WELWYN Garden City are looking to bring the club back to the community.

That's the message coming from Herns Lane as it gets set to welcome all schoolchildren to home games free of charge for the rest of the season.

Since Del Deanus and Steve Newing took the managerial reins at the club, they have been eager to improve attendances at City.

Deanus said: "We've got to look at getting more people through the gate for home matches.

"We have to make the club more appealable and try and give this club back to the local community.

"The reason I came here is because it's my local club, and I want to see more local people coming to games.

"It's very early days but things are getting put in place to see that the club is run better."

The first opportunity for kids from the local area to see the exciting brand of football Deanus and Newing have brought to Herns Lane is this Saturday.

The Citizens entertain Cockfosters with a 3pm kick-off.

Deanus added: "Fingers crossed the game goes ahead as we all know what the weather has been like."

The Citizens' home game against Biggleswade United has been re-arranged for Tuesday, February 17.
