Viewers spot Falkirk TV commentator on rival broadcaster during Scotland's 0-0 draw with England
Eagle-eyed Falkirk fans spotted a familiar face during Scotland’s Euro 2020 draw with England on Friday.
Commentator, and post-match interviewer, on Falkirk FC’s in-house television streaming service FalkirkTV, Lewis Connolly, was filmed during the pre-match anthems belting out Flower of Scotland before kick-off at Wembley.
The Tartan Army footsoldier then watched as Steve Clarke’s side claimed a commendable draw with the Auld Enemy to keep their Group D qualification hopes alive going into Tuesday night’s make-or-break crunch match with Croatia at Hampden.
And Connolly’s claim to fame didn’t end with his early evening cameo on STV either – viewers in England later compared the Falkirk die-hard to former England centre-back David May, with the former Manchester United and Blackburn defender retweeting a screenshot of his ‘look-a-like’ accompanied by some laughing emojis.
Looks are not the only element the pair apparently share with May also a presenter on his own club’s TV channel and regularly hosts Thursday night programming on MUTV.
Scotland drew the match 0-0.
