Sport on Freeview W/C May 21st 2016

Welcome to this week’s blog.  Lots of great free sport – the French Open on ITV… David Haye live on Dave…  England’s pre-Euro 2016 games on ITV… see below for transmission times… Chris

Salford City:

Congratulations to Salford City who have been promoted to the National League North. You may have seen the brilliant BBC1 documentary ‘Class of 92’ – the good news is that a new series is in the pipeline.  But, did you know that you can catch FREE weekly highlights of Salford’s games throughout the season?  Whilst we have a bit of a football drought before the Euro 2016 games start, take a look at this link…and catch up with some of their games from this season.

 

This is the link to Salford’s You Tube page – with a vast collection of highlights and interviews. The highlights are made by a team of students from the University of Salford, they really do a terrific job.  I asked commentator Will Moorcroft a few questions about their coverage…

 

Chris     

So you commentate on Salford games for You Tube – what’s the best game you have commentated on so far?

 

Will

Best one I’ve commentated on so far, would probably have to the play off final against Workington. The semi-final was great, and to be fair both Darlington games were… apart from the results!  Stourbridge and Stamford away were pretty exciting ones too.

 

Chris

Will coverage continue next year with Salford getting promotion?

 

Will

Coverage will definitely be carrying on, I’m missing it already even if the listeners aren’t missing my voice! Hoping to make a few improvements too so it will be continuous and get more people involved!

 

Chris

I studied Media Production at Salford – finished 13 years ago! How has the university been for you?

 

Will

University was amazing, the facilities are second to none and the staff and lecturers have been so supportive and helpful, and continue to be now I work alongside them, now it feels great to be creating opportunities like these for students.

 

Chris

So tell our readers when do matches normally get uploaded to You Tube (e.g if it’s a 3pm Saturday game when are highlights normally online)?

 

Will

We try to get them out the following evening… If there are any particularly good goals we’ll clip those up immediately as possible and get them out, like when Pooley scored against Southport, we got that out the same evening and it went viral/crazy!

 

Chris

Does your coverage include away games (if it does, you may well be on my doorstep next year – Bradford Park Avenue not far away from where I live!)
Will

Yeah, we started off just doing home games in the 2014/15 season, but last season covered all away games too; I think the only game we didn’t manage to get highlights out for was Whitby (h) because of the ridiculous weather conditions, the cameras weren’t able to work properly. The other new addition that came in this year was putting the real time commentary on the highlights instead of doing it afterwards, and I think I am allowed to say so myself but it is infinitely better than doing it post-match, a lot more reactive, up-to-date, and I hope exciting for people who watch / listen!

Chris

Thanks for the interview Will – I’d love to join you as a commentator one week!  People, listen up!  Subscribe to Salford City on You Tube today, that’s what I’ve done, easy to do – and catch all of the highlights so far, and for future games too!
