BASKETBALL: Flagging fortunes will be far from bad news for CWA Fury tomorrow at Lynnsport.
Peckham Pride are the visitors in the National League, 6pm, for a match designated Fury Flag Day, where players and fans are encouraged to bring their national flag to fly high during the game, more so when Fury score. Drums and anything that makes a noise are also welcome to ensure a lively atmosphere.
Anyone who does bring a flag will receive a £1 discount from the £5 entry (adults, £3 u16s).
Club promoter Kevin Holland said: “What the guys are doing this year is beyond our wildest dreams. If we were told back in September we would be on the coat tails of the top teams we would have laughed at you.
“We know how intimidating the Fury Family can be. When the drums start and the crowd rise to the occasion, the players can do nothing but respond.
“The sea of colour will be a spectacle and being there, being part of it and feeling the rhythm of the Fury in full flow is like no other sporting experience.”
Fury have won 11 times and sit in third place. Six of their last seven Division Four South East games are at home and the club have come up with some promotions to help boost the crowd numbers.
Mini season tickets will be available tomorrow. Admission is normally £5 per match for adults, £3 for u16s, but there will be an offer of six games for the price of four – £20 adults, £12 u16s.
λ Fury went out into the community recently with a bag pack at Tesco helping raise more than £500 towards kit and expenses.
Twenty-plus youngsters were joined by fans’ favourite Eivydas Aleksa.
