Need to hire a sports reporter?
My name’s Mel and I’m a freelance journalist who writes action-packed sports reports.
As a sports journalist I’ve been ringside as south east reporter for BoxRec News, written features for Eastside Boxing and been court-side covering basketball matches for Southampton Trailblazers.
Back in the day, I also penned opinion pieces for football fanzines!

- Advanced SEO
- Social media marketing
- Content strategy
- Online copywriting techniques
Altogether, it means that I’m able to amplify the reach of content. Which I think is important…
Because in today’s marketplace, it’s not enough to simply write great sports features. They need to be found. By combining my background in sports journalism with content marketing nous; I can ensure that stories are seen, read and subscribed to by the maximum number of people.
So, as well as traditional news values and the ability to file scintillating copy; I possess a range of digital marketing skills which are ‘business critical’.
For examples of my work, including sports reports, features and SEO case studies:
A sports reporter for the digital age
Training as a journalist at Southampton Solent University wasn’t enough to satiate my appetite for news. I edited the student newspaper and headed up the news department for its radio station, Sin Radio – now Radio Sonar.

What is skill without passion?
As a sports reporter, you can be assured that I won’t be satisfied writing one beautifully crafted article, and following it up with a few average ones. I have an innate passion for sport and digging deep into the story.
While my interest in sport started at a very young age watching Frank Bruno pummel overmatched opponents, and Peter Ndlovu running at terrified defences; I’m now drawn to a wide variety of sports.
In my spare time, I play tennis and football, and compete in local running events: if my creaking body allows!
