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!

Millers sign striker Wes Thomas from AFC Bournemouth

Rotherham United have completed the signing of striker Wes Thomas on an initial deal until the end of the season.

The forward, who joined up with his new team mates for training this morning, signed for an undisclosed fee, subject to FA confirmation.

Thomas has scored no goals in 12 appearances for AFC Bournemouth this season, and has previously worked under Millers' boss Steve Evans at Crawley Town.

During the 2011/12 season, the former Cheltenham frontman scored 18 goals in 41 appearances, proving his goal scoring prowess.

Evans commented on the capture, saying "Wes is an excellent signing and I thank our Chairman for his continued support."

The club will have an option to extend the striker's contract at the end of the season.
