Bungay v Bungay

The other week I was honoured to commentate on a truly historic and unique football match in the Suffolk town of Bungay. Unique because it was the first game in the world in which the two teams, all the players, the match officials and the even the physios and mascot all shared the surname Bungay. Obviously, it was easy-peasy from a commentary point of view, which was lucky because I had never actually commentated on a game before. Unless you count Subbuteo. It was the brainchild of Shaun Cole from Bungay Town FC and ad exec Bil Bungay from the agency Beattie McGuinness Bungay, for whom I do a bit of consultancy work from time to time. Anyway, it was a cracking day, all in aid of the Beattie Foundation, a lovely charity helping society’s most vulnerable out of scrapes (http://www.beattiefoundation.com/). We got a ton of press for it, including this http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4303266/Bungay-Vs-Bungay.html The video below will give you a flavour of what went down.
