My Portfolio

A full record of all my experience and published work, updated throughout my course...

July 2021 - current                                                                                        Planet Sport

With the placement at The Cricketer only having lasted a week, I continued to seek out opportunities to build my network and gain further experience. Having been put in touch with the Head of Publishing at Planet Sport, a newly-formed website devoted to in depth pieces around a variety of sports, I initially spent one day a week writing articles for the website on a work experience basis, with the hope of paid shifts in the future.


I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far, and I have built up excellent working relationships with the editorial staff. I was delighted to recently accept an opportunity to increase my involvement, and I now spend two days a week writing for the website, on a paid freelance basis.


This is further exposure for my writing, and it has allowed me to continue to gain further experience of writing copy for publication. Although I am given a pre-determined title for my pieces each week, what I write within them is very much up to me, so, much like at The Cricketer, I have once again been able to do my own research, and write freely in my own personal style.

I undertook a week-long digital placement with The Cricketer, writing content for the magazine's website. I produced varied content, ranging from simple news stories to more in-depth thematic pieces.

This was a short, but unique and very useful, insight into reporting outside of a particular club environment, where there was more opportunity to write about a much wider variety of cricketing topics.

March 2021 - current                                                                              Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club


While at Trent Bridge, I have covered numerous cricket matches involving the Nottinghamshire first team. I have written daily match reports for some of the games for publication on the club's website, as well as working the club's official social media output, communicating matchday events in real time to in excess of 103 ,000 followers on Facebook, 92,000 on Twitter, and 73,000 on Instagram.


I have gained further experience of video editing, as I have clipped highlights for use on social media. In addition, I have completed further interviews with several players and the Head Coach, and written various different news articles, again all for the club website.

The highlights of my time at Trent Bridge so far were when I have been considered trustworthy and hardworking enough to be given the responsibility to cover games by myself. I have done this on four occasions thus far, and during which my responsibilities have been to update all three social media channels, interview a player or coach after the game, and write both a match report and a post-match reaction piece.

I was also delighted to be able to attend two days of the England v India Test Match at Trent Bridge in August. During these two days, I continued to undertake my regular role of updating Nottinghamshire's social media channels and writing a match report, but with the key caveat of spending time around a major international matchday and experiencing what goes into putting on such events from a media and marketing perspective.

December 2020 - January 2021, May - June 2021                                    Barnsley Football Club

As a member of the media team at Oakwell, I covered matches involving Barnsley's first team and under-23 side, and for each I wrote a match report for publication on the club website. I also covered several pre-match press conferences involving the manager and some first-team players, and wrote two of these up for the website.

I primarily covered games over the Christmas period of the 2020/21 season, but I retain an excellent working relationship with the club, and have since returned periodically to cover games, including the first leg of the Championship play-off semi-final in May 2021.

I will also be writing articles for the club's matchday programme, Grove Street, throughout the 2021/22 season.
