Many see football as the 90 minutes on the pitch, the players who steal the show and make the headlines. But behind the scenes, there are thousands of people who all contribute in different ways to make this one of the greatest sports in the world.
In our second series of short films released each week, we’ll be experiencing a Day In The Life of five roles within football, from clubs to the press, to find out what it means to feel unstoppable in their career.
For the fourth episode in the series we meet Brighton Journalist Andy Naylor!
Andy Naylor has been covering Brighton & Hove Albion for 30 years, a period that has seen the team promoted from the lower leagues of English football, to playing in the Premier League for the first time this season. Admitting he wasn’t going to make it as a player, Andy knew he wanted to be in some way involved in the sport. He saw his ability to write as an opportunity to pursue a career as a football journalist - the perfect avenue he needed to realise his passion, and stay close to the team he loves.
In this interview, 90min learns what is needed to become a journalist, how the role has evolved over time, and what it means to feel unstoppable as a journalist covering football each week.
