Heys Butchers Name Sausage After Peter Crouch
Peter Crouch is used to moving football clubs, but this must be the first time the new Burnley striker has been welcomed with his own sausage. Crouch had a great debut after winning his side a penalty in the final minute to earn the Clarets a draw with relegation rivals Southampton.
Crouch, joined the Clarets on deadline day will now be able to celebrate his arrival in the north-west with his own sausage “Crouchie’s Red Hot Robot” made by Heys Butchers who will start producing the banger this week. The Burnley based family business asked its customers to choose a name for the Crouch-inspired sausage, with entries such as ‘The Beanpole Banger’ and ‘Two Metre Peter’ not quite making the cut.
They went for Crouchie’s Red Hot Robot as a nod to the former England striker’s much-loved robot celebration, the theme for a club video revealing the new signing and will give it a Mexican twist. Speaking about the sausage owner Danny Heys said, “It would be fantastic to see Peter down at the butchers, he will certainly get a warm welcome and some of his sausages to take home for his tea. We usually only do celebratory sausages for players or managers when they have achieved something at the club, but Crouchie coming to Burnley has really caught the imagination of our customers.”
Burnley fans seem to have embraced the arrival of Crouch, looking out for the well-travelled centre forward with a sign warning him “mind your head lad!” on a bridge near the club’s Turf Moor stadium.
