Three Valleys Radio is the only destination for Yeovil’s avid sports fans.
The community sports radio station is run by willing volunteers with a major passion for sport.
We love our football. Our station directors, Adi Hopper and Dave Prior are dedicated Yeovil Town fans which you’ll hear in our unparalleled coverage of the Glovers.
Adi Hopper was Head of Media at Yeovil Town Football Club for 15 years, enjoying all the highs of a FA Trophy Final victory in 2002 and two subsequent Playoff finals at Wembley, and was also involved with the club as project manager and administrator of the YTFC.Digital archive web site. His range of contacts from his time at Huish Park gives Three Valleys Radio the exclusives that you won’t hear anywhere else.
Dave Prior, Three Valleys Radio’s match commentator with a penchant for a pun has struck up a brilliant relationship with ex-Glover and co-commentator Paul Thorpe. The duo provide some of the most entertaining commentary you’ll hear, alongside Thorpey’s insight into life in football.
Ian Perkins has bled Green and White for over twenty years experiencing the overwhelming highs and agonising lows of being a Yeovil Town fan. Ian was majorly involved with the opening of the station and has been an integral part of the station during it’s first two years. Due to work commitments Ian has taken a step back from his “Techi!” duties but still contributes to the station with his Glovercast Podcasts.
It’s not just Yeovil Town and football our sports team hope to be covering. All the local teams from the Yeovil & District Football League, The Perry Street and Devon County Leagues get our attention and we feature the Toolstation Podcast on Three Valleys Radio.
Adi’s other passion is for horse racing which extends to part ownership of six flat horses and his contacts including Cheltenham Gold Cup winning trainer Colin Tizzard, Rod Millman, Jamie Snowden, Tom Ward and leadibng National Hunt Jockey and Cheltenham Festival winner Nick Schofield will feature strongly on the sports shows.
We hope to follow other local sides including Yeovil, Chard, Crewkerne and Ilminster, Axminster and Sidmouth and any other teams from our area (staff permitting).
In the Summer months County and Minor Counties cricket will be featured heavily with regular contributions from Jason Kerr, Head Coach of Somerset County Cricket Club. And that’s not including his connection with local cricket at North Perrott Cricket Club who play their cricket in the West of England League. George Marshall-James will host our regular cricket chat show Let’s Talk Cricket with regular appearances from new Somerset County Cricket Club bowling coach Steve Kirby
Don’t forget there’s loads of great music on the station.
