Tim Gudgin, voice of Saturday tea-time football results, dies aged 87

Tim Gudgin, the long-time voice of BBC television’s Saturday tea-time football results, has died aged 87. Gudgin, who retired a week before his 82nd birthday in 2011 following the corporation’s decision to relocate its sports division to Salford, had a career in broadcasting spanning more than six decades. He joined Grandstand in 1976, reading out the horse racing and rugby results until 1995, after which he became the second person - after Len Martin - to do the same for the football results. Known for his distinctive rising and falling intonation, Gudgin began his broadcasting career while on National Service in Germany in 1949 at the age of 20. He managed to beat 200 others to secure one of four newsreading jobs in Hamburg, before returning home and joining the BBC, where he also worked for Radio 2 and Radio 4. Upon retiring, Gudgin said: “It is a triple reason why I am going: age; distance - I am down on the south coast and the team is going to be up in Salford; and my granddaughter’s wedding in Australia, which I have to be there for.” Sam Wallace's Power Rankings 42:04 Gudgin’s family said he died peacefully at his home on Wednesday.
