BT Sport adds to holiday season programme
BT Sport has announced four more exclusively live matches from the Skrill Conference Premier, including big matches on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Leaders Cambridge United are at home to Braintree Town, kicking off at noon on Boxing Day. The Us, who have made a superb start to the season, especially at the R Costings Abbey Stadium, will be looking to build on their lead at the top of the table with a home tie against Braintree, who are currently in the play-off places under manager and ex-West Ham star Alan Devonshire.
The game is the first part of a feast of football on BT Sport on Boxing Day. At 3pm, there is exclusively live Barclays Premier League action with West Ham v Arsenal, followed by Manchester City v Liverpool at 5.30pm.
On New Year’s Day at noon, BT Sport has exclusively live coverage from Kenilworth Road as Luton play host to Edgar Davids’ Barnet. Player coach and former Dutch international Davids will be hoping for no repeat of his antics against Wrexham in his last BT Sport live match, when he was sent off.
Again, BT Sport follows up that action from the top half of the Skrill Conference Premier League with play from the Barclays Premier League. Southampton v Chelsea will follow at 3pm, with the huge fixture Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur at 5.30pm.
BT Sport will be showing two more exclusively live games before the turn of the year. Grimsby Town host high-flying Kidderminster Harriers on Thursday, December 19, kick off 7.45pm. Then, on December 28, BT Sport concentrates on the other end of the table as fellow strugglers Hereford United and eco-club Forest Green Rovers battle to pull well clear of the relegation zone in a game at Edgar Street.
