Default BBC Radio 5 Live drops classified football results

A sporting tradition going back decades is no more - BBC Radio 5 Live will stop broadcasting the classified football results at 5pm on Saturdays.

"With the addition of the 5.30pm live Premier League match to our coverage, Sports Report has been condensed into a shorter programme," the BBC said.

The BBC said it would still offer goal updates throughout the day on air.

The results have been read out by Charlotte Green since she took over from James Alexander Gordon in 2013.

"We would like to thank everyone who has read the classified football results on 5 Live over the years," the BBC's statement continued.

The corporation added that fans could also keep across the results on the BBC Sport website and Final Score on BBC One.

he classified football results listed all football results across the English and Scottish leagues.

Alexander Gordon, who died at the age of 78 in 2014, read the results for more than 40 years.

Sports Report first ran on the BBC Light Programme before moving to Network 3 and later BBC Two before it found its permanent home on 5 Live in 1994.

Green was a BBC Radio 4 news announcer before taking up the baton from Alexander Gordon in 2013.

The results were preceded by its now famous theme tune.

Not all fans and commentators were happy with the news.

Chief football writer at The Times, Henry Winter, tweeted that "the decision to scrap the service shows a lack of understanding of the fans".

He also suggested that instead of dropping the classified results due to time constraints, 5 Live could drop one of their post-match manager interviews instead.

Up the Clarets, a Burnley fan group, posted that it was "tradition" to tune into the results at 5pm on a Saturday.

Others, including sports reporter Charles Dagnall, pointed out that they listened in the car on the way back from the match, where you couldn't check your mobile phone.

Tbh most people either watch Jeff or go on the BBC Sport website to get the Football results nowadays, it's a shame for the people losing their jobs on this Radio Show, but it was always bound to happen unfortunately for them.

Nearly everything is getting connected to the Internet nowadays.
