FOOTBALL WRITERS are used to working to deadlines. However many words may be needed for the match report, whatever the deadline...even if the WiFi goes down or the lap-top waves its ignominious magic wand and makes the copy disappear into the ether...words will be filed on time. Somehow.
New Chairman and Executive SecretaryThe FWA is pleased to announce that Andy Dunn is the new Chairman of the Association and Paul McCarthy has become Executive Secretary.
Andy takes over from Steve Bates, who served four years as Chairman with distinction. Paul Hetherington stands down as executive secretary after two years' sterling service following the passing of Ken Montgomery.
The FWA Interview: Paul McCarthyBy CHRISTOPHER DAVIES

“The time flew by,” he said. “It was brilliant, especially during the football season. I miss that buzz. I guess it’s like a footballer missing the craic of the dressing-room, the excitement of working with a team of people you like and respect.”
