LIVE Rugby League on Radio Lonsdale!

The show only broadcasts when Barrow Raiders Rugby League play their home games.  Radio Lonsdale will feature all rugby matches from the JF Hornby Stadium (Craven Park), including the pre-season friendlies, Challenge Cup and, hopefully later in the season, the Super 8’s!  We will also feature a few away games including Whitehaven and Newcastle Thunder.

Pete Chesher is your commentator and will feature alongside a number of match summarisers, including ex professional and amateur, local players.  Tune in on Channel 1 for all the news, views and full live match commentary – right to your bedside in FGH!

If rugby league is your game, then “SportZone – Rugby League is for you!  Full match commentary and no switching to other games or sports, followed by live interviews with the Raiders Coach and players.  Raiders’ home games now kick off at 3:00pm.

After each game we’ll name the Radio Lonsdale Man of the Match, which will lead up to a Radio Lonsdale “Player of the Year” award at the end of the season.
