SportZone LIVE!

Radio Lonsdale is the ONLY hospital radio station within Cumbria which broadcasts LIVE Vanarama National League Football.

Adam Johnson and the Radio Lonsdale football commentary team provide all the latest scores, news and views from the world of sport, with an emphasis on local fixtures whenever possible, alongside special guests and some great music.

The show includes full LIVE match commentary of ALL Barrow AFC home games and most away matches, with post match interviews with the Barrow and visiting managers wherever possible.

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

Our Match Day Team:

Adam Johnson – Main Commentary; Matt Ryder Match Summary; Andy Steele – Match Summary

Note: Barrow AFC matches are now also streamed on the internet via the “SportZone Live!button at the top of this page.  The streams currently begin 10 minutes prior to Kick Off.

Radio Lonsdale commentaries are used by Barrow AFC for their highlights videos.  Highlights from other matches can be found on their official YouTube website:
