I am a 22-year-old Multimedia Journalism graduate from Bournemouth University currently working as an Audio Visual Assistant at Southampton FC.

I started The Youth Radar in 2011 after identifying a massive gap in the market for youth football on the Internet. The website has gone from strength to strength and in the past three years has been nominated for a Guardian Student Media Award, recognized by the Guardian, Eurosport and BBC Sport and has become commercially viable through advertising revenues.

During my time at university I have completed various work placements at the likes of ITV Meridian, The Guardian, Four Four Two, FHM and Sky Sports’ Soccer AM. I have also worked for AFC Bournemouth’s media team for the past three years, churning out video content for their YouTube and Player services.

Sadly, time constraints of full-time work mean that the website can’t be updated as much as it once was. However, follow¬†The Youth Radar’s Twitter feed for all the latest youth football news, results and opinion.
