Sky Sports soccer pundits Jeff Stelling and Chris Kamara have been travelling Ireland, putting their commentating skills to the test in the GAA world.
The pair, most famous for their roles on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday every weekend during the Premier League season, have been challenged by AIB to partake in a documentary dubbed ‘Jeff and Kammy’s Road To Croker’.
The show will follow the duo around the country as they familiarise themselves with GAA culture and the environment in which our native games are played. We will see Stelling and Kamara become educated on all matters GAA right from the bottom at the tiniest rural clubs across Ireland all the way to the biggest day in the GAA calendar, All-Ireland final day in Croke Park.
With many thrills and spills along the way, as is to be expected with the quick wit of Stelling, who plays the passionate presenter on Soccer Saturday, alongside the hilarious ‘Kammy’, who is famed for his “Unbelievable Jeff” catchphrase and raw enthusiasm for his match reports from around the various football stadiums in England, the series looks set to be a cracker.
From the first trailer, we can see that Jeff and Kammy will be learning from the best, none other than the legendary GAA commentator that is Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh.
As we can see from the clip below, the pair didn’t even know how to spell GAA upon their arrival!
Can the two soccer pundits learn enough about GAA to commentate on the sport’s biggest spectacle, an All-Ireland final in front of 80,000 fans come September?
