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!

Preview: Sheffield United vs Tranmere Rovers

Tomorrow will see only my second visit to Sheffield United's, Bramall Lane. My first visit was back in 2007, when the Blades were still in the Premier League and managed to gain a point after a 1-1 draw with Everton. I must say that I have been looking forward to this game for a number of weeks now, due to the fact that it will be the first League 1 game that I have been to. 

Sheffield United, who currently sit in third, will take on top of the table Tranmere Rovers. However, if results go United's way they could instead find themselves top by the end of Saturday. The Blades are currently unbeaten at home and this gives me hope that they will go on to beat Tranmere tomorrow. 

I will be uploading some pictures from the game tomorrow and a match report to go along side them.
