Green is the first female announcer to read the classified football scores, but in the build-up to her debut the respected broadcaster has tried to brush the issue aside. Green stated in the buildup that her gender was not relevant – all that mattered was that she carried out her task professionally. She appeared to achieve that goal comfortably in an effortless first outing.
Green's debut, heard by millions on Radio 5 Live and the World Service, went without a hitch on a day of remarkable results – from Manchester United 1 West Bromwich Albion 2 to Rangers 8 Stenhousemuir 0. The radio veteran cruised through the classified scores with plenty of poise and little fuss, adding only "and finally" ahead of the last result – The New Saints 6, Carmarthen Town 0. Aside from a Tottenham win, things could hardly have gone more smoothly.This was the wonderful Charlotte - it was never going to be anything less than perfect.
