In The Spotlight w/ Ryan Butler: Episode 2 – Matt Rose

Episode 2 of our In The Spotlight series is here! And it is with a man who scored one of Gloucester City’s most important ever goals, Matt Rose.

Rose, who also scored goals in a televised FA Cup match for Newport County and also scored the first goal in City’s 7-2 FA Cup win over Truro City in 2011 – our man Ryan Butler’s first ever goal he commentated on, joins Butler to look back at his time at Cheltenham Town Youth – before an initial spell at City, Cirencester Town, Newport and his return to the Tigers.
