Tim Gudgin: Former voice of BBC football results dies aged 87

The former voice of the Saturday afternoon football results Tim Gudgin has died at the age of 87:

I have nostalgic memories of him, the teleprinter and high tea as my family checked their football coupons on Saturday teatimes.

A good age, but sad nevertheless.

Unfortunately, no...

Quote:
In a sad day for football supporters, James Alexander Gordon, voice of the classified results, is to retire - without ever officially reading the scoreline with which he was indelibly associated, writes Jon Kelly.

Any football fan could close their eyes and imagine hearing that honeyed, resonant Scots brogue declare the final score.

"East Fife... (downward inflection) 4. Forfar... (upward lilt) 5."

For most of James Alexander Gordon's 40-year career delivering the BBC's classified check, it was the tally you enunciated if you wanted to impersonate his distinctive, much-loved delivery.
In fact, Gordon never announced this fabled scoreline. Now he has retired aged 77 from BBC Radio 5 live after surgery to remove his larynx.

The two clubs, currently both in Scottish football's third tier, have never finished a game thus, although they have come close.

In January 1964 an encounter between them finished tantalisingly near, but the wrong way round - Forfar 5 East Fife 4.

And in October 2011 fans across the country raised their hopes during a clash which finished, disappointingly, East Fife 4 Forfar 3.

Re: Tim Gudgin: Former voice of BBC football results dies aged 87

Oh yes the teleprinter results. I always loved the internation so that you could almost know the rest of the result before he said it.

RIP Tim.

It used to be a game you could easily win, deciding what the second score of a match was just by the tone of his voice.
