Gazette writer Steve Canavan talked to aspiring sports reporters at Blackpool Sixth Form College

Aspiring sports reporters met with The Gazette’s Steve Canavan to learn about a career following a football team.

Steve, who was Blackpool FC writer for 10 years, talked to students at Blackpool Sixth Form College, on Blackpool Old Road, who are doing a sports journalism enrichment option, offering tips and anecdotes of following the team from the lower leagues up to the Premier League.

Steve said: “It’s great to talk to the next generation, pass on a bit of what I’ve learned and hopefully a few of those I spoke to will end up being writers themselves.

“That would be great, as long as they don’t turn out better than me and nick my job.”
