Anyone remember the old matchday announcer?

Recommended Posts

Think his name was Bob?

Used to read out all the scores at half time


And when I mean he used to read out all the half time scores


He used to read out ALL the half time scores


Non league upwards

Got roundly booed most half times

Anyone remember his full name?

No it wasn't your talking crap. :-) Only 1 name I really remember was Stevie Splash, probably the first and best one I can recall.

I do remember Stevie Splash, he must've been the original inspiration for Smashie & Nicey

 

One stand-out memory was the League Cup tie v Liverpool, Jan'84

Full house and this joker decides to commemorate the occasion by having a pre-match and half time 'Battle of the Bands'

Liverpool were represented by The Beatles

Sheffield? Human League

 

I still cringe now remembering how all those scousers laughed

Beatles never produced albums of the quality of Reproduction or Travelogue.

I quite like the current bloke - right balance of seriousness and sense of humour and hasn't got an annoying voice.

Shaun must have being doing it 20 years now.

I think you are on about a different bloke. Shortish fella with grey hair. Remember around late 80s he was the stadium announcer.

 

Bob C?.........cannot remember his last name.
