David Stowell


The year that David joined MUTV was also the start of the season that saw the return of the Premier League Trophy to Old Trafford. And since then, both have been made to feel very welcome.

Before 2006, Stowell previously enjoyed impressive spells at both the BBC and ITV. Firstly working alongside Hammond, May and Clarkson on Top Gear; then as a presenter, reporter and commentator for ITV news. He also did his bit working for Sports Relief.

Football has never been too far away from David, and after having trials at Cardiff City he finally found his feet. Firstly playing in Northern Spain and then a little closer to home for Barry Town in Wales. It was this passion for the game that eventually drew him to United. And since joining, David has done nothing but feed the Red fever.

From pre-season tests in South Africa and Asia, to Champions League success in Moscow, David’s commentated on a wide variety of first team games for MUTV. But he doesn’t stop there. His travels also take him on the road with the Reserves and the Academy team, so he’s always got one eye on what’s around the corner.
