Hi Chris, thanks for speaking to Freelance Football Opportunities today. Can you tell us about yourself, your journey and how you ended up as the editor of The Set Pieces?

Some prospective football writers may find themselves in a similar position as you did. Was taking a different route a help or a hindrance?

That sounds busy, so what does a ‘normal’ week look like for you?

What is the most enjoyable part of your role?

When did you know you wanted to work in football?

Who are your favourite writers at the moment and what do you think it is that makes them so brilliant?

What general advice would you give to those individuals looking to pursue a career in football writing/journalism? What are the key skills required?

As the editor of The Set Pieces, I’m sure you’ve received countless pitches in your time. In your opinion, what makes a good pitch? Any key advice you can share with freelancers at the start of their journey looking to pitch their stories/ideas to editors?

As you know, we often feature opportunities from The Set Pieces in our newsletter. You are currently looking for a freelance social media person. Can you tell us more about this opportunity for any of our readers it may interest?

And finally Chris, where can people find you on social media?
