Online petition to reinstate Jackie Fullerton at the BBC
An online petition has been launched calling for Jackie Fullerton to be reinstated by the BBC as a commentator on Northern Ireland's European Championship adventure next summer.
After the Belfast Telegraph revealed the BBC had pulled the plug on the popular Ballymena man, there was a groundswell of opinion calling for the 72-year-old to be allowed to travel to Paris.
Colin Ferguson from Ballyclare launched the 'Bring Back Jackie!' campaign on change.org by saying Fullerton "has been a foundation of BBC NI Football coverage for many years.
"He has now been dropped as we prepare for our first ever Euro Finals. We appeal to BBC NI to reconsider."
