By | 6th September 2013

Arsenal will lend a hand to Boreham Wood FC, a club in the 6th tier of English football, this weekend by providing their luxury coach to bus the Wood players to their away match against Weston Super Mare, according to the the Mirror. The players will ride the bus to and from the Weston stadium that is 148 miles away from their own stadium. The act from Arsenal is due to the club participating in Non-League Day this Saturday.

Boreham Wood is managed by former Arsenal winger Ian Allinson and also hosts the Arsenal Ladies and Arsenal academy sides. Arsenal club secretary David Miles spoke out to recognize Arsenal’s involvement in the event.

“We have enjoyed a very strong relationship with Boreham Wood FC over the years and are delighted to have the opportunity to help the team with their travel on Non-League Day again this year. We wish Ian Allinson and his players all the best for the match,” Miles said, according to the Mirror.

Non-League Day is an event started as a social media experiment to recognize the thousands of lower league clubs and players that are part of the England Football Association. Taking place on September 7th, it has become an annual event that is backed by Premier League and Championship side clubs, celebrities, charities, media organizations, and the lower league clubs themselves.

Arsenal will not be utilizing their coach this weekend due to the international break for the Premier League. Non-League Day is always scheduled for a weekend that occurs during international matches.
