We’ve listened back to some of the best goal commentaries and some strange moments in the Severn Sport commentary box, but now we are letting our commentator, Ryan Butler give us his top three favourite games he has commentated on over the past four years.
3) Gloucester City 5-1 Bishop Stortford (2/10/12)
It was a cold Tuesday night and the gloucester team were down to the bones. Boris got in a couple of loanees in from Bristol rovers and it was Mitch Harding who broke the deadlock in this 5-1 win. Fellow loanee Goddard scored the goal of the night. It rejuvenated the season for me.
2) Gloucester City 7-2 Truro City (15/10/11)
Everyone remembers there first match and this was my first city game let alone commentating on it if that wasn’t good enough it was an FA Cup game too! It was an incredible scoreline and the rest is history.
1) Gloucester City 1-0 Chippenham Town (20/10/12)
That FA cup game against Chippenham. The talk was the fact city hadn’t qualified for the FA cup proper in decades and today they managed it. I was a part of history. A great atmosphere and support the team deserves.
Tomorrow we look at Ryan’s worst games he has covered live for Severn Sport. Join us on Saturday from 14:30 as we start our fifth season covering Gloucester City live with full match commentary on Gloucester City vs FC United Of Manchester in the Vanarama National League North plus we’ll have live updates from the other games involving local sides including Cheltenham’s visit to Lincoln and Forest Greens opening day trip to Altrincham.
