About me

I’m an experienced freelance football writer and broadcaster, specialising in English and French football.

My written work has been published by websites/publications including Bleacher Report, The Blizzard, The Guardian, ESPN FC and Eurosport and I’ve made appearances on BT Sport, CNN, BBC News 24, France 24, BBC Radio 5 Live, the BBC World Service, BBC London, talkSPORT, The Guardian Football Weekly podcast and The Totally Football Show.

Between 2012 and 2017 I worked as the London Sports Correspondent for the Agence France-Presse (AFP) international news agency, reporting on the Premier League and English domestic cup competitions, the England national team and UEFA Champions League matches involving English clubs. Prior to my stint in London, I spent four years in Paris covering French football.

In addition to the major European club competitions, I’ve also reported on the 2014 World Cup, the 2012 and 2016 European Championships, the 2011 Asian Cup and the 2013 Confederations Cup.

In a previous guise, this website was a blog called Football Further, which focused on French football and tactical trends in the European game. It was a founding member of the Guardian Sport Network (articles can be found here).
