Commentary team changes at BBC Radio Devon

Alan Richardson, Drew Savage and Charlie Price will commentate on Plymouth Argyle matches for BBC Radio Devon following Gordon Sparks’ decision to take a break.

The early breakfast show host will continue his daily show, and announcing the sport on breakfast with Simon Bates, but for now is happy about the change. He says: “I must admit it will be something of a relief to have a break from commentary duties which involves plenty of preparation and watching games with a notepad, stopwatch and a producer in my ear. Fortunately, my wishes have been considered in my favour.”

Mark Grinnell, Editor of BBC Radio Devon said: “Gordon and Plymouth Argyle are umbilically connected, so I realise fans will miss him this year but we’ve got a great new commentary team lined up while Gordon takes a break and enjoys the matches from the stands. Gordon is still a massive part of the Radio Devon family and continues on air in his regular shows”

Gordon continues: “I will continue to present my weekday Early Show and also sport on The Breakfast Show with Simon Bates which I enjoy immensely. It will be a refreshing change to watch Plymouth Argyle matches purely as a fan, if for no other reason that I won’t have to observe a League rule of not being able to wear club colours from now on.”

The commentary for Plymouth Argyle matches for the 2016/2017 season on BBC Radio Devon will mainly be covered by Alan Richardson, Drew Savage and Charlie Price.
