.
Bristol Rovers tickets
Meanwhile, Alfreton supporters are reminded that the last game of the 2014/15 season at title-chasing Bristol Rovers on Saturday, April 25th, is all-ticket for away fans.
Tickets for this game will be on sale at the Impact Arena at this Saturday’s home game against Welling.
ATFC Supporters’ Association are hoping to arrange additional transport to the Rovers game and fans are requested to book as soon as possible by contacting Mark Thorpe on 07857 558401.
