Troubled Stalybridge Celtic is offering half-price entry to season-ticket holders of Manchester United, Manchester City and any other club on Saturday (March 24) for home game against Warrington Town.
“We’re asking fans of other clubs who have not got a home game this week to come and enjoy the joy of non-league football and visit one of the oldest and best non-league grounds in the country. Stalybridge Celtic v Warrington should be great entertainment and you if you bring your season ticket, it’s phenomenal value for a fiver!”
Before the club made its announcement, fan Kris Timms contacted the Correspondent yesterday to issue an appeal to stay-away Celtic supporters and football fans in general to turn out on Saturday to support stricken Celtic.
He pointed out with Manchester United, Manchester City and Oldham Athletic not playing this weekend, it was an ideal opportunity for their fans to watch a game.
Kris, 30, who has been following Celtic for 25 years, said: “Some people think there are only 20 teams in football.
“The Premier League is not football, but a business. I worry that in 10 years there will be no non-league football.”
