Hammers urged to support Non-League Day

Paul Konchesky and Billericay Town are in action on Non-League Day


West Ham United will be out of action next weekend due to the international break, but there will still be plenty of football being played in east London and south Essex.

So, with no Hammers to fulfil your sporting fix, why not support Non-League Day 2017?

Set up as a social media experiment in 2010 by Queens Park Rangers supporter James Doe, Non-League Day has grown to become an annual part of the football calendar, backed by Premier League and Football League clubs, MPs, celebrities, media organisations, charities and most importantly the non-league clubs themselves.
