DUMBARTON Football Stadium will be the centre of attraction on BBC Alba tomorrow night with the satellite channel broadcasting the 1st leg of the first division play-off final live!
No fewer than NINE cameras will capture the action at the Rock ensuring that armchair fans will get a full flavour of the action from what is sure to be a cracking match.
Commentators Derek MacKay and Alex O’Henley will arguably have the best view in the ‘house’ as they will be positioned behind the dugouts on the main gantry scaffold which is built on the outside of the perimeter fence.
Sons Chief Executive Gilbert Lawrie has been a busy man today, but is excited at the prospect of the club being shown on live TV.
He said : “Tomorrow’s match will the first time we’ve had a Sons game broadcast live from the stadium since we moved in and whilst it’s been very busy in the last few days, everyone is enjoying the atmosphere the situation has created.
“It’s been all systems go and our staff alongside everyone who volunteers at the club have been terrific.
“Fingers crossed for a good game.”
Presenter Calum Macauley, who fronted De a-nis?, gets the ball rolling at 7.40pm on the Gaelic channel (Sky Channel 168, Freeview Channel 8, Freesat Channel 110, Virgin Media Channel 188, Smallworld Cable Channel 170) with match kick-off at 7.45pm.
