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!

Scunthorpe United Programme Work

At the start of the 2013-14 season, I was offered the job of writing the away day preview in the Scunthorpe United programme. This section is for fans who are looking to know a little more about the grounds they'll be visiting and how to get there. I began writing for the programme back in August and have continued to do so throughout the season.

Here are some examples of my work:

My first piece: an away day preview for Bristol Rovers (Mansfield Town programme)

 Away day preview for York City (Cheltenham Town programme) 

Away day preview for Chesterfield FC (Hartlepool United programme)
