Evo-Stik League Northern Premier Division - Saturday, 3rd October 2015
Halesowen Town 0 Whitby Town 0
Halesowen recorded their first drawn game of the season after failing to find the net in a dour stalemate, writes David Johnson (Photo's by Craig Harrison). With Whitby more than happy to claim a rare away point and Halesowen lacking invention up front, a drab draw started to look inevitable from early on with the moribund game producing just a few half chances until the final ten minutes.
This seasons Non-League Day is on Saturday 10th October 2015 and The Yeltz are at home to Matlock Town, the first time the Yeltz have been at home on this day for years. Non-League Day is an annual event which celebrates semi-professional and grassroots football in England. It is held during an International Football week and we are aiming for a bumper crowd. We had a successful campaign last season where 768 people watched the game against Workington AFC.
We have decided to call this day, '£5upport Your Local Team' once again as we say High Five to Non League! There will be reduced entry for all at just £5 for Adults, OAP's and Concessions! Prices remain at a low £3 for U16's and £Free for U12's. To reward the loyalty of those who purchased season tickets a free programme can be collected upon production of a season ticket at the Club Shop.
Halesowen Town will now be at home on Non League Day (Saturday 10th October 2015) to Matlock Town. The club will be discussing offering fans a special entry price for the game as we did with Workington AFC last season. Watch this space. The fixture was due to be played in January but following both clubs exit's from this seasons FA Cup the NPL have kindly re-arranged the fixture.
The youth team progressed to the next round of the FA Youth Cup after beating Newcastle Town 2-1 in front of a crowd of 92. They will now face Kidderminster Harriers at the Grove in the Second Qualifying Round, the tie is to be played on Wednesday 7th October 2015.
