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!

Chesterfield FC Work Experience - Day One

On Monday 24th February, I started my one week work experience placement at Chesterfield FC. At the start of the day I was introduced to members of the media staff and was then given a tour of the ground and the Community Sports Trust at the club. I then started working on a number of pieces for the match day programme and wrote up a match report on the weekend's academy match after interviewing coach Mark Smith. My report was then later published to the club website and can be viewed here: 

Any feedback is appreciated and can be left in the comments box below. Make sure to follow me on Twitter for more updates on my work throughout the next week: @TobyWildgoose
