MagpieWatch becomes MagpiesLive
As we continue to adopt a more professional approach to our activities the match day commentary service MagpieWatch has been rebranded as MagpiesLive to better reflect the service it provides. MagpieWatch was set up several years ago by Ian Livesey and Julian Vass as an internet based commentary service for fans in exile or unable to attend games. Last season the Supporters Trust stepped in to sponsor the service by providing a 3G dongle to facilitate the commentaries and linking the service to this website. This season we have also teamed up with our friends at Chorley FM to broadcast the commentary live on 102.8 FM for people in the local area as well as streaming through their website and mobile phone app, stomach thus making the commentary available to an even wider audience.
MagpiesLive commentator, there Ian Livesey said: “With the recent developments to the commentary service the time is right for a rethink on the name. MagpiesLive has a certain ring to it and actually makes sense as “watch” indicates using your eyes rather than your ears. MagpiesLive will work particularly well and broaden the appeal given our new relationship with Chorley FM.
Supporters Trust Chair, Ryan Modlin added: “Over the years Ian has developed both his service and his style of commentary into something everyone connected with Chorley Supporters Trust and Football Club can be proud of. The new relationship with Chorley FM points to the professional approach Ian takes in providing this service and this name change reflects that approach.”
Commentary for all Chorley FC matches, home and away can be found on the dedicated MagpiesLive page of the Supporters Trust website www.cfcst.org/magpieslive and if you’re within Chorley FM’s broadcast range you can listen on FM radio by tuning in to 102.8.
