Hello, and welcome to my blog!

My name is Matt Friday, and I am an aspiring sports journalist, and am currently studying for the NCTJ Diploma in Journalism.

I decided to set up this blog as a way of compiling a portfolio of my work. The articles that you can see on this blog are all posts that I have written as a way of practising the craft, while many of the earlier articles are self-assessment tasks that I have completed while studying my NCTJ course.

The articles come under various types: News stories, Previews, Match reports, Round-ups, and Features. You can access all of a certain type by clicking on the corresponding links at the top of the page.

I have also uploaded some of my writing that has been published elsewhere, which can be read via the ‘Other Work’ tab.

If you wish to contact me, then you can find my contact details by clicking on the ‘About’ tab.
