Rochdale Hornets rugby league Commentary

Rochdale Hornets rugby league Commentary

Roch Valley Radio is the official broadcast partner of Rochdale Hornets for the 2019 rugby league championship.

Rochdale Hornets in the rugby league Championship

What does this mean? Well, Roch Valley will be broadcasting every home game from the Crown Oil arena live.

We will also be broadcasting some of their away matches, including the Summer Bash game against Swinton Lions.

Do YOU want to be right there with us?

We are looking for fans of the sport to become involved. We need commentators to join us on this new adventure.

Do you know your Full Back from your Hooker? a forward pass from a knock on? Do you want to have the chance to ask Carl Forster his thoughts on the game post-match?

Then click on the link below and join us. Don’t worry about experience, our team are here to help and guide you, and let’s face it, who knows more about the club and rugby league than the fans?

The Hornets begin the season at home on the 3rd February with the visit of Dewsbury Rams who make the 25 mile trip over the Pennines looking to better their 8th place finish of 2018.

Obviously, the best way to follow the Hornets is to actually be there, but the next best thing will be to tune into Roch Valley Radio either via the website or our newly updated app.

Roch Valley Radio is also looking for volunteers in other areas. Please, if you think you can help us in any way, click on the link and join us.

Roch Valley Radio’s first Christmas Fair Success!

Roch Valley Radio’s first Christmas Fair Success!
On Sunday 9th December the team at Roch Valley Radio, which serves the local hospitals and community in Rochdale and Bury, hosted their very first Festive Christmas Fair to raise essential funds to keep the station on-air and to develop the services it provides.
With over 25 stalls from local traders and other local community organisations made the day a great success where the station raised over £600.00. The money raised will go towards the on-going fees required to keep the station on-air such as music licenses and royalties.
David Murphy, the Chairman, added “Volunteers work at the station 365 days a year providing a lifeline to patients and the surrounding community, it was a fantastic day and great to see so many faces coming to the Christmas Fair to support the work that we do. We hope it was an enjoyable event for all those that attended and the funds raised will ensure that we can continue this service.”
The radio channel is loved by hospital patients, staff and visitors and can be accessed by patients for FREE at their bedside, an alternative for paying for the TV service while staying in the hospital. Patients and family can ring the station on 0161 764 9200 to request songs and dedications.
Further information about the radio station and the services it provides, or if you have an interest or would like to delve into a volunteering role can be found on the website at
