Severn Sevens – Butler vs Priday

With the 2021/22 season still in it’s early stages we have decided to bring back our ‘Severn Sevens’ game but with a twist.

For those who have listened to Severn Sport for years you would have heard us run our Severn Sevens competition between Ryan, Kelsey and Matt and this later saw a variation in Kelsey vs Matt during our show on Dean Radio.

Well now we are bringing it back and this time our man Ryan Butler is challenging a member of the Gloucestershire footballing community each week in a new variant of the competition.

So how it will work is Butler and the guest each week will pick the scoreline for seven chosen matches involving Gloucestershire sides, with 20 points awarded for a correct result and 50 points for the correct score. If a game is postponed or abandoned then both Butler and the guest will receive 10 points each.

The guests and Butler on a weekly average will be ranked in a leaderboard, with the winner at the end of the season receiving a prize, TBC.

This weekend’s challenger is Longlevens forward Niall Priday

Here is how the leaderboard currently looks:

Sam Prior – 140 points

Macaulay Herbert; Adam Mace & Freddy Ward – 100 points

George Callinan – 90 points

Joel White; Ellis Parker – 80 points

Butler (weekly average) – 76 points

Josh Loveridge – 70 points

Mark Cornell; Tristan Haswell; Colin Gay- 60 points

Charlie Hughes – 50 points

Danny King – 30 points

*Butler’s Highest scoring gameweek – 150 points (11th September)*
