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!

York City announce Nigel Worthington as new manager

York City have today announced that former Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington will become the club's next manager after sacking Gary Mills just two days ago.

He arrives with the club sat in 18th place in the League Two table and just four points above the relegation zone.

The 51-year-old has plenty of managerial experience in football, most notably with Norwich City who he led to the Premier League during his six years in charge. Worthington most recently managed his home nation  Northern Ireland before leaving the hotspot in October 2011, after a poor Euro 2012 Qualifying campaign.

Worthington's first managerial position was as player-manager with Blackpool in 1997 however, he soon stepped down from the position after a poor run of form in late 1999. His new position at York City will be his first managerial placement since 2011 when he stepped down from the Northern Ireland job.

The club statement claimed that Worthington's appointment was "based on his Football League experience, strong coaching ability and extensive knowledge of players throughout the leagues".

The club then stated: "He is also an excellent coach and we believe he's the right person to take us forward."

Worthington will be in charge by the time York travel to London to face AFC Wimbledon this Saturday.
