Vanarama National League South Hungerford Town had a special visitor to their recent friendly with Oxford United – James Kirtland aka SoccerAm’s ‘Curly’!

This wasn’t for the Sky Sports show however, James was visiting Hungerford for another reason, namely, a YouTube channel called Location Football which is working to promote the grassroots game – with all the style and panache you’d expect from one of Sky’s most famous TV shows.

We asked James to tell us a little about Location Football and he said: “We are trying to raise the profile of Non-League Football and shine the light on the amazing people within each club whilst hopefully producing an entertaining video for fans to enjoy. Supporting local football is so important.”

We quite agree!

Head over to YouTube to watch more great videos here. In the meantime, here are our favourite moments from the Hungerford clip (or scroll all the way down for the full video).

Confirmed, Ice baths are cold! But we get a sneak peek at the Crusader’s tactics board, if only Steve King had had this kind of access last season. Watch from here.

You’ve scored a decent goal off the post from outside the box against a team who will go on and get promoted. We get it, you’re going to do a knee-slide celebration. However, Callum would advise against it! Watch from here.
