When Caversham United met AS Roma




All in social media cyber space of course, but episode seven of Berkshire Football Stories brings us to a bit of an online phenomenon in Reading & District Sunday League side Caversham United.

We spoke to manager, admin, secretary and player, Paul Gutteridge about how the club – which at one point looked like it might fold – went from your average Sunday League side to one than can count among its famous twitter followers, Serie A side AS Roma and the Bundesliga’s Bayer Leverkusen.

As well as social media, Paul also discusses the tournament the club set up in the summer in aid of the charity Balls To Cancer which saw clubs from around the country visit Reading and what sort of shape he thinks Sunday League is in at the moment.
