Non League Day 2017-Supporting Grass Roots Football

The Vale’s youngest fan, Kian ready and prepared with his new Vale Supporters Scarf before setting off to the Scottish Cup Tie with Spartans.

The SFA have been promoting the Non League day which is on the 7th October. This is the international weekend where the majority of professional teams will not be playing, and its also the day that the Vale have a local derby with Selkirk FC at Victoria Park.

The SFA initiative is for fans to meet the players, management and committee and get to know what is involved in Non League football and hopefully enjoy the game, with the hope that they will return.

The Vale are prepared not only on Non League day, but before any home games to show parents/kids around the facilities prior to kick off (around 1 1/2 hours before if they want to see the dressing rooms).

It has been noted that in recent games that the number of kids attending has increased, and the club would love to see more like Kian wearing the club scarf. The scarf will be on sale at the park and cost £5.00.
