Three Valleys Radio staff are all sports mad and as such will be pushing to have an up to date local sports coverage on the station.
Saturdays will see the station broadcast “LIVE” from Huish Park Stadium the home of Yeovil Town Football Club as part of our being appointed “Broadcast Partners” to the club.
In addition to these broadcasts we will feature match preview and review programmes together with programmes with players designed to allow the supporters to get to know their team players and their life styles.
In addition, our Sports Zone programmes on Saturdays will feature all the local teams from the Yeovil & District League, The Perry Street League, Devon League and any other leagues operating in our Focus area.
We will feature interviews with local amateur teams players and management as without grass roots football the game would collapse.
Cricket will also feature heavily in our sport content with Somerset and Devon 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, Harry Fry, Anthony Honeyball and Jack Barber will be regular contributors.
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.
So all in all we hope to be able to provide the best quality local sports coverage available locally. Make sure you tune in.
