Non-League Day 2014

West Ham United are without a Barclays Premier League match this weekend, with Hammers fans encouraged to take advantage of the break in the fixture list by supporting Non-League Day 2014.

Non-League Day was set up by Queens Park Rangers fan James Doe in 2010 as a social media experiment, after he was inspired by a pre-season trip to Devon to watch the Hoops play at Tavistock.

It has now grown to become an annual part of the football calendar, backed by Barclays Premier League and Football League clubs, MPs, celebrities, media organisations, charities and most importantly the non-league clubs themselves and the fans who turn up on the day.

West Ham fans living in east London and Essex have plenty of options for their football fix on Saturday 6 September. All the below fixtures kick-off at 3pm, unless otherwise stated.

The closest non-league fixture to the Boleyn Ground geographically is the Ryman League Division 1 North fixture between Barkingside and Ware.

A little further afield and Tower Hamlets are taking on Greenhouse London at Mile End Stadium in the Essex Senior League. Newham travel to second-place Haringey Borough in the same competition, with the match being played at Coles Park in White Hart Lane.

Out into Essex and AFC Hornchurch welcome Margate to Bridge Avenue for a 2pm kick-off in the Ryman League Premier Division. Former Hammers Moses Ashikodi and Courtney Homans could feature for the home side.

Aveley will be in action in Ryman League Division 1 North, hosting fellow Essex side Heybridge Swifts in a 12.45pm kick-off. The Swifts' squad includes player-coach and West Ham's 1999 FA Youth Cup winning striker Lee Boylan. In the same competition, Romford welcome Tilbury to Ship Lane, Thurrock, while Brentwood Town host Norfolk-based Wroxham at the Brentwood Centre.

Basildon will play host to two FA Vase fixtures. Basildon United welcome Haverhill Borough to The TLM Stadium in Gardiners Close, while Bowers and Pitsea host Codicote at the Len Salmon Stadium in Crown Avenue.

If you want to venture south of the River Thames, former Hammer Rob Girdlestone could feature for Chelmsford City in their Vanarama Conference South trip to Bromley. In the same competition, Ebbsfleet United take on St Albans, with the home side managed by former West Ham reserve-team coach Steve Brown.
