Bristol City Twitter Takeover

Bristol City Football Club will be taking over the official Bristol Flyers Twitter account in aid of BUST Bristol during tonight’s game against the Leicester Riders.

 Mark Perrow, the media content manager for the club, has been working hard with Bristol Flyers staff to get his basketball knowledge up to tip-top shape ahead of tonight’s 7.30pm tip-off with the defending league champions.

“I’m looking forward to seeing plenty of goals at the SGS WISE Stadium tonight,” he said.

"The game should be a high-scoring affair – I’m hoping the Flyers can come away with all three points.”

As part of the takeover, Perrow will be providing fans with live updates on the Bristol Flyers Twitter account – sharing his insightful basketball knowledge to fans unable to make it to the SGS WISE Arena.

Perrow has never worked in basketball before, but the Flyers say his knowledge is highly respected.

“Despite being a huge fan of the beautiful game, my methods have been untested in the world of basketball,” he admitted.

“Tonight the players will be stepping onto the hallowed turf under the lights at the SGS WISE Stadium for their first dose of Friday night basketball. The pitch should be in top condition and the groundstaff have been working hard all week.”

Not only will City be taking over the Flyers Twitter account, but also Robins defender and England Under-20 captain Taylor Moore will be in attendance alongside club legend and kitman Scott Murray, who made his first visit to the WISE Arena in last week’s narrow defeat to Sheffield Sharks.

Be sure to follow @BristolFlyers on Twitter for live updates during tonight’s 7.30pm tip-off against Leicester Riders and join in the chat using #BCFCtakeover
