One of the core elements of Hamdon Media.The first website I looked after was for Deerswood Youth FC back in 2007 when they needed someone to log results and match reports. I then moved on to have sole responsibility for written content on Yeovil Town Football Club's website for three seasons; after that, I now look after six websites including two of my own.
The first article published would have been in the official Yeovil Town Football Club matchday programme back around 2008. For the next eleven years, I wrote more than three hundred articles on football, and YTFC in general, plus interviewed more than twenty famous people with a connection to the beautiful game.
Book wise, in 2009 I co-wrote a book called "Birth of the Giant Killers" that was produced to mark the 60th anniversary of the Yeovil v Sunderland FA Cup upset in 1949. In 2013, my first "solo" book was published - "10" was the story of Yeovil Town's first decade in the Football League and all 500 limited edition copies were reserved before it was even printed! A further 200 copies have since been sold in perfect bound style.
In the summer of 2020, I began researching for my next book, provisionally called "Team Of My Life" which will be a collection of biographies from celebrity football fans. COVID meant that the research has temporarily stopped but will soon restart again.
For three summers, my career took a diversion into non-football writing as I worked on the official Wessex Truck Show programme. My knowledge of trucks and truckers is wider than it was before and I've interviewed some fascinating characters who live in that world.
In September 2017, I started work for Opta Sports as an in-ground analyst. Opta provide data for Football DataCo, part of the Stats Perform Group. I was taken on for Yeovil Town Ladies games but have also travelled to do more than twenty other teams, my primary sides being Championship side Bristol City and their Women's team.
