Write For The Site

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Fancy yourself as a match reporter, want to reminisce about Astle and Allen, or have you ever wanted to write your very own regular Baggies’ column?

We are always looking for people to help with the website, it can be on a regular basis or it can be a one-off contribution, light-hearted or serious.

We do have the capability to publish any articles, previews and reports submitted to us onto NewsNow‘s Albion newsfeed, meaning that they would have a potentially large readership. Your grammar does not have to be perfect and any problems with regards to that can be easily overcome.

The site is run purely on a voluntary basis and therefore you must be prepared to work for no monetary gain. However, writing for the site and having articles published can lead to opportunities elsewhere. Over the last few years this website has provided a 'West Brom viewpoint' for amongst others, Manchester City's and Sunderland's official websites, a number of opposition matchday programmes, the BBC, the 'Irish Examiner' newspaper, the Liverpool Echo, Nuts Magazine, 'World Soccer' magazine, and numerous other websites.

Writing for the site may be suitable for someone looking for a career in journalism who wishes to gain experience and exposure of their work or simply someone that enjoys writing and giving their opinions about the Baggies.

We have the following positions available:-

Match Reporter - Someone that attends both home and away games would be preferred although it is not essential - we are happy to accept one-off match reports. The writing style would perhaps be more relaxed, giving more of a fans viewpoint rather than a typical straightforward description of the game.

Match Previewer - Must have a good knowledge of the squad and the Premier League in general, keeping up to date with all the recent games, injuries and suspensions.

Squad Biographer - Someone that can provide in-depth profiles for each member of the playing squad and coaching staff. Ideally the profiles would include information from entire careers and not just from their Albion one. The statistical side of it is not important. In time we would also like to profile as many ex-players as possible and obviously due to the large number involved we are happy for more than one person to be involved with the profiling.

General Articles - We are looking for writers to provide articles and opinions on the latest happenings at the club and also people that can provide historical pieces. It can be a regular contribution or a one-off.

Under-21 & Academy Team Match Reporter / Biographer - Someone that is a regular watcher of games would be preferred and perhaps someone with a good knowledge of the younger players at the club.

We would also welcome any help with the statistical side of the website.

Please get in touch for more details, if you have any ideas, or if you are interested in helping in any way.
