There was live music and competitions on offer with Mark Murphy and Ipswich Town legend Kevin Beattie presenting their Life’s a Pitch show for BBC Radio Suffolk in the ground.

Russell Ward, club chairman, said: “It’s been absolutely fantastic. We had a decent crowd of 410 people.

“We won 2-0 against Bognor Regis, who are about fourth in the (Ryman Premier) league, and we’re 14th-15th, so it was a good day.

“We want to get people behind us and I think we were worthy of the three points, today so hopefully they will come back.

“The first 50 people through the gate got a T-shirt from Greene King.”

The day also saw the launch of the club’s new sponsorship deal with Bury St Edmunds-based brewer Greene King.
