7 October
Leighton Baines has urged football fans across the country to support Non-League Day 2015 this weekend.

Following the record-breaking event last year, the event will return for a sixth consecutive season on Saturday 10 October to provide a platform for clubs across the country to promote the importance of volunteer-led community football.

And Baines, who is currently recovering from an ankle injury sustained on the eve of the 2015/16 campaign, has backed Evertonians to get behind the campaign during the international break.

“It’s very important,” he said. “I remember as a kid with my Grandad I’d travel around and watch lots of the local teams. We’d watch some of the games at Marine, we’d be at Bootle and a lot of my memories were travelling round and watching those games.

“I think there is a lot to be said for supporting your local communities and local teams. I think fans can support a Premier League side but there is still a lot of fun involved in going down and supporting your local sides as well. 

“I think it’s great that we can get involved in a day like that and encourage people to continue to support the sides that aren’t always in limelight.”

For the second year in a row, Non-League Day has partnered with Prostate Cancer UK - the official charity partner of the Football League - to encourage clubs and fans to ‘pledge their allegiance’ to Men United.

The likes of Bootle, Widnes, St. Helens and Tranmere Rovers all play at home this weekend, or, to find out the most local matches to where you live, visit www.nonleagueday.co.uk
