Carshalton Athletic are our visitors tomorrow afternoon as we take part in the national Non League Day that has been set up to encourage supporters of professional clubs to come along and support grassroots football.

Admission for anyone that holds a season ticket for any club (unfortunately apart from our opponents) can gain entry for the reduced price of £5.00. Normal admission prices of £9.00 adults, £5.00 concessions and £1.00 for under 16s apply, and we believe these are the lowest admission prices for Step 3 football in North London.

Carshalton have had a mixed start to the season despite winning their opening game against Lowestoft Town. Their second game was abandoned in the second half due to a waterlogged pitch, and since then they have drawn 1-1 at Canvey Island, and on Monday they lost 2-1 to Croydon Athletic. The Robin's goal came courtesy of a spot kick conversion by Byron Harrison.

Our opponents, who are now managed by Mark Butler, have made a number of signings during the summer, including former Hendon midfielder Paul Johnson from Ashford Town (Middlesex).

Meanwhile, Gary McCann, speaking after the Harrow victory on Monday, said that "We now need to build on our good start with a result against Carshalton." Gary will be keen for the squad to put in another good, professional performance similar to those seen in the past couple of games.

In terms of travel to the game tomorrow, there are no reported engineering works on either the Bakerloo Line or Piccadilly Line - the two tube lines that stop nearest Vale Farm. Supporters are advised that there is no service on the Jubilee Line between Stanmore and Waterloo, on the Metropolitan Line between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Aldgate, and on the Central Line between Marble Arch and West Ruislip.

Please encourage your friends and family to come along tomorrow, and hopefully they will like what they see and will be tempted to return again in the future.
