Voice of Final Score didn’t know the rules of football

GOLDEN-voiced broadcaster Tim Gudgin, who retires on Saturday from reading the BBC’s Final Score football results to the nation, has admitted he does not even understand the rules of the game.
Gudgin, best known for his distinctive rising and falling intonation, is hanging up his microphone after more than 60 years of broadcasting.
He said: “My main interests used to be rugby, cricket, golf and tennis.
“At school I didn’t have the chance to play football.
“I don’t even understand all the rules – although I just about understand the offside rule.”
