Final Score

  • 2006
  • Sport


"Final Score" is broadcast on Saturday afternoons and provides a thorough set of results from the main football league matches played that day. The show, normally presented by Gabby Logan, usually begins before all the final whistles have blown, so the pundits in the studio and the commentators at the grounds can provide live audio coverage of the ends of many matches. This allows for "goal flashes" which appear every time a goal is scored. These are shown on a vidiprinter at the bottom of the screen that announce goals, bookings and final whistles. The show also includes interviews with managers, players and studio pundits. Regular pundits include Garth Crooks, Lee Dixon, Steve Claridge, Martin Keown, Matt Holland, John Hartson, Gary Pallister, Les Ferdinand and Mark Bright. As well as the Premier League, the round-up covers matches from all the main English divisions, the Scottish Premier League and all Division leagues, and the Welsh Premier League and Irish League. Once all the games have concluded, the day's scores are read out by Tim Gudgin, who has been doing the job since 1995. Viewers using the Red Button can see an extended version of the programme. "Final Score" was presented by Ray Stubbs prior to Logan, but she took over when he moved to ESPN in 2009.
