Bridgwater United host Festival of Football this weekend

Written by on August 23, 2021

BRIDGWATER United have set themself the challenge to break their all time attendance record this weekend.

In February 1997, the attendance record was set, when 1112 people watched the match against Taunton Town.

This season Bridgwater United have seen crowds growing steadily, thanks to good results and competitive football, both with the women’s team and then men’s.

For the upcoming weekend, Bridgwater have two home games, the men take on Saltash United on Saturday and the women face Crawley Wasps on Sunday.

With two home games in the one weekend, the club is hosting a Festival of Football and urge locals to get down to Fairfax Park for what should be a great two days.

The weekend begins on the morning of Saturday 28th August when Bridgwater United Community Sports Trust hold their weekly football sessions for young boys and girls for 1-7 year olds.

The match on Saturday will kick off at 3pm but before that, Fast and Furious Football will lead the club’s variety of football themed activities at the ground from 12.30pm when turnstiles will also open.
