The international break means Huddersfield Town will be taking a weekend off from the Premier League, but it does not mean there is no football being played in the area.

Saturday, October 7 is Non-League day - a day when fans of Premier League and Championship clubs are encouraged to go and support their local non-league team.

There are some terrific fixtures scheduled in West Yorkshire this Non-League Day, with some clubs offering discounts on tickets for season-ticket holders from professional clubs.

Below, Ben Abbiss provides a quick run down of the non-league fixtures taking place this Saturday and the reasons you should get yourself down.

Ground: Bracken Moor, Stocksbridge, Sheffield, S36 2AN.
