Full match action of Melksham Town’s away game against Paulton Rovers in Evo-Stik League South Division One, will be broadcast, online, on Tuesday August 21st.
Experienced commentator, Ian Nockolds, who many Melksham fans will remember as the presenter of the Toolstation Western League Podcast, will have a foot in both camps. Ian said, “During my time at Somer Valley I had the pleasure of commentating on friendlies between Paulton and Melksham, but never a League game. Having lived in Melksham for 8 years I’ve adopted them as my local team, but the time I spent covering Paulton means they will always have a very special place in my heart. I’ll be the only person at the game who doesn’t care about the result!”
Melksham and Paulton have a rich shared history. Initially competing against each other in the Western League, the now Melksham Town Chairman, Darren Perrin, was the manager that took Paulton Rovers into the Southern League. On the pitch the likes of Lee Davidson, Mike Perrott, Sam Jordan, Rob Brown and Luke Ballinger have all represented both Clubs.
Returning to the commentary box alongside Ian will be Paulton press officer, Tony Walsh, with second half commentary featuring Darren Perrin.
Full match commentary of the Evo-Stik League clash will be broadcast online at www.spreaker.com/user/nockers from 7:45pm on Tuesday August 21st. Further information about the match, including team news, will be available on both Club websites, as well as www.somervalleyfm.co.uk/.
