I joined an organisation last month called Women in Journalism Scotland, and attended one of their annual events in Glasgow.

I was a fish out of water on my lonesome, and didn’t know what to expect. Thankfully found my voice (after a wee Coca Cola or two) and met some extraordinary people from all walks of life. Up til that point I didn’t consider myself a writer but it appears the match reporting has made me one. Very grateful to .net and Brian 🙏 for that opportunity.

The majority of women at the event were journalism students at Glasgow university, studying all manner of careers, including sport.

So, a couple of days ago, I sent a message to WIJS about an idea I had. They thought it was great, as did Brian, and today Craig Brown, our media officer, confirmed his acceptance, too.

In the near future. at some home matches, I will have the opportunity to have Glasgow University sport journalism students sit alongside me in the press box, at East End Park, to gain an insight into match reporting, and media coverage. I thought it would help their course work, and their career prospects in the media, and wanted to impart my skills, also learn from them about their courses and prospects, whilst giving them a first hand match-day experience.

It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and very happy I’ve been able to achieve this.

🖤🤍❤️

Following on from my post yesterday ~ the opportunity to learn / enjoy / or you’re simply curious as to what my match day experience involves ~ is open to anyone.

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you’d like to join me (and other areas of the club’s media team, including ParsTV).

It’s interesting, fun, a great way to use transferable skills, and indulge your love of football.

We’ve had an enquiry re this initiative and will hopefully have a university student alongside me for an updates day, next year.
