Non-League Day

For the second consecutive season, Barry Town were part of the national Non-League Day in 2014; a nationwide event held annually during the autumn's international break.

Designed to encourage fans of professional clubs to investigate their local amateur side, Non-League Day has evolved into a widespread celebration of the beautiful game at its purest.

With September's international qualifiers now played on Friday evenings, the first Saturday of the month has become something of a desert for the domestic football enthusiast; with both the Premiership and Championship calendar put on hold.

Non-League Day aims to provide the oasis; with English league clubs like Cardiff City encouraging supporters in pursuit of a football fix to back the amateur clubs on their doorstep.

A crowd of 200+ visited Jenner Park on 2013's Non-League Day, as Barry entertained AFC Llwydcoed, with the Bluebirds promoting the match on their Twitter feed and consequently generating publicity for the fixture on the Sky Sports website.

In 2014, Barry would welcome Cardiff fans back to Jenner Park once more, as they and supporters of a host of other clubs witnessed a thrilling 2-1 comeback win for the Town against visitors Risca United.

Should the fixture lists be kind, the club hopes to partake in the 2015 event; though we welcome visitors from other clubs at all times through the season.

The 2014 Non-League Day supported its official charity partner of Prostate Cancer UK, whose website can be found here.
