The Classified Results

Much as I love the game of football I have to admit to being a fair weather supporter.

However one aspect of the game I love more than any other is the ceremony involved in the reading of the classified football results each Saturday afternoon.

So it was sad to hear earlier this year the news that James Alexander Gordon was retiring after more that 40 years in the role, after surgery on his larynx had left his voice without the strength to broadcast. In a world which increasingly succeeds in confusing and alarming in equal measure Gordon’s reassuringly calm and assured reading of the results week in week out were confirmation that whilst some things change some things stay the same. And whilst in this instance things have stayed the same since 1973, events have now conspired to make a change nevertheless.

Thankfully, an inspired piece of decision making from the people in the know saw the wonderful Charlotte Green being named as Gordon’s replacement, and last weekend saw her begin in her new role.
