In The Spotlight w/ Ryan Butler: Episode 10 – Alex Sykes

Incredibly we are at episode 10 of the In The Spotlight series on Severn Sport and this episode sees us chat to Alex Sykes.

Sykes joins Ryan to talk coming through at Mansfield Town before making the decision to put education first and moving to Gloucestershire for university, before successful spells at Forest Green Rovers, Nuneaton Borough and Gloucester City.

The fan favourite takes us down memory lane to discuss the FA Trophy final of 1999 with Forest Green and the infamous play-off final victory a decade later with Gloucester City.

Ryan also discusses Sykes’ progression into coaching and management at Bishops Cleeve before a successful period with Shortwood United. Plus, Sykes explains his plans for the future and confirms whether he is still interested in a return to management!
