Brighton & Hove Albion fan Kevin Clarke has won talkSPORT’s The People's Pundit competition.

TalkSPORT has scoured the country since January to find a football fan ready to make the step-up from the pub or sofa to the world's biggest sports radio station, and Clarke will now fulfill a lifelong ambition by broadcasting live on talkSPORT on the last day of the Barclays Premier League season.

After winning, Clarke said: "It's been an incredible journey from a one minute clip on YouTube to winning the competition and being on air for the last game of the season.

“It feels amazing. If there's one thing this process has taught me it's the important of preparation.

“I shall be swotting up this week on Liverpool and Stoke players and tactics before the weekend but it will all be worth it to be at the game!"


The People's Pundit invited football fans to film and submit their own entries online, via Twitter, or in a touring van which visited Premier League stadiums earlier this year.

Clarke, whose daughter prompted him to enter via YouTube, successfully overcame five finalists after taking part in a Boot Camp at Wembley and a series of rigorous challenges on air on talkSPORT.

Kevin Clarke was finally crowned champion after coming out on top from a combination of public votes, and a panel of judges including Sky Sports' Jeff Stelling, talkSPORT's Ray Parlour and Mark Saggers.
