OUR LATEST UPDATE
When Three Valleys Radio launched last June, full of ideas and enthusiasm, operating a community sport radio station seemed like a great idea.
We found our flow and we’re proud of the content we were providing you all before the coronavirus outbreak brought a stop to sport globally in March.
Running the station during global pandemic has been difficult, to say the least, especially with all the 3VR volunteers being sport fanatics, with the added pressure of working from home for many.
We have brought our listeners as many new interviews from the sporting world for you and we were delighted to welcome ITV’s Racing Host Oli Bell to the station.
The Premier League will be restarting on June 17th so we will be able to bring our listeners some of our views on the new world of top flight football.
Quite where the local football scene is heading is at this stage is hard to predict, but rest assured, we will be itching to get back to live coverage of Yeovil Town games as soon as the Glovers are back in action.
If you’re a local sport team or organization. Please get in touch at email@example.com.
Three Valleys Radio staff are all sports mad and as such this is your local community sports station.
We are now featuring nearly 3 hours of sports features every weeknight from 19.00 with a repeat the next morning from 6.15am for those early risers!
Saturdays will also see the station broadcast Live from Huish Park, the home of Yeovil Town Football Club with comprehensive match day coverage and almost all away matches as well.
In addition to these broadcasts we will feature match preview and review programmes together with features with players to allow the supporters to get to know the team and their lifestyles.
In addition, our Extra Time programme on a Monday evening and our Devon Football Show and Toolstation Reviews will feature all the local teams from the Yeovil & District League, The Perry Street League, Devon League, The Toolstation Western League and any other leagues operating in the three valleys.
We will also feature interviews with local amateur teams players and management in these local league programmes as without grassroots football the game would collapse.
Add to that our regular podcasts the Gloverscast and Football……Bloody Hell! covering Yeovil Town and the rest of the football world and a weekly roundup of Yeovil Town Women Football Club with Sheridan Robins and we feel we have got the football scene pretty much covered – unless you have a story for us to tell!
Cricket will also feature heavily in our sport content with Somerset and Dorset County sides covered along with the West of England Cricket League in which several of our local teams play their cricket.
Somerset County Cricket Club’s Head Coach Jason Kerr will be a regular contributor as will players and captains from the local sides.
Equally Devon and Dorset Minor Counties sides will also be covered with regular interviews with their respective captains.
The West Country is well known for its horse racing connections and our focus area contains several successful training establishments.
We are pleased to announce we will be scheduling a regular Friday evening show focusing on horse racing.
During the winter National Hunt Season, friends of the station Colin Tizzard, David Pipe and Philip Hobbs and Bob Buckler will be regular contributors and we are delighted to have leading National Hunt Jockey Tom O’Brien on the show every week with news of his riding week.
On the flat Cullompton trainer Rod Millman will have a weekly spot as will well know tipster David Wilson covering all the big races of the flat season.
All in all we hope to cover our focus area with without doubt the most thorough up to date local sports coverage.
Make sure you tune in.
