This season we had the unique opportunity to be front and centre of Non-League Day as our fixture with Chesterfield was the live evening match on BT Sport.

We offered free entry to local grassroots teams and had over 16 teams attend from 10 different clubs. Some of the players were asked to be part of the player walk-out in their club kit.

We repeated the offer for the FA Cup match with AFC Wimbledon and we allowed free entry to over 300 local football players & their coaches.

At Christmas we offered a free lunch for local charities, their staff and users. With over 250 people attending we had a wonderful afternoon at the Shay and are hoping to make this an annual date in the diary.

Something that definitely goes unseen is the 100s of requests we get for signed footballs/shirts, free tickets etc. from local charities and individuals raising money for a cause/charity/school. Obviously we cannot meet every request but when possible we provide a donation.
