Sports writing

About this project

I have ten years’ experience as a journalist, including five as sports editor of a regional newspaper – the Somerset County Gazette. I was responsible for writing and editing sports stories, features and match reports. This included finding new angles for stories, researching articles and carrying out interviews. This experience has allowed me to develop into a highly proficient sports writer, able to find and produce appealing articles that give readers an extra insight.

It’s an in-depth interview with Russell Musker – the manager of Taunton Town Football Club – who was standing down after ten years in charge of the team.
