FT: Supporters Day – Willenhall Town 1 Sporting Khalsa 2
A large crowd enjoyed a local derby that saw the opposition go into an early lead. The 2nd half mirrored the first with the opposition scoring their second before Simon Laidley pulled a goal back for the Lockmen.
Willenhall Town Football Club host their local West Midlands (Regional) League rivals Sporting Khalsa FC on Saturday in a massive league battle between the two teams representing the historic town.
Willenhall Town are proud to be part of the non-league scene and wish to activiely promote grassroots football in the local community. The life blood of the sport at this level is supporters and players and yet many people are not aware that life exists outside of the national league system, and in the main the “big” clubs.
Our players have challenged themselves to bring in as many supporters each as they can on Saturday billing the day “Supporters Day”, a chance to get behind the Red Army, the original football club from the town of Willenhall. The club has then challenged itself to bring in as many supporters as possible too to raise the profile of the club and also that of the non-league system, and maybe gain a new army of supporters for the next generation.
Willenhall Town have seen massive crowds at key matches in it’s 60 year plus history and would love to welcome more people to the sport and especially to Long Lane Park. We are proud to have been finalists in the FA Vase in 1981 and played at Wembley and have just gained a place through to the next round for the first time in many years. We are hoping to recreate the fantastic journey to Wembley and would love to have the support of the local community along the way.
