Non League Football: Pub aims to sponsor the worst football team


A search has been kicked off by a Halesowen pub to net the worst football teams to compete for sponsorship worth up to £1,000.

The Flaming Grill pub, the Lutely Oak, is looking for Sunday League and five-a-side teams struggling on a major losing streak.

General manager Bryan Wilson said: “We wanted to give a boost to some of those plugging away at the bottom of the table, by giving the losers a chance to win for a change”

The four best ‘worst’ teams will be chosen from entrants across the UK to compete head-to-head for the sponsorship in a football match.

Teams can nominate themselves through the Flaming Failures app by visiting the Flaming Grill Facebook page www.­facebook.­com/­flaming­gril­lpubs and explain why they think they could be the worst team in the UK.

The deadline for applications is Thursday November 27
