Experience

I have been reporting from live sport since 2004 gaining 3 seasons of reporting before taking up full commentary.

Since then I have covered approximately 400 live football games, some of which have been away from the UK with pre-season tours and single trips covered for the BBC (see above picture from Rajamangala National Stadium Bangkok, a testing broadcast with Thai player names in sweltering 40 degree temperatures and a COMREX broadcast running a telephone line into the referees room, but I made it happen)

In 2010 I was part of a team that won the BBC Gillard Gold award for a documentary. Pinning down Martin O’Neil l was a tricky piece of the jigsaw which I managed to negotiate.

 

 

 

I recently climbed Ben Nevis, the biggest mountain in the UK, to raise money for a local hospice. The work the nurses do was aired on some of our mainstream programmes as well as our endeavours as a group to raise some much needed cash. As well as knowing the funds were going to a great cause the 4000ft climb was made easier with these views.

In 2012 I’m training for the London Marathon to raise money for the ‘Foxes Foundation’

I have plenty of other broadcast experience including FA Cup final reporting, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and football league play-offs.

Not settling for the ‘celebrity’ interviews like Sir Geoff Hurst, Frank Bruno, Jose Mourinho and Roberto Mancini. I’ve pitted myself against the likes of Martin Allen, Bernie Ecclestone and other very challenging interviewees.

I enjoy covering other sports and have experience with live Boxing, Hockey, Cricket, Athletics to name but a few as well as the 400+ live football matches I’ve reported on.
