Tied Up with Notts by Colin Slater

Ever since BBC Radio Nottingham was launched in 1968 Colin Slater has been the Voice of Notts County. On radio alone he has covered over 2,000 matches and, before then, was a newspaper journalist, writing about the Magpies in the Nottingham daily and football papers. It is that experience which has given him a first-hand and unique insight in to the affairs of the world's oldest Football League club for over 50 years. He was recognised in 2001 for service to radio and the community in Nottinghamshire with the award of the MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours; in 2009 with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Sony Radio Academy; in 2010 by being granted the Freedom of the Borough of Broxtowe; and in 2011 with a Certificate of Achievement by the Nottinghamshire Football Association. This very personal and revealing record of Notts County from 1959 to 2011, as entertaining, informative and incisive as his radio commentaries, coincides with the club's 150th anniversary year which is celebrated in 2012.

About the Author

Colin Slater MBE is well-known as BBC Radio Nottingham's long-serving Notts County correspondent, a position he has held since the station went on air in 1968. He has commentated on more than 2,200 Notts matches. The early part of his career was spent in weekly newspaper journalism in his native Bradford and then, from 1959, in Nottingham where he worked first on the Evening News and its sister paper the Football News as the Notts County correspondent. He continued in that capacity after the merger of the papers with the Evening Post and Football Post in 1963. He was awarded the MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours in 2001 for service to radio and to the community in Nottinghamshire and other honours include a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Sony Radio Academy in 2009.
