Breakfast Show presenter Ali Brownlee is looking forward to many more stints on the terraces after commentating on his 1500th Boro game last season.

He said: “It is terrific news that we will continue to cover every Boro game on BBC Tees, and hopefully we will be able to provide commentary on a Boro promotion back into the Premier League in the near future!

“Following Boro is a true labour of love for our commentary team and we try to reflect in our commentaries the passion that all Boro fans feel for their football club.”

The station’s co-commentator is former Boro player Craig Hignett and touchline reporter Mark Drury completes the matchday team.

BBC Tees acting station editor Dan Thorpe said: “We are delighted to confirm that BBC Tees will be the home of Middlesbrough commentary for the next three years. We know it’s a service highly valued by many of our listeners.”
