Squires Gate Football Club has literally gone to the dogs.
In a bid to boost the club's limited coffers at the lower reaches of non-league football, the club has come up with a novel idea to encourage healthier attendances at its matches.
Fans can now enjoy a Hot Dog and a ‘warming cuppa’ of tea or coffee at all its home games this season for free by purchasing a copy of the club’s attractive match programme.
The promotion was launched at Tuesday night’s league game with Colne, the idea is the brainchild of Gate chairman Stuart Hopwood who said: “We are always looking for ideas to boost attendances at our games and this is one way we can reward the fans for their loyal support.”
Fans entering the School Road ground for the attractive NWCFL Premier Division fixture with Congleton Town on Saturday August 13th, can, courtesy of a match programme purchase, enjoy admission, a programme, a hot dog and a cup of tea or coffee all for £7 (£5 for Senior Citizens).
