I would like to thank Bathgate Thistle Community Football Club for giving me the chance to work as the Club’s media officer over the past five months.

It is a role I have thoroughly enjoyed and one which has provided me with some extremely valuable experience.

After graduating from university last summer with a degree in Multimedia Journalism, I was keen to build on the experiences I had already gained within the fields of sports reporting and the platform the Club provided me with to put my skills to the test in a working environment was greatly appreciated and also highly rewarding.

I would advise any journalism students or recent media or journalism graduates with an interest in football to apply for the position as it bolstered my CV and ultimately helped me to secure a full-time job within the media.

Finally, I would like to wish all the Club’s teams the very best of luck for the remainder of the season and I will be sure to keep an eye on the Juniors’ results as they strive for promotion to the Super League.
