A Mystery Guest and Quality, Entertaining Sports News, Interviews and Chat Assured on Verulam Sport

FIRST BROADCAST : February 9, 2019 3:00 pm

Another action packed Verulam Sport from 3pm-6pm on Saturday 9th February.

The weather took a devastating effect on last weeks local sporting action. The Saints away clash against Hungerford is awaiting a pitch inspection early on Saturday. With St Albans City FC starting the day in 8th place in the Vanarama National League South and travelling to second bottom Hungerford they will be hoping for action and a positive outcome as they chase the playoff spots. The 'Voice of the Saints' Ian Rogers is ready to describe the action if the game is on.

Saracens and England Woman's star Sarah McKenna got over the try line as England Women started their Six Nations campaign with a thumping 51-7 win away at Ireland. She returns to the show to discuss this triumph and preview the England Women's crunch clash against defending Grand Slam Champions France. Meanwhile, in local Rugby the Old Albanians are in a dire run of form with six straight defeats they travel to high flying Taunton Titans with Brian Quin reporting.

With the UK's Strongest Man returning to St Albans in July, we speak with England's Strongest Man Sean Logan who is going to head to head against the reigning UK Strongest Man Pa O'Dwyer in a dead lift challenge on Saturday outside the Alban Arena. Inside the studio a mystery guest who is a local health and fitness guru will be putting Presenter Tony Rice through his paces; worth tuning in for alone! Plus, we catch up with London Colney's unbeaten Super Middleweight boxing prospect Ollie 'Punch Perfect' Pattinson. He returns to the ring at the historic York Hall on February 16th and he tells us about his preparations.

We learn about the weird and wonderful world of Pickleboard with Peter Simmons and hoping to put Everton in a pickle with all the Watford FC news ahead of their clash we have Watford Head of Communications Richard Walker. With no love lost between these teams Jo Kiely is at Vicarage Road providing team news and a full time appraisal in what promises to be a feisty affair.

All this and so much more, Verulam Sport with Tony Rice, Matthew Turvey and Jason McKenna 3-6pm 92.6Fm and online on www.radioverulam.com
