Hemel Hempstead Town FC are hoping for a bumper crowd on Saturday as they host Weston Super Mare as part of Non League Day 2014.

The Tudors host the Seagulls at Vauxhall Road in the first meeting between the two sides – Hemel’s first Conference South fixture following a 12-day break from action.

Dean Brennan’s side are yet to pick up a point at home this season, although they were unfortunate not to take anything from their last fixture when they went down 2-1 to Concord Rangers.

Weston Super Mare go into the game unbeaten in their two previous matches, having drawn 2-2 at home to Hayes & Yeading United on Saturday.

The game looks set to be a fiercely contested one, and attendance figures are sure to be boosted by the lack of any conflicting Premier League or Championship fixtures due to the international break.

Conference sponsors Vanarama have launched a campaign to break the Non League Day attendance record by teaming up with former England international Matt Le Tissier to encourage fans to get through the turnstiles.

The target is to achieve a Non League Day attendance of more than 50,000 at Vanarama Conference games on the day, breaking the existing record of 39,210 set in 2012.

Vanarama will make a donation on behalf of every fan attending a Vanarama Conference fixture to Prostate Cancer UK, the event’s charity.
