I am a recent graduate of the University of Nottingham, with a first class history degree. I set up this website in order to share my views on the world of sport (predominantly cricket and football). Whether or not England are involved, I really struggle to drag myself away from the TV during a test match, or during any cricket game for that matter. I’m also a huge fan of West Bromwich Albion, and enjoy watching football as a whole.
I come from Northamptonshire and play for Stony Stratford cricket club in the Northamptonshire Cricket League (NCL).My love for the game has been apparent to just about everyone who knows me, since my early secondary school days. I represented Northants at Under 15, 16 and 17 level, and also made a few appearances for their academy side.
I’ve written pieces for the sports section of the university’s magazine, ‘Impact’, for Trent Bridge’s website, and was responsible for reporting on all of Stony Stratford’s matches during 2015. Last year, I spent two weeks at “The Cricketer” magazine’s London office, and was lucky enough to have several pieces published in their July issue, and on their website. Most of these articles can all be found by selecting from the drop down menu at the top of the page, and are appropriately labelled.
The right hand side of the page is a fairly self-explanatory blog, which I will do my best to keep updated.My portfolio is accessible along the drop down menu at the top of the page.
I also have Twitter, so please follow me on there (my handle being alexjstockton) and expect plenty of cricket-related retweets and updates if you do.
I hope you enjoy reading my work!
