BBC Radio Suffolk is to use a panel of match summarisers to cover Ipswich Town games during the forthcoming season.

Bryan Hamilton, Kevin Beattie, Alex Mathie, Trevor Whymark and John Wark are among the former players to join Brenner Woolley for expert analysis.

Other features will include a Saturday show from 1200 BST and regular columns on the BBC Sport 606 website.

BBC Radio Suffolk managing editor Peter Cook said: "We are delighted to add these Town legends to our team."

Beattie has regularly been voted the best Ipswich Town player of all time in polls of supporters.

The defender made 296 appearances for Ipswich and won nine caps for England.

Beattie will be at every home game and appear as a weekly guest each Saturday lunchtime.

Former midfielder Wark was a vital part of the teams which won both the FA Cup and Uefa Cup for Ipswich in the 1970s and 80s.

A playing career spanning more than 20 years also included 29 Scotland caps and spells at Liverpool and Middlesbrough.

Wark will become a regular contributor to BBC Radio Suffolk's Matchday Preview show every Friday evening.

Former Northern Ireland manager Hamilton and ex-Ipswich strikers Mathie and Whymark will form part of the station's panel of away match summarisers.
