With the international break suspending the Premier League and Championship programmes this weekend, the FA is encouraging supporters to get behind their local teams on national Non-League Day.

Both Holwell Sports and Melton Mowbray are at home in league action on Saturday and could do with your support.

Holwell aim to return to form in the East Midlands Counties League when they host Aylestone Park at Welby Road (3pm).

Two successive defeats have dropped them from the top six to 15th, but Sports have games in hand on all teams above them and lie just four points off seventh place.

Melton are clicking into gear after a slow start and host Barlestone St Giles at Hoby Road, Asfordby (3pm).

Mowbray again have Senior League title ambitions and lie seventh in the Premier, just six points behind second-placed Sileby.
