Summary expansion
A Scottish newspaper once tagged Ian Crocker a "Have Mic Will Travel" commentator when he started covering Scottish football. Hard to argue, Ian admits-but it's been a great trip! Ian's adventures range from FA Cup dreams with hometown club Weymouth and supporting West Ham through thin and thin, to landing a job at Upton Park as a Tannoy announcer. From ushering studio audiences for Del Boy and Rodney, and working behind the scenes at BBC Radio 2, to commentating on soccer here, there and everywhere. From Arbroath to Amsterdam, Derby to Donetsk, Middlesbrough to Macedonia, Newcastle to New York, Southend to South Africa. From Football League to Premier League, Champions League to European Championships and World Cups. From 0-0 to a 6-6, and even an 8-4. From great players, characters, managers, matches, and goals, to hopefully shouting all the names out correctly! The life of a soccer fan-come-commentator
