Another appearance on ITV's EFL show as I report from Middlesbrough
28 January 2023
Tonight I made another on-air appearance on ITV's EFL football highlights programme, reporting from Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium.
Featuring the club's involvement with the EFL Trust's Fit Fans scheme, I interviewed a number of those close to the project, as well as Middlesbrough defender Dael Fry, who had popped by to lend his support.
The EFL (English Football League) says the free programme is designed for adults who are looking to "lose weight and lead a more active life." Educating on both the importance of physical exercise and nutrition, the programme is now reaching in its fourth year in Middlesbrough.
It was a surreal experience filming at a stadium I have visited many times as a fan. This scheme perfectly encapsulates the strong sense of community in the area and it was a pleasure to bring the spotlight onto an area often poorly represented in the media.
