Former matchday programme editor at my hometown club, Newcastle United, and a lifelong fan. Fully qualified journalist and experienced freelance writer with a passion for European football, particularly England and Spain. Have interviewed some of the biggest names in the game and work has appeared both locally and nationally in print, online and on air.
Attended my first Newcastle game in 1980, and my heroes include Sir Bobby Robson, Peter Beardsley, Alan Shearer and Kevin Keegan - all of whom I've been lucky enough to interview and work alongside over the years.
