‘Vegan team’ to play in the Football League

“Cheltenham, Swindon, Newport – You’re going to eat hummus at the New Lawn next season as Forest Green Rovers have been promoted to the Football League.” So raved Bob Hunt of BBC Radio Gloucestershire as the so-called ‘vegan team’ claimed a place in Football League Division Two next season with a 3-1 win over Tranmere Rovers at Wembley Stadium in the National League play-off final on Sunday 14 May (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39850996). Forest Green Rovers are located in Nailsworth (which, with a population of 5,794, will become the smallest town ever to host an English Football League club) and the catering at their ground is entirely vegan in keeping with the principles of owner Dale Vince, CEO of green energy provider Ecotricity. Nailsworth also boasts a vegan restaurant Asparagasm (see the post dated 17 April 2017) and two independent health food stores.
