Sound of Football Podcast 351 - Non-League Day

This weekend just gone was Non-League Day here in England; an annual event organised to encourage fans of top flight clubs to check out clubs much lower down the league system.

With anything involving football, nothing, even something as seemingly harmless as trying to get people to go to non-league games, can have its nay-sayers but if these voices are from those attending regular non-league games should those concerns be addressed? As an increasingly popular part of the football calendar, it's no wonder organisations outside of the target audience want to lend their support but can that desire lead to a misdirection of purpose or worse lend itself to accusations of appropriation?

As regular non-league goers themselves Graham, Terry and Jan look at what problems non-league clubs have at attracting crowds and why, for them, there are far more than one non-league day per year.
