All smiles for Alex Wright and Ryan King ahead of their game with Hallen.


Alex Wright has called on Clevedon Town to make the Everyone Active Stadium a ‘difficult’ place for teams to come, starting with their game against Hallen this afternoon.

Despite winning all their games in September, The Seasiders have gone on to lose their last three games in all competitions.

And Assistant Manager Wright says another challenge awaits them against The Armadillos this afternoon.

"It will be a really good game for us, he said.

"We've started the season well, a couple of blips recently but hopefully we can put on a winning run together, which we have done recently and climb back up the league.

"We've been good at home this year, we've played some really good stuff.

"We've scored a lot of goals and we want to make this a difficult place for sides to come and make it a real fortress and we have done it so far this season."

Today's game is one of many celebrating Non League, where fans all over the country are encouraged to watch their local side and Wright has called on people to come down and support his team.

"Come on down and support the lads as its Non League Day," he added.

"We are an exciting side, there's no doubt about that,

"We've scored the second most in the league and conceded up there with the most.

"There's no doubt we are entertaining side and we win a lot of games with high scoring.

"We are young, we are local and it's a really good opportunity for people to come on down and really support the club, because it's going in the right direction.

"With a good youth structure that's coming though, it's a really good group of players, a really good group of lads and they have been together for a few years now.

"We are starting to see the rewards of these players coming through and we want to get back and start that winning run again."

With the club run by a host of volunteers, there will also be people selling merchandise from shirts to badges to programmes and Wright says there is something for everyone.

"For people who love Non League, groundhoppers, or just want to come down for the first time, there will be stuff down here.

"Maybe a little bit different to what they are maybe used too, but it's your local club.

It's good to come down and support us, even if it's every now and then.

"It's just kind of see what's going on and you never know you might come down and might enjoy it.

"Suddenly, you find yourself coming down next Tuesday and then Tuesday becomes a Saturday and then Saturday becomes a month and you never know.

"It's a good opportunity for people to come on down and really see what the club is all about."
