CHAIRMAN Chris Pinder has urged the town to "pack the ground" at Highworth Town on Saturday when Malvern Town head to Wiltshire for their promotion-relegation play-off match.

Malvern will secure promotion to the Southern League for just the second time in their history if they beat Step 4 Highworth on Saturday, a team that finished third-bottom of the Southern League Division One Central this season.

It is set to be, arguably, the biggest game in the club's history and so Pinder is urging fans to travel down in numbers to the Elms Recreation ground.

"Calling all Malverners, Malvernites and Malvernians and Hillsiders fans. We must mobilise," his open letter read.

"Your support is required this Saturday at 3pm in Highworth (near Swindon) Wiltshire. A win at Highworth on Saturday will secure our promotion to step 4.

"So let’s pack Highworth’s ground with a sea of Malvern supporters and make as much noise as possible to get behind your town’s team.

"The trains are a bit rubbish to Swindon, so I would encourage fans to carpool. Bring your mate, your mum, your dad, bring whoever and get to Highworth; we can and will put on a performance that will justify the effort.

"This group of players have given Malvern supporters a thrilling season. With just one game to go and so much at stake, I believe that we supporters can give back to them with positive support filling the stadium.

"They absolutely deserve the backing of the whole town. Come on Malvern! See you Saturday!"

The game kicks off at 3PM and supporters are advised to share cars down to the ground due to trains not running frequently from Malvern. 

The club are continuing to try and arrange coach travel but with the late notice, it remains unlikely. Stay tuned to the club's social media channels for more information.
