Severn Sport are delighted to announce that our very own Ryan Butler has been named as a judge in the Football Content Awards 2021.
Butler joined the likes of Robbie Lyle and Troopz of Arsenal fans’ popular YouTube channel AFTV, Sky Sports Broadcasters like Bianca Westwood and Faye Carruthers and a whole host of professionals working in the football industry, from players to content creators, in being named on the list of judges for the 2021 event of the awards.
The awards ceremony takes place at The Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on Thursday 14th October and sees 17 award categories and a further 30-sub categories contested with some of the best football content creators in the country up for nominations.
Severn Sport have been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Best In Non-League, Small Business’ category along with our good friends Football In Berkshire, having made the shortlist in 2020 as well.

Butler has cast his vote as a judge in the last week and has had this to say after being named on the list of judges.
“Back in the 90s when I first began watching football I loved it. Not even just playing it, I just love watching football. Watching the off-the-ball movements, seeing tactics being implemented and seeing players growing into the occasion.
You can hear on the commentaries I do now with Severn Sport and when I talk about games I watch, I enjoy the theatre and the storytelling of a game of football. Each game is a work of art and each player or official or coach or even fan is an important piece of that art unfolding in front of your very eyes.
To be in a position where I find myself nominated for an award along my best friend in Kelsey for the second year in a row is mind-blowing, but to have been asked to apply and then be successful in becoming a judge at the event is just nuts. I am still in disbelief.
When we started Severn Sport we wanted to give clubs a voice. We wanted to give them a voice that said to everyone outside the county that Gloucestershire is as good for high quality football as anywhere, and together we are doing that, all of us!
So for me to be flying the flag for Gloucestershire football in this way makes me very proud and shows that our voices are being heard. #WestIsBest and we all know it!”
