Introduction to the blog...

Hi, my name's Toby Wildgoose. I'm a 20 year old who's obsessed by sport, so much so, that I am looking to become a sports journalist/media officer in later life.

I've set up this blog not only so that I can improve and refine my writing skills, but also to provide a platform for potential employers to view my work.

I have already developed a small portfolio of my work, with my experience in the industry including: written match reports for junior football teams, published work at numerous EFL clubs in a variety of formats, and work experience placements at Chesterfield FC and Rotherham United Community Sports Trust - to see my full portfolio click here:

I hope to post as often as possible on this blog about anything that is sport related. Please find the time to read any of my posts.

Any comments or suggestions on how I can improve the blog would be greatly appreciated, and I would also be happy to receive any other suggestions for work experience. Please comment on here, email me (, or even tweet me (@TobyWildgoose). Cheers!

Coventry City to move to Hinckley's Greene King Stadium?

Talks have commenced between Coventry City and Hinckley United with regard to a possible ground share between the two footballing sides. This is due to the possibility of the Sky Blues having to leave their Ricoh Arena stadium, as they believe that their current rent for the ground is too high compared to other teams in the league.

The Ricoh Arena's current capacity is 32,609 whereas Hinckley's Greene King Stadium can only hold 4,329 fans. This could prove problematic for Coventry fans as the team's average attendance this season is currently just over 10,000.

The Sky Blues have until Boxing Day to pay the owners of the Ricoh Arena (Arena Coventry Limited) £1.1 million or face a winding-up petition.
