Scotland Football deal for Eklipse Radio
Scotland’s Sports Talk and Rock station Eklipse Sports Radio will be broadcasting commentaries and covering the Scottish Junior football season in depth for the coming season.
Each Saturday from September 13th a live commentary will be broadcast from one of the games in junior football as part of the Eklipse Sports Saturday show. Eklipse’s commentary team includes Alex Horsburgh, previously with Setanta Sports, and junior football guru John Redmond.
Station Director Spencer Pryor told RadiOToday: “The Juniors are brilliant! In many respects they are more exciting than SPFL games and teams both in their support and their fanaticism. Eklipse Sports Radio are very happy to be able to bring live commentaries to the whole of Central Scotland on a top game every Saturday and also to cover in depth the Super Leagues, both East and West. Well known teams such as Boness Utd, Linlithgow Rose, Newtongrange Star, Pollock, and Glenafton Athletic amongst others will be covered in depth. These teams are bigger in many respects in terms of attendences and support than the vast majority of the lower divisions of the SPFL. We’ll be out and about covering games from Ayr to Dunbar and up into Fife every Saturday.”
Tom Johnston Association Secretary of the SJFA commented: “The Scottish Junior FA are delighted to be involved with Eklipse Sports Radio in this exciting initiative which will provide additional media exposure for our game. We look forward to working with the professional team Eklipse have brought together – importantly many of them with an in-depth knowledge of the Junior game.”
Eklipse Sports Radio is a Scottish owned independent commercial radio station broadcasting across Central Scotland on digital DAB radio from its network of six transmitters covering 2.7 million people.
