West Ham United are delighted to support the seventh consecutive Non-League Day, which provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of volunteer led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side.
Taking place this Saturday, Non-League Day is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a non-league match, while supporting partner charity Men United which helps raise awareness for prostate cancer.
Hammers’ hero Michail Antonio is one of a number of Premier League stars to have started their careers in the lower leagues having started out at Tooting & Mitcham.
Now celebrating his first international call up, the then 17-year-old scored an impressive 33 goals in 45 appearances, kick-starting an upward trajectory that has seen him reach the top flight of English football.
Fellow stars that followed a similar path to Antonio include the likes of Jamie Vardy, Chris Smalling and Yannick Bolasie among others – and who knows, you may stumble across a future star!
The match closest to the Hammers fantastic new home – and coincidentally home of the Hammers’ PL2 side - is Dagenham & Redbridge’s Vanarama National League match with Boreham Wood, 3pm KO.
