The 2017/18 football season is well under way and with pre-season and August under the belt we are starting to have an idea of how our local sides are shaping up.
In August we’ve covered both rounds of the FA Cup, Hellenic league, Southern League & National League football and it continues with a busy September schedule.
We kick off September with the next round of the FA Cup as Tuffley Rovers host Southern League side Swindon Supermarine. We then have a Longlevens double with a mid-week league game and an FA Vase away trip. Two days later we’re back in the National League with radio commentary of Gloucester City v Hampton & Richmond. We follow that with a midweek Gloucestershire Derby, Longlevens vs Fairford in the Hellenic League.
Our first trip of the season to Kayte Lane follows as Bishops Cleeve host Bideford. We stay in Cheltenham the following day as we watch Cheltenham Town Ladies in our first ladies match day live coverage on Severn Sport. We then have a midweek Hellenic double followed by a trip to see Cirencester’s new 3G pitch as they host Evesham.
October is a quieter month for matches and it starts with a visit to the Forest as Cinderford take on Slimbridge in the bigfreebet.com challenge cup first round. We then take a trip to Cinder Lane to enjoy a Spikes burger as they host Kidlington in the Hellenic Prem. A midweek trip to Tuffley Rovers after that as they host Hallen in the Challenge Cup. The only other confirmed game in October takes us back to Bishops Cleeve as they host fellow Gloucestershire side, Shortwood United in the Southern League
September 23rd & 30th, October 14th, 21st & 28th are all to be confirmed as we await the progress of the Gloucestershire teams in the FA Cup, Vase and Trophy competitions.
Radio commentary games will be announced closer to matches with all matches to be covered on the GoalShouter app and on our social media.
