Hi, my name is Matt Friday. I am a Modern Languages graduate from Cardiff University and I am an aspiring sports journalist.
I am currently studying the NCTJ Diploma in Journalism as a distance course, while I gain work experience elsewhere (with my local newspaper the Falmouth Packet and with online blog Just Football, among other future roles).
A requirement of the course is to complete a number of self-assessment tasks, including writing previews, match reports, round-ups and features. These will be the articles that will be featured on this blog, so in a way it acts as an online folder for my work, but also as a portfolio of my work to date.
You can also find a link to my work with Just Football here, and you can see previous match reports for the Falmouth Packet on the ‘Other Work’ tab.
I also run a separate blog, entitled Life in the Lyndhurst, where I write about the greatest love of my life, Plymouth Argyle, which you can view by clicking this link here.
If you’d like to contact me, then you can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on Twitter at @MattFri94.
