Margate launch a half-term takeover to bring in the crowds at Hartsdown Park

Monday 12th February 2018

It's the start of another busy period for Margate, as they look to host their biggest crowd of the season as they continue to climb up the Bostik Premier Division.

On the back of six wins in a row, The Gate have announced plans where fans can watch two games for just £10, in the hope to get a record crowd to Hartsdown Park this season.

A Blues Half-Term Takeover will take place from 10am to 6pm on Saturday (17 February).

Fans will have the opportunity to watch the club’s equally in-form rising stars play from 12pm, as Jay Stubberfield’s Under 21s side take on FFD TV, before the first team host bottom-of-the-table Burgess Hill Town.

Youngsters are also being offered a FREE first session with Margate Youth hosting open training, skills, drills and fun games from 10am to 11:30am. The family fun will continue until kick-off with speed cages, face painting, arts and crafts all planned to run alongside the Hartsdown Bar which will be open all day.

For more information head over to or call the club directly on 01843 221769.

Big-spending Billericay Town are, as expected, top of the table with 64 points from 25 games, a point above Dulwich Hamlet, who have played six games more.

Steven Watt’s Margate, meanwhile are in third-place in the table with 63 points in the bag from 33 games, while Folkestone Invicta are in fourth with 56 points from 31 games, while Staines Town are in the final play-off berth with 55 points from 31 outings.
