Lincoln United's Ashby Avenue

Lincoln United are offering fans the opportunity to “pay what they want”, as the club face Deeping Rangers on Non-League Day.

Fans will be able to pay any amount they choose to watch the United Counties Premier Division North fixture, on Saturday, March 23.

Speaking to The Linc, The Whites’ vice-chairman Sam Wilkinson said: “We want to offer any fans to pay what they want on the gate. They can pay £1, help support the club by paying the normal price or even a bit more.”

“With our recent success, especially in the FA Vase, were hoping the people of Lincoln and the surrounding areas will come along and support the lads,” he added.

United are currently second in the table, sitting at step 5 in the English football league pyramid. They won the Lincolnshire FA’s County Senior Trophy on Wednesday night and are in the latter-stages of the league cup as well.

They still have their eyes on a date at Wembley in a potential Isuzu FA Vase final, having reached a club record semi-final with victory over Deal Town earlier in March.

Wilkinson said: “We did this last season and it was a real success. So, we wanted to try it again in hope we get a good crowd.”

Non-league day was set-up in 2010, and has grown over the years to become a feature of the football calendar.

Scheduled for an international break, the initiative provides a way for football fans to visit a non-league club.

On their official website, Non-League Day write: “It provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of affordable volunteer-led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side.”

The Whites welcome Lincolnshire rivals Deeping Rangers to Ashby Avenues’ Sun-hat Villas & Resorts Stadium.

Lincoln’s vice-chairman, Wilkinson, said: “We’re still chasing down Sherwood Colliery at the top of the table, and we will keep fighting until the end. It would be great to give something back to our fans, but also encourage some new supporters at a price they think is fair and reasonable.”
