Then Saturday Comes… the half decent football blog

Then Saturday Comes is written by Matthew Reville

mat-face4My name is Matthew Reville, and I am a news journalist for the Peterborough Evening Telegraph.  This blog has absolutely nothing to do with the P.E.T. and is just a casual way to get some writing experience.

I am a die-hard Leicester City fan and have been going to matches since the 1991-92 season, taking in all the highs and lows associated with supporting The Foxes for almost 20 years.

My previous experience includes working for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club’s marketing/PR department, where I worked for six weeks after my graduation from the University of Sheffield in 2007.  During my time there, I contributed to the club’s website and match-day program, as well as helping to organise the club’s 125th anniversary celebrations by creating posters and contacting national media and past players.

As well as my full-time position in Peterborough I have experience working in the Sheffield Star, Cambridge Evening News and Leicester Mercury newspapers.  I have also regularly contributed to magazines in Los Angeles (The Indie Portal) and Leicester (Soar Magazine).   In all these positions I have gained experience with writing original content, press releases and liaising with media on a national level.

Testament to my love of football, I also helped set up the UK’s first inter-university Fantasy Football League, which has received press attention in The Telegraph, thanks largely to our celebrity endorsement from Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock!
