BBC's Late Kick Off returns

3 March 2014

Late Kick Off, the show that gets right to the heart of local football, returns to BBC One for a fifth series tonight, Monday 3rd March, at 11.20pm.

More than a highlights programme, Late Kick Off has seven regional editions across England and reflects, celebrates and examines the fortunes of local Football League sides both on and off the pitch.

The seven regional shows and their hosts are:

North West: Tony Livesey
North East & Cumbria: Steve Bower
Yorkshire & Lincolnshire: Guy Mowbray
Midlands: Manish Bhasin
East: James Burridge
London & South East: Jacqui Oatley
South, South West & West: Tony Husband

The programme focuses on the teams, the players, the fans and the communities of which the club are a part. As well as all the goals from the previous weekend's local Football League action, each programme gets to grips with the issues fans want to talk about.

David Holdsworth, Controller of BBC English Regions, said: "Late Kick Off means that football fans across the UK get exclusive access to their local clubs with journalism, comment and analysis from the regions' footballing experts and personalities."
