About SoccerCommentator.com  

Since the very first radio and television broadcasts, Commentators and Producers have relied on written notes to keep track of teams and players.

In recent years, the internet has revolutionised our ability to research facts and figures and become an invaluable tool. Some in the industry have created databases or spreadsheets to help organise their personal data. Some still use handwritten notes or sticky labels, yet no one has ever developed online software specifically designed for Commentators, Broadcasters, Journalists and Researchers….but that's all about to change!

Whilst millions of pounds are spent on television and radio rights to cover 'the beautiful game' around the world, those at the sharp end have largely been left to fend for themselves and there's never previously been a co-ordinated effort to bring those in the industry together, so SoccerCommentator.com aims to bridge that gap.

The project is the brainchild of Steve Banyard, a Commentator with 20 years professional experience in radio and television. Steve worked in independent radio in the UK from 1985 to 1999, transforming the sports output on radio stations in Kent and South Yorkshire, before switching to worldwide television in 1999 where he's worked ever since. Steve has covered the game both at national and international level, including the 2002 FIFA World Cup, working for companies like TWI, HBS and Sky.

Working alongside Steve is Peter Brown, a retired businessman with a lifelong passion for Newcastle United. When Peter's family business was sold off in 1985, he devoted his life to his family and to teaching until retiring in 2005. Peter provides the business acumen behind the scenes.

The programming expert is Steve Dolan, who specialises in the development of web-based databases. Steve was employed by Cromwell Software until 2005, when he set up his own company, Pixel Concepts, and, working with Steve Banyard's designs, he's implemented them with clarity and precision to offer Members state-of-the-art software.

The aim of the project is to bring Commentators and Broadcasters together and provide them with online tools to make their jobs easier, more efficient and more satisfying - to help everyone become a better Commentator or more effective Producer.

With your support, we hope the project will reach all corners of the globe and go from strength to strength. Thank you for your interest.
