BBC Radio Derby rams it home
BBC Radio Derby has signed famed Derby County striker Roger Davies as the new summariser for its coverage of Rams matches during the forthcoming 2009/10 football season.
Roger will sit alongside commentator Colin Bloomfield and veteran presenter Colin Gibson for all of the Rams games this season, beginning with the friendly against Stoke on 1 August.
During his distinguished playing career Roger started 144 games for Derby County after joining the club in 1971, collecting a Championship medal under Dave Mackay in 1975.
Roger said: "When you think Derby County, you think BBC Radio Derby."
He added: "The Championship is so unpredictable and Nigel Clough is bringing in hungry players. Just as it was with his father, players with passion will die for Nigel when they cross that white line."
Simon Cornes, Managing Editor, Radio Derby, said: "Roger's pedigree as a Derby County medal winner will bring real value to our coverage.
