BTSport has announced two selections for screening from the Vanarama National League for November.
After their storming success in September, when they played six and won all six of their fixtures, Bromley will feature for the first time in a live televised match as the Ravens entertain Altrincham on Saturday 14th November with the match kicking off at 12.30pm.
On current form the Ravens may well start favourites but under the guidance of Lee Sinott have no doubts Alty will prove formidable opposition and already have several scalps in their campaign to date including high flying Cheltenham Town. Meanwhile Mark Goldberg will wish to carry on the good work he has already done which includes along picking up the Vanarama ‘Manager of the Month’ award in September. Both clubs also have top class finishers in the shape of Moses Emmanuel and Damian Reeves respectively.
Two weeks later on Saturday 28th November again with a 12.30pm kick off, the cameras return to the south coast for a further visit to the Spitfires of Eastleigh, who after being many pundits favourites for promotion have slipped in recent weeks with manager Richard Hill leaving the club. Who will be the manager in late November may yet still to be decided but interim manager Chris Todd has had many personal battles to face in his life and he will be relishing the chance to be at the helm when they welcome Southport.
This will be the first time in almost two years since the Sandgrounders featured in a live league match and the long journey for Paul Carden’s squad from the North West will be seen as an opportunity to show the rest of the competition that their current lowly position will not be the one they occupy come the end of the season.
Two very contrasting games are on offer and for a number of reasons expect both to be full of lots of action and excitement. All four clubs have a lot to win and without doubt a lot to lose. And that is often a recipe for top class entertainment in the football world.
Both fixtures are scheduled to be screened on BTSport 1.
