The FWA are sorry to announce that we have had to postpone the FWA Live North East Special in Durham, which was planned for this Thursday November 21, owing to circumstances beyond our control.

Have you ever worked in a profession other than football?
If you count marking up the newspapers for delivery as a 14-year-old in Leigh-on-Sea and then doing shifts before and after school behind the counter in the same local newsagents, I suppose that's my only other profession. I left school at 16 and joining the Evening Echo, based in Basildon as a junior sports reporter and from there it has been journalism all the way.
