Scunthorpe United mascot Scunny Bunny

A day in the life..

Ever wondered what a football mascot does on his day off? We bring you the inside story of Scunthorpe United's 'Scunny Bunny'.

It's not easy being a football team's mascot. It's hard graft and a full time job for Scunthorpe United's Scunny Bunny.

As you'll see in our film he's often seen at the gym in training. Training that he puts to good use as each year he's forced to run in the mascots' race at Newmarket.

But the question is what does he do on his day off? Professional footballers may like a round of golf but did you know that mascots have hobbies too? Quite a few of them are keen trainspotters.

Away from the glitz and glamour of the pitch mascots also do the things that most of us do, like shopping, washing up and even watching the telly.
