Bungay Town entice fans with free mushrooms

Attendees to Bungay Town's home fixture this weekend will receive quite the healthy giveaway.
Attendees to Bungay Town's home fixture this weekend will receive quite the healthy giveaway.

What with the big boys away on international duty and all, this coming Saturday has been unofficially renamed as "Non-League Day" in the lower reaches of the English football pyramid, with non-league sides putting on a bit of a shindig in an attempt to attract disillusioned Premier League fans to their matches and help support the grass-roots game.

To that end, Bungay Town, of the Suffolk-based Anglian Combination Division Two, have cooked up one heck of a giveaway to entice punters to their home fixture against Martham on Saturday.

In an attempt to get bums on seats at their Maltings Meadow Sports Ground, Town are giving away a small basket of mushrooms with every match ticket!

How could you possibly refuse?

"We have a supplier of mushrooms so we thought 'Why not? The former chairman is a mushroom grower'," vice-chairman Shaun Cole told BBC Sport.

Last season, Bungay Town gave fans five pence each to attend their Non-League Day fixture, to great success.

"Last year we had a 60-70% attendance increase on the day," Cole added. "I would be delighted if we can get that again."
