Daventry Town Football Club’s chairman and secretary have opened their doors to Gusher readers this Saturday.

Steve Tubb and Brian Porter have invited fans to come along and support the team this weekend as the club continue their push for promotion from the United Counties League Division One when they play Stewarts & Lloyds AFC.

Mr Porter, the club secretary, hopes that supporters will spend the whole day at Communications Park.

He said: “Our message to the fans is ‘Come up and get behind the club!’

“Breakfast will be available from 9am, and the gate itself will be open at 1pm.

“Food and drink will be available all day, and we have Sky Sports and BT Sport in the bar. We’ll have the boxing on and a race evening also.

“It would be fantastic if people came and spent their Saturday here with us.”

With attendances at Communications Park usually around the 130 mark, Saturday’s game is a good opportunity to get more fans through the gate, and also to showcase the venue’s facilities.

“The facilities we have now are second to none,” said chairman Mr Tubb. “We’ve had clubs come here and say how impressed they are.”

Mr Porter added: “We’d love people to come and have a look around at the facilities we have here and we encourage people to use them.”

But above all the day will be about watching and enjoying the football, especially with the club playing so well of late.

“We’re a side worth watching,” said Mr Porter. “The boys have got us playing very attractive football, we try and play and keep the ball on the ground.

“One player that’s always worth the gate admission is attacking midfielder Aaron King. He had a scholarship up at Liverpool and you can see he’s got the talent.

“Adam Confue is certainly one to watch. He’s all action in midfield and never stops, and we’ve also got Adam Creaney nicknamed ‘Ginger Pele’.”
