Faversham Town are offering free admission to supporters for their final pre-season friendly against Ryman League Division 1 North side Aveley at Salters Lane on Saturday.
Boss Ray Turner is hoping for another good turnout and said:" I’ve tried to get fixtures that would capture the imagination and get people through the gate – and they have.
"We wanted to give something back this week and we’ve made it free admission to say thank you to them.”
Turner saw the Lilywhites lose 6-1 at home to a strong Gillingham Xl in midweek, and qui pped it might have been better had his side not scored first.
He said: “We were really competitive for an hour and I thought we should have gone into the break on level terms, if not in the lead (Gills led 2-1).
“It was only in that final 30 minutes or so when I made some changes that weakened us a bit. It was then they (Gills) took control and dominated.
“I am not down at all about the result. There were some real promising signs and some great performances from my players with the league kick-off just around the corner."
Turner was pleased with the performances of scorer Dean Grant and his strike partner Renford Tenyue against the Gills.
Tenyue and substitute Liam Stone, his first senior goal for the club, netted in the 2-1 win over Ashford United last weekend
