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!

Gary Mills sacked by York City

York City have sacked manager Gary Mills after Saturday's 2-0 home defeat to League Cup finalists Bradford City. The news comes with the Minstermen sat in 18th place and just four points off the relegation zone. York have now failed to pick up a win in any of their last eleven games.

The 51-year-old Mills, led York to victory in last season's Conference Premier play-off final and into the Football League for the first time since 2004. However, the York City board of directors have now taken action in order to secure the Minstermen's league status for next season.

A statement from the club read: "It is with regret that the York City board of directors has terminated the contract of manager Gary Mills with immediate effect."

The statement then continued: "The recent playing form, which has resulted in the team achieving only six points out of a possible 33, has led the board to this extremely difficult decision. The absolute priority is to safeguard the club's Football League status and an improvement in results is essential due to our current league position."

The club are now looking to appoint a new manager within the next week.
