Matt Ryder, Andy Steel and Tom Brownlee head up our Radio Lonsdale football commentary team to broadcast  ALL Barrow AFC home matches, with post match interviews with the Barrow AFC manager wherever possible.

We use a Tieline 4G codec provided by the National Lottery Big Fund for which we are very grateful as we are to the Barrow AFC board for allowing to bring this valuable service to our listeners and use of internet connections and data for home games coming from the club.

Times are flexible to suit match timings and wherever possible will include post match live interviews. This show will occasionally replace our normal Tuesday evening schedules when Barrow AFC are at home!

Our live football commentaries  begin  Saturdays 2:45pm and Tuesdays at 7:30pm

In addition to broadcasts on Channel 1 at beside and Channel 5 throughout the hospital, you can now listen live via the “Listen LiveLive” button on the header of our website or by downloading and listening throught TUNEIn radio.
