Here’s my piece for Forge Press, Sheffield University’s student paper, on the revelations surrounding Michael Carrick’s mental health back in October.
I’ve made numerous contributions to boxing site, Southpaw Jab. Here are a few of my best recent articles on the site.
Callum Beardow was an English Champion as an amateur boxer and I interviewed him about signing with Dave Coldwell and planning his professional debut.
I’m pleased with this interview because I was able to do my own photography. That was a valuable experience.
In this interview I chatted to Lenroy Thomas, a former sparring partner of Anthony Joshua. He discussed those sessions and his own ambitions after claiming the Commonwealth title.
During my final year at Edinburgh University, I undertook a role with the University television channel as their Sports Producer. Here is a selection of videos we released during my tenure.
This video isn’t perfect but I learnt a lot from producing it and it was popular on Facebook at the time of release. Last minute pull-outs from crew members meant I directed, filmed, interviewed and edited with no assistance. That was really useful in helping me get to grips with editing software and every stage of the production process.

Here’s a piece I wrote for Debut. They’re a site all about careers with their own app for graduates to find jobs. This piece is a discussion of army careers for grads.
Here’s a selection of pieces I wrote for Hellraiser Boxing, the website of prominent London boxing promoter, Micky Helliet.
I’ve written a variety of pieces for the UK’s biggest boxing publication, Boxing News. I’ve covered shows for their print magazine and written online too. Here is a selection of articles about Scottish boxing written for Boxing News online.
No one was backing Tony Bellew before his first fight with David Haye but I was confident that the bookmakers had got it wrong. I wrote this piece on Bellew’s chances and am proud, in retrospect, that I went against the tide of Haye support to write the piece.
Sure, I’ve got plenty of predictions wrong too, like any sports writer. (I recently thought Frankie Gavin might have half a chance for the European title and that was, admittedly, a terrible call!) This is a well reasoned, well-researched prediction that I’m proud of though.
