About me

Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog. I’m a 22-year-old student with a passion for non-league football.

I’m currently for a Masters in Public Relations at the University of Sunderland having completed a degree in Sports Journalism , and I’ve been writing about football for almost six years now.

Quite a few of my games will involve Easington Colliery where I’m press officer/programme editor/media man/anything else that needs doing!

Although I’ve now got a driving licence, I generally rely on public transport to get to games.

I’d say I’m a part-time groundhopper. At the time of writing, I’ve seen games at 181 different venues.

Although I don’t groundhop as much as I used to, you’ll always still see me at the annual Scottish groundhop!

Until the start of the 2016-2017 season, I was part of Horden CW. My duties there were very similar to what I do at Easington. Unfortunately, that came to an end when they became Darlington Reserves.

I’ve written for numerous different websites and matchday programmes.

Should I do a write up about your club, feel free to use it.

In the 2015-2016 season, I managed to get to a personal best of 190 games. That was followed by 181 games in 2016-2017, but 2017-2018 wasn’t as big with 141 games. In the 2018-2019 season, I managed to take in 155 games.

I’ve had season tickets at Sunderland and Hartlepool United in the past, but it’s very easy to become disillusioned with the professional game!

  3. I have enjoyed reading about your travels this season, Connor. I am a Hartlepool United season ticket holder myself but you have inspired me to get to more Northern League games next season. Keep up the great work
