Felixstowe & Walton director of football Tony Barnes has said his club would happily entertain Friday night football again after a successful experiment with it against Newmarket Town.
The Seasiders kept up their great form with a 6-2 drubbing of the Jockeys in a Thurlow Nunn Premier League clash on Friday, but it was off the pitch where things were just as positive for the east Suffolk side.
“It was a good night,” said Barnes.
“Admittedly the game was all over after the first 16 minutes or so (as Felixstowe went 4-1 up), but we enjoyed a higher-than-average attendance, although as people needed to get home, there was probably a few less drinking in the bar afterwards.
“But yes, I think the club would entertain doing it again – and it gave the players a Saturday off too.”
Felixstowe are enjoying a fine season, with two cup semi-finals to come, in the Thurlow Nunn League Cup and Suffolk Premier Cup.
Off the pitch the club are also looking forward to their 26th Sportsman’s Dinner, which is being help on Maundy Thursday, April 17.

The popular event has raised thousands of pounds for the Seasiders over the years and has been well supported all that time by the local non-league fraternity.
Last year Harry Redknapp made an appearance and the QPR boss is back again this year, along with guest speaker and former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton.
It promises to be a great night for the Seasiders.
