Saturday 13th October is Non-League Day, when all football supporters are encouraged to support their local team and watch non-league football. With no Premier League, Championship or International matches being played, this is the perfect opportunity to sample the world outside of the Football League for fans across the country and Corby Town would like to welcome everybody to Steel Park with open arms.
The Steelmen host Altrincham at Steel Park in the Blue Square Bet North on Non-League Day, and are inviting the people of Corby and beyond to attend the match and enjoy the football, whilst also helping to raise money for a good cause and turn Steel Park pink.
Corby Town Football Club, in partnership with the Corby Town Supporters’ Trust, will be raising money for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity and have planned a number of fun activities for the day.
Festivities will kick off at 1pm, when an Under 16 sponsored walk will take place around the perimeter of the Steel Park pitch. Sponsorship forms are available to download here for anybody interested in taking part.
The Corby Radio bus will be in attendance. There will also be competitions and prizes running throughout the day, half-time entertainment, pink refreshments and stalls raising money for Breakthrough.
Breakthrough Breast Cancer is a charity dedicated to saving lives by finding the causes of breast cancer, improving detection, diagnosis, treatment and services. In addition to raising money at the match, the Corby Town Supporters Trust are holding a charity launch party on Friday 12th October at Corby Rugby Club. Tickets are available for just £1.
The organisers would also like to encourage everybody attending the match to wear something pink in support of the event, with the Corby Town players wearing the club’s 2012/13 pink away kit.
