Longlevens goalkeeper Kane Winman will be re-joining the Severn Sport commentary team for Thursday’s FA Youth Cup tie, Gloucester City vs Cirencester Town.
Winman, who has appeared in the competition during his time at Gloucester City U18s, will be part of our matchday broadcast team at City’s Meadow Park stadium.
The Levens stopper joined us for a run of commentaries last season after breaking his collarbone during his side’s 3-2 defeat at local rivals Fairford Town and was in commentary action for Tommy Callinan’s history making winner in Longlevens’ FA Vase 1st Round win over Cowes Sports.
Winman has since made his return to First Team action and was confirmed as one of Severn Sport’s sponsored players for the 2020/21 season.
Head of Programming Ryan Butler had this to say about the news:
We are delighted that Kane will be able to join us on commentary for the game on Thursday.
For me it is a big night as it is the first game to be played at the re-built Meadow Park and the fact we are able to be there anyway is huge for us, so I wanted to add an extra dynamic to our commentary and Kane provides that.
Through his experience playing at U18s level and in the FA Youth Cup, as well as the fact he has been on commentary with us before, means he is able to pass on what it was like as an U18s player playing in a competition like that and against some of the sides that City side faced!
As I said it’s a big night for us and I feel that having that extra dynamic will help us provide the best coverage possible.
Severn Sport will be live from Meadow Park just after 19:00 ahead of the 19:30 kick off and will also be chatting to Gloucester City Chairman Alex Petheram about the finished stadium, the proposals for fans being allowed back in and his thoughts ahead of the new National League North season.
