Radio Bristol presenter Geoff Twentyman

Geof Twentyman

Geoff Twentyman has never lost his Liverpudlian accent, as you'll hear when he takes to the airwaves every Saturday afternoon.


If you ask "The Legend" what his job is, these days the answer is of course "top notch radio presenter and sports journalist".

But a few years back, the answer would have been quite different.

Geoff's professional football career began at Preston North End where he made 110 appearances between 1983 and 1986.

He's best known round these parts as a Bristol Rovers star, making 320 appearances between 1986 and 1993.

The highlight of his time at Rovers (apart from the pies) was playing at Wembley in the final of the Leyland DAF Trophy and winning a championship medal in 1990.

The 90s saw Geoff make the move into media.

After a course at Bristol Polytechnic (now University of the West of England) he joined Radio Bristol as a sports journalist, rising to sports editor in 1993.

But the lure of the pitch was too great and qualified football coach Geoff returned to the beautiful game - and Bristol Rovers - as an assistant manager.

Radio beckoned again in 1997 and The Legend has been here ever since, bringing his inimitable brand of scouse humour and sporting knowledge to the station.

He's also branched out into the written word with a weekly column in Saturday sports paper The Green 'Un.
