Extra Time For Local Football

Extra Time For Local Football

There will be extra time for local football clubs this season as Yorkshire Coast Radio expands its local football coverage.

For the last two years a partnership between the radio station and Scarborough Athletic has seen Boro fans enjoy commentary on home and away matches on Yorkshire Coast Radio Extra.

Now a new partnership with Whitby Town will see the launch of commentaries for Whitby Town matches and it’s hoped a similar service for Bridlington Town will be added in the coming weeks.

The Whitby Town service will launch on Saturday July 14th with coverage of the clubs pre-season friendly at Billingham, the Scarborough Athletic service will cover the home friendly against Spennymoor Town.

The club’s own media teams will provide the commentaries for the Yorkshire Coast Radio platform.

Yorkshire Coast Radio’s content manager, Matthew Pells, said.

“This is a fantastic new service for local football fans, the Scarborough commentaries have been enormously popular and the broadcasts have really become a community radio station for the club and its supporters.

The media team at Whitby Town have developed their own commentary service over the last few years and we are really pleased that we are able to help them build on the hard work they have put in to take the service forward.

We are working with Bridlington Town to hopefully deliver a similar service for Bridlington fans later in the summer.

These are real partnership projects, it’s brilliant that we are able to provide a platform for passionate local fans to create a community radio service for their club”

The Yorkshire Coast Radio Extra service is available via the stations website and smartphone app. There will be a number of streams available offering local football fans a choice of matches to listen to.

The Extra service has also been enhanced to provide a rolling service of news headlines and in-depth interviews when the football services are not on-air.
