Eynesbury are attempting to reward their loyal supporters and entice new ones with an innovative pricing scheme for their two remaining United Counties League Premier Division matches of the season.
Rovers host Oadby Town at Hall Road this Saturday and then welcome Thurnby Nirvana on April 25 as they bring the curtain down on a pleasing top-flight return which could still end in a top-10 finish.
And they are running a ‘Pay What You Want’ offer for both fixtures with the minimum price for admission being set at £1.
Boss Martin Field said: “It is a great idea and a good gesture from the club. Hopefully it will bring a few people through the door.
“We have a decent young side who have done well in their first season back in the Premier Division and try to play the game the right way.”
Eynesbury drew 1-1 at relegation battlers Harborough on Saturday when failing to hold onto an early advantage provided by Tom Coles’ header.
They were in considerably better form on Tuesday night when emerging talent Jordan Nicholson hit his fourth hat-trick of the season to earn a 3-1 victory over top-six side Yaxley at Hall Road.

Nicholson drilled in the opening goal after a quarter-of-an-hour and was left unmarked to double the advantage 10 minutes before the break.
Under 18 goalkeeper Louis Cook impressed between the sticks with a fine double-save just before the hour, but he couldn’t prevent Yaxley from halving their arrears soon after.
But Eynesbury sealed victory when Lee Bassett burst clear down the right and delivered a low cross for strike-partner Nicholson to complete his latest treble and extend Rovers’ unbeaten run to five matches.
