Rochdale AFC fan and Dale Programme Editor Mark Wilbraham travelled to Charlton Athletic's home ground at The Valley on Wednesday to celebrate the return of free-to-air highlights show EFL on Quest at an exclusive season launch.
Representing Rochdale AFC alongside fans from each of the 72 EFL clubs, Mark joined the show’s host Colin Murray, EFL on Quest pundit Ian Holloway and EFL on Quest ambassadors Chris Powell and Karen Carney, to chat about the season ahead and get a sneak peek inside the EFL’s trophy cabinet.
On show at the event were the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two trophies. Mark took the opportunity to get up close with the Sky Bet League One trophy before it gets locked back away until the end of the season when he hopes Rochdale AFC will be hoisting it up in a victory celebration.
A supporter for 37 years, Mark says his favourite memory is when Steven Davies scored an injury-time equaliser against Spurs in the FA Cup.
EFL on Quest host Colin Murray said, “Football is as much about the fans as it is about what happens out on the pitch, and EFL on Quest is different, I believe, because we acknowledge the fact that every club tells a different story.
“It’s a straight forward programme about football and fans, and it’s two hours long now which is a real step forward.”
EFL on Quest will be available to watch at 9pm each Saturday throughout the season starting on Saturday 3rd August and midweek on matchdays on Freeview channel 12, Freesat channel 167, Sky channel 144 and Virgin channel 217. This season’s on-air pundits will include Ian Holloway, Darren Bent, Dean Ashton, Sue Smith and Michael Brown. Fans can catch up on the show via QuestOD.co.uk. Screwfix is on board as the lead sponsor this year helping to bring you quality free-to-air highlights all season long.
