Newton Delighted to See FC Halifax Up
David Newton

....FC Halifax Town - as he expects it to mean a bumper pay day.

Last week, the Pilgrims chairman had to ‘slightly’ cut his playing budget for the upcoming season, as the club aim to finish a season in the black.

With travelling support in non-league football often down to a bare minimum, club bosses regularly rub their hands together at the thought of facing an opponent likely to attract a few hundred visiting supporters through the turnstiles.

And with AFC Telford United - one of the league’s better-supported teams - gaining promotion to the Blue Square Bet Premier, Newton hopes facing the Yorkshire newcomers will fill a void.

“We’re looking to balance the books,” he said.

“So teams like Halifax, who are likely to bring a lot of fans, will always be welcomed here by me.

“In terms of supporters coming here, I was sorry to see Telford go, but Halifax will be a great couple of fixtures.

“I’m sure we’ll take fans to there as well.”

However, another bumper payday will not happen as FC United of Manchester lost their play-off final against Colwyn Bay, meaning they will not follow Halifax out of the Evo-Stik Premier.

The Pilgrims and the Rebels have created close links during their time as opponents in the Northern Premier League, with a gate of 2,533 watching United earn a 4-1 victory the last time the two sides met at York Street, back in April 2010.

“I’m very upset for FC United that they didn’t come up,” added Newton.

“However, we congratulate Colwyn Bay on their promotion and look forward to playing them.

“They will offer us a different challenge.”
