For the past few seasons we have endeavoured to film highlights from as many games as possible, Home and Away allowing our supporters to watch highlights from most of the games via your Smart TV (click on Youtube), PC, Laptop or mobile device all in HD quality. Highlights are hosted on our Youtube Channel.
WCFCTV was set up to cover the final season at St Georges Lane, so we had as much film as possible of the club for years to come and we covered 45 games during the 2012/13 Season including the final ever league game at The Lane v Chester .
During our first year at Aggborough, the 2013/14 season, we filmed 50 out of 51 games and for the 2014/15 season we filmed all 53 games, the only club in The Conference North & South to film all of their games.
The fact that we film games has led to a considerable amount of new exposure for the club culminating in Sean Geddes winning Runner-Up in a Sky Sports Goal of The Year award for 2014 (pictured above) and latterly the same goal was awarded Non League Goal of The Season for 2014/15. We didn't make it onto the shortlist for FIFA Puskas Award for 2015 but the very fact that we were in with a chance was great for the Club!
The Sean Geddes' "Rabona" goal in our FA Trophy game at Home to Barrow, went viral and has been seen millions of times across various media around the World. It is a goal we think should be seen by as many people as possible so we have allowed it to be copied. We knew we were onto something when it received 5,000 views over night. By 3pm on Sunday afternoon after the game, it had been seen by 50,000 times on our channel and within 24 hours 100,000. As of 11/02/15 it has received 199,000 views with our edited clip having been seen nearly 12,000 times. After City player (at the time) Michael Taylor added the clip to his Vine Account the goal received over 10 million loops!
The Geddes Rabona was shared with TV Companies around the World as well as Sky Sports (as mentioned above) and even on Match of The Day! If you haven't yet seen it, you can watch it here on WCFCTV

At the end of the 2014/15 Season we had 510 subscribers. (All you need to do is register on Youtube to get a free account).
We will also continue to bring interviews which we display on the front page of the website
As of 28th September 2014 we have had 90,444 views and bearing in mind the way Youtube counts statistics, the actual number is probably ten times that amount. We have also had 29,249 views via our website for interviews, community events, Youth Football and our goal of the month competition making a total number of views 119,693!
Following our terrific win at Coventry in the FA Cup, we had 10,000 individual views in just over one week! The Match Highlights of the game became our most watched video in just 7 days! As of 23rd November 2014, our total number of Youtube views is 108,619
So in under a month when we announced 108,619 on 23/11/14 we have risen to 328,995 as of 19/12/14.
May 1st 2015 Update - One Million Minutes - We have now past over one million minutes of watched highlights since setting up our channel! A great achievement in anyones book!!
We ended the 2014/15 Season on 385,000 views.
September 2015 Update
Once again Worcester City have made World sporting headlines!
This time it was a team member of the opposition - Ricky Drury - who was centre stage. With City leading 0-1 in the fourth minute of added time at Holbeach United in the FA Cup, Drury went up and scored an overhead kick from the edge of the box. Within an hour of going on line the goal had been seen 12,000 times! By the 1pm Sunday it reached 100,000 views and by Monday afternoon, less then 48 hours later - 500,000 views!
On Monday 28th September we reached 1 Million Views on The WCFCTV Channel - (which doesn't take into account all of the copied videos)
The Holbeach goal is featured on the websites of:
The Daily Mirror
The Sport Bible
and a host of others from around the World.
Great publicity not just for the Club but for WCFCTV Sponsors: Ron Sims, Xerox (UK) Ltd and Arrange My Group and of course the club main sponsor M Pinches Transport
We still have room for more sponsors for WCFCTV and are still looking for a Main Sponsor. Please contact us if you are interested
12th November 2015 Update
In the period 26th September to 12th November we had 1,000,511 individual views on our youtube channel. During that period Sean Geddes was announced as Hereford & Worcester Sports Personality of The Year and The Best of Sean Geddes was shown at the awards Presentation Night held at The Sixways Stadium, Worcester.
Another City Film
Our Club Film about the run in the FA Cup 2014/15- "The Steps of a Giantkiller" was shown at The Worcestershire Film Festival to a full house at The Worcester Arts Workshop on the eve of our FA Cup 1st Round game at Sheffield United.
WCFCTV has been viewed in 221 Countries and Dependencies around the World, from Aruba to Armenia, from Laos to Lesotho and from Vanuatu to Vietnam.
Most of our footage is watched almost equally between mobile phones and pc's with both being on 600,000 views followed by tablets on 160,000 views. We're not taking off on smart TV's yet with just 14,000 views but with updated technology we're expecting that to increase.
By the end of the 2015/16 season our Youtube Channel had over 1.5Million views making it one of the most watched Non League Channels, all at no cost to our supporters.
