Since the start of February I have been working as an intern in the media department of Burnley Football Club. My role involves working in the office during the week and writing football related articles, mainly stories for the website and match day programme. This includes interviewing managers, players, executives – some of which to camera. I also work on all home match days and travel to some of the away games where I write live match reports and post-match reaction pieces for the website.
Walking off the plane at Glasgow airport I was wrapped in a big winter coat. Despite it being August, I expected Scotland to be grey clouds with cold and wet weather. But to my surprise the sun was out and it was very hot. My accommodation was a very traditional Victorian house bed and breakfast with only a five minute walk into the town centre, so the location was perfect.
After moving down to London on Sunday, I left my temporary home on Monday morning for the FA Headquarters at Wembley Stadium, my new place of work. After the formalities and the mandatory signing of various bits of paperwork, first on the agenda was a comprehensive tour of Wembley itself.
