Football League Extra was a Football League highlights show supplied by ITV Sport. It usually aired late on Monday nights. The programme first aired in 1994, and ended after the 2003-2004 season, when it was to be replaced on Sunday mornings with The Championship. The show ran many club-specific features and also featured competitions and archive footage. Throughout the years, there might have been a Friday/Sunday or Monday extra which showed extended highlights of certain games. The show was first presented by Gabriel Clarke - other presenters later included Dave Beckett, Matt Smith and Tom Skippings. Football League Extra disbanded for a time in 2002 after the ITV Digital collapse, but soon returned to ITV during the 2002-2003 season. The shows theme tune was called "Little Britain" by Dreadzone.[1] Other songs included "July" by Ocean Colour Scene and "Whoosh" by Bentley Rhythm Ace.
