Forfar 4 East Fife 5

Recommended Posts

It was East Fife 4 - Forfar 5. [Y]

Gordon''s legion of followers included comedian Eric Morecambe -

on whose early-career radio show Gordon had been an announcer.

In a 2012 interview, Gordon said that Morecambe always

greeted him with a famous tongue-twister scoreline involving Scottish

sides East Fife and Forfar - one which never happened, yet became

closely associated with the BBC''s voice of the classified football


"Eric never called me James," Gordon recalled in 2012.

"Whenever I saw him over a 20-year period, he would say ''East Fife 4

Forfar 5''. I''ve got a tape of that."
