March Town boss Mel Mattless has called for support ahead of a big occasion at the GER on Saturday.
The Hares entertain higher-level Peterborough Northern Star in the opening round of the FA Vase.
And Mattless is hopeful his young side can cause a shock after an encouraging start to the Thurlow Nunn League First Division season.
The Hares suffered just a second league loss when being beaten 2-0 at Whitton last weekend.
“The FA Vase is a big competition and everyone looks forward to being involved in it,” said Mattless.

“Having a good run in it creates a real buzz and the prize money is a massive thing for clubs at our level.
“Hopefully plenty of people will come out and get behind in what looks a really tough test against a Step 5 team.”

March made progress in another knockout competition last night (Tuesday) when coming through a Thurlow Nunn League First Division KO Cup penalty shoot-out.
They beat Needham Market Reserves 4-2 from the spot after a 2-2 deadlock.
The Hares – under the guidance of reserve chief Ashton Hodgson with Mattless and assistant Roy Brand both away – recovered from being 2-0 down thanks to strikes from Toby Allen and a Max Mattless equaliser.
Goalkeeper Dave Beeny then took centre stage with two vital saves in the shoot-out.
