I have a 2:1 sports journalism degree from the University of Central Lancashire and have a wealth of experience to accompany this.
Now I work as a freelance sports journalist and have had work published in several areas, including regular match reports for The Football League Paper, Preston North End\'s official website, Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Chronicle Newspapers.
In the summer of 2009 I travelled to Guadalajara, Mexico to work in sports journalism for six weeks. I had writing published in newspapers and websites all over the country as well as helping to cover news from Mexican Premier League football team UAG Tecos. I have also spent time on the sports desk at Chronicle Newspapers, Chester, working in the media department of Yorkshire County Cricket Club and two weeks at the Worksop Guardian as well as compiling Preston North End U18s match reports for pne.com.
