The BBC has FINALLY confirmed Alex Scott will take over as the presenter of Football Focus.

Dan Walker announced last month that he was standing down at the end of the season after 12 years fronting the magazine programme.

Alex, a former Arsenal and England full-back who made more than 200 club appearances during her playing career, earned 140 caps for her country and represented Great Britain at London 2012.

She becomes the show’s first permanent female host in its 47-year history.
