Worst football club fan food revealed as Man Utd serves up scrambled egg with mashed potato

MANCHESTER United’s catering failed to score with BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey this weekend as he cried foul over the meal he was served at Old Trafford during the Red Devils’ clash with Southampton.

He tweeted: “Scrambled egg and mashed potato. Wow. Thanks for lunch @ManUtd.”

But United’s Theatre of Dreams is far from being the only football ground to have received a kicking for its food.

Twitter account @FootyScran is dedicated to finding the nastiest nosh – as well as the nicest – on offer at stadiums across the country.

Lower-league clubs often come up trumps, putting bigger teams to shame, with giant portions and gourmet grub at bargain prices.

Here we reveal the top scorers, as well as the overpriced offerings that deserve to be shown a red card.

Dulwich Hamlet

BEST – Chicken Gyros, £7

Fans of this South London side can tuck into this tasty-looking Greek-inspired kebab

Braintree Town

Monster burger, £5.50

The non-league Essex club should be top of the scran-pionship – thanks to its double pattie, bacon, onion and melted cheese

Birmingham City

Cheesy chips, £4

Fans get a real Brum deal at the Championship club – this portion of pricey chips with a slice of plastic cheese is a relegation candidate

Hull City

Hot Dog, £5.50

This mean chilli-dog, with juicy jalapenos in a home-baked crusty roll gives the Championship side’s long-suffering fans one Hull-uva kick

Man City Women

Pie and potato wedges, £5

The club need to crust do better than this bite-size pie with five anaemic-looking potato wedges and gravy


Cheesy chips, £3.50

When it comes to a portion of cheesy chips this is the Wey to go

FC United of Manchester

Steak pie, peas and gravy with a pint, £6.40

This Manc-y pitchside pie looks like it’s drowning in peas and gravy


Chicken Tandoori pie, £2.50

This messy pie maybe cheap, but it won’t curry favour with fans of the League Two outfit


Chinese box, £10

The Royals serve up a half-time feast fit for a Queen with its great value Chinese selection box

Tottenham Hotspur

Salmon and noodles with a pint

There’s something fishy going on with the North London side’s hospitality – this paltry portion is barely enough to feed a child

Merthyr Town FC

Sausages, chips and curry sauce in a cob, £4.50

The semi-pro South Wales club has taken the chip butty to a whole new dimension of satisfaction

St Albans FC

Cheeseburger, £5

A cheeseburger that was bought by a punter at the Hertfordshire club left quite a lot to be desired – including half its bun

West Bromwich

Pizza slice, £4

Hungry fans at this Championship club might wish they had stoked up outside the stadium if this measly little dried-up quarter of a pizza is anything to go by

Nairn County FC

Good Pie In A Roll, £2.50

Known as a Wigan kebab – though the club is in the Scottish Highlands – the meat pie in a barm cake is a bargain at £2.50

Boreham Wood

Double cheeseburger in a hot dog roll, £5

The Hertfordshire club’s Boreham burger offers two patties for the price of one – net result!


WORST – Hot dog, £5.90

A fan was left with the blues after shelling out nearly six quid and getting this weeny wiener which was dwarfed by the roll
