    Bognor Regis hit out at BT Sport for what was said about non league

    Football was back on our screens this weekend, but one moment caused Bognor Regis hit out at BT Sport for what was said about non league.

    The comments were made during the first ever Premier League to be broadcast at 3pm, which saw Brighton come out on top with a 2-1 win over Arsenal.

    Neal Maupay scored the winner five minutes into added time over the Gunners, who had earlier seen goalkeeper Bernd Leno stretchered off.

    It was Pepe that opened the scoring with just over 20 minutes remaining, a superb curling shot gave Arsenal a deserved lead.

    However Lewis Dunk slid in to bundle home an equaliser from close range following a corner seven minutes later.

    After scoring for the relegation threatened side, comments were made, belittling non league.

    Ian Darke, commentator for the game, could be heard saying: “Lewis Dunk must be used to playing in a stadium with no fans as he used to play for Bognor Regis Town”

    He ended up getting slammed from the Isthmian League Premier Division outfit as well as the non league community.

    Bognor took to Twitter, saying: “@btsport if you want to make disparaging comments about Non-League can we remind you how the whole #NonLeagueFamily is on its knees.

    “Can we also remind you many current Premier League stars made their way into the game via Non-League football.

    “@vardy7 being a good example 👍

    “‘Lewis Dunk must be used to playing in a stadium with no fans as he used to play for Bognor Regis Town’

    “Very disrespectful comment @btsport about the whole of the non league game 👎

    After one fan stated how it was a subtle dig from the commentator, the club replied: “It really was, many clubs will sadly not get through this and there we have those involved at the top making cheap shots and clubs who are literally “struggling to survive” on Prime TV 😢 #NonLeagueFamily”

    Folkestone Invicta also had their say: “It was a shame to hear the comments on BT Sport such a shame they know nothing about Non League!”

    No apology has come from Ian Darke as far as we know.
