Chromasport United Counties League
Published 2nd September 2011
Stewart & Lloyds is holding a Ladies’ Day tomorrow, with free admission, a glass of wine and a gift for all members of the fairer sex.
The hosts, based in Occupation Road, are at home to Stamford side Blackstones in the ChromaSport Trophies United Counties League Premier Division and are hoping for a mixed crowd on the sidelines.
The visitors aim to attract ladies from across the Lincolnshire border and have advertised it in their programme.
Saturday is also national `Non-League Day`, a celebration of the semi-professional and amateur game.
Chairman John Davies said: “We are hopeful that the men-folk of the town bring along their partners not only to witness a decent game, but to actually enjoy the afternoon as a whole.
“Many think that football is purely for the men. But here at Occupation Road we have a ladies team and know that without involvement of the better sex the club could not develop as we see it.
“We want to invite along and thank the ladies from the local community and you never know, they may want to come along again in future.”
Secretary Kevin O’Brien said: “The background to it is the club is making attempts at getting the community back involved. It is also non-League football day this Saturday and we will be putting the two together.
“Non-League football is cheaper and the banter is a lot better. It is a lot more harmonious.”
He added: “A lot of the time at UCL level, the players don’t tend to bring their partners with them and we want to try and change that as well.”
