Non-League Bungay Town Attempt To Draw Fans By Giving Away Free Mushrooms

By Chris Wright


These are mushrooms, in case you were wondering

With “Non-League Day” looming this weekend, Suffolk-based non-league side Bungay Town are hoping to bring in some extra fans for their home tie against Martham by plying supporters with a free gift.

The gift in question being a punnet of mushrooms – completely gratis with every match ticket!

Yeah, thought that might grab your attention.

“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, who are currently toiling away in the Anglian Combination Division Two, side gave fans 5p each to attend their Non-League Day fixture.

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

With a giveaway that exciting, we’ll be surprised if there’s…ahem…mushroom left in the ground come kick-off!

    If Bungay Town’s marketing director worked for England, maybe they wouldn’t have played in a half-empty Wembley yesterday

    Was there an England game on?
