BBC Football Commentator John Motson is going to be our special guest at our latest speaker evening in May.
John Motson – Motty to his many fans – is one of the best known personalities in sports broadcasting. A member of the Match of the Day team for 40 years, he is regarded by many as the voice of football.
From 1979 to 2008 John Motson was the BBC’s voice on major cup finals – FA Cup, European Championship and World Cup, including his record-breaking sixth World Cup Final in Berlin in 2006 and his 29th FA Cup Final in May 2008, an achievement not reached by any other commentator.
The event will take place on Thursday 15th May and he will be supported by a top funny man.
