Channel 4’s Transworld Sport were in Scotland filming The Cannons as we trained in February. We are delighted this filming made the show that aired today at 7am today.
It is world’s longest running weekly international television sports programme and has been in continuous production every week since 5 May 1987.
Today, it is shown over 50 countries with a household reach of nearly 200 million. For over 25 years, they have endeavoured to bring not only the top names and events, but also the off-beat and esoteric stories from the world of sport.
They covered both our V2 squads and the V5 Senior and Youth squad training as well as taking some action footage at The Helix and The Falkirk Wheel. There were interviews with our two world champions Scott McMichael and Meghan Plummer as well as Head coach Gordon Archibald. Falkirk Cannons are the first UK club to get international TV coverage.
