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!

Kevin MacDonald appointed Swindon Town manager

Kevin MacDonald has been announced as the new manager of League One side Swindon town this evening after Paolo Di Canio left the club just over a week ago. The 52-year-old will replace the tenacious Italian who led the County Ground club to the League Two title last season.

He takes over with the club currently sat in fourth place; three points behind top-of-the-table Doncaster Rovers and will be unveiled as manager tomorrow morning during a press conference.

MacDonald's last job in football was as a coach at Premier League side Aston Villa, where he worked for 17 years before leaving at the end of last season. He had a brief spell in charge at Villa Park, as caretaker boss, when Martin O'Neill left the club just before the start of the 2010/11 season.

MacDonald will meet the players and staff tomorrow morning before watching his new side take on Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.
