Alan Green
Alan Green
Each season Green watches up to 120 matches
Born in Belfast in 1952, Alan attended the Methodist College in his home town before achieving an honours degree in modern history from Queen's University.

After leaving university he worked in local newspapers until he moved to the BBC in 1975, as a news trainee.

It was in news that Alan began his career, presenting current affairs on both radio and television in Northern Ireland before joining BBC Radio's sport department as a senior sports broadcaster.

He now estimates that he sees between 100 and 120 matches a season, and has won the admiration of fans for his honest assessments of games and players' performances.

Best known for his uncompromising football commentary, he also commentates on rowing, tennis and golf - and was a member of the Sony Award winning Five Live team which covered the Ryder Cup.

Alan is married with two children, lives in Cheshire and lists 'time off' as a current hobby.
