Rochdale AFC fan attends exclusive season launch of EFL on Quest

Date published: 01 August 2019

Rochdale AFC fan Mark Wilbraham travelled to Charlton’s home ground at The Valley on Wednesday (31 July) 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.

A supporter for 37 years, Mark is the editor of the Rochdale AFC match day programme, The Voice of Spotland which has won numerous awards under his stewardship.

Mark says his favourite Dale memory is when Steve 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 3 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.
