Sports Commentary


Roch Valley Radio is proud that we provide LIVE match commentary for our local clubs;

  • Rochdale Hornets
  • Bury Football Club
  • Ramsbottom United

The football commentary usually starts at 2.45pm and 7.00pm for Saturday and midweek games respectively but from time to time abnormal kick-off times result in a few changes. The commentary is driven and produced in the studio while some of our team are in the press box at Gigg Lane.

For our Rochdale Hornets Commentary, this is broadcast from 2 pm on a Sunday afternoon on match days, and you can listen on ‘Roch Valley Radio’ via the website and online.

Due to licensing commitments, commentary from Bury Football Club is only available to patients of our local hospitals, and this is not broadcast on the internet. However, you can still follow our commentary updates via our website and social media.

If you know someone in the hospital who will most definitely be listening to our match commentary why don’t you surprise them by requesting a song especially for the avid fan before the match or at half time? Just click Music Request right here on this app or if you’re a patient you can dial *800, a free number, from your Hospedia bedside phone handset.

If you’re interested in media, radio, broadcasting and football and would like to be involved with Roch Valley Radio in various ways which include match commentary and more we’d love to hear from you, please visit our volunteering section.
