I was lucky enough to do work experience on the sports desk at the Independent On Sunday this past week, and I was really pleased that I managed to get a couple of pieces into the actual paper. It’s my first experience of being published in a proper newspaper, so I’m buzzing a little bit at the moment.
I wrote a little biography/profile of David Lloyd the former England coach and current commentator. Then I wrote a small paragraph about finances concerning the big play-off final between Blackpool and Cardiff, and finally I wrote a team of the week, containing footballers who have come back to play for their country after originally retiring.
One of the articles can be read at the bottom of this article.
Hopefully this is the first of many appearances in legit newspapers and magazines.
