Team Northumbria

Working with the University was never a thing that appealed to me in the past but after I started in September of 2017 I can say it has been one of the my most helpful roles in developing my skills as a journalist.

I work alongside well respected North East journalist and Team Northunbria editor Simon Rushworth, who has been pivotal in making me the writer I am today.

I report on the university’s national league fixtures across a variety of sports including: basketball, volleyball, rugby, rowing and of course football. These articles are then published in Wednesday’s edition of The Chronicle.
