    Hi there, i'm Jimi and an 18 year old from South Wales. All my life I've had a passion for sport, especially football and motorsport and a love for the topic of English.

    In September I will (hopefully) be studying for my English degree at university. A career in sports journalism is what I am aiming for, as I can combine all my hobbies together and financially support me and my racing. I'm hoping to take up a small article job online for some small cash.

    Maybe it's rare to see a young 'wannabe' male around here, but I was hoping I could get opinions on professionals or those who know what they're talking about, and suggest ways I can improve, or if I should just drop the whole idea. :p

    My first attempt at an article I hoped was written professionally enough.

    Many thanks, Jimi :)

    EDIT - Very sorry if this is the wrong place for this thread.

    You ought to find a forum in the UK to ask advice. The vast majority of the users on here are Americans (with a few Canadians), and I'd bet it's safe to say most don't have a lot of knowledge on the state of sports media in Wales. I certainly don't.
