For over 25 years one voice has been synonymous with Northampton Town.

Tim Oglethorpe has been part of BBC Radio Northampton's commentary team since he was asked to cover the 1997 play-off semi final 1st leg match at Cardiff City.

Since then he has gone on to describe some of the biggest moments in Cobblers history.

Tim speaks to Charles and Danny about his time behind the microphone and why he couldn't commentate on any other team.
