Following on from last week's interview with Welfare Officer, we're moving onto our Media Officer this week (who may or may not have also come up with the questions himself) as James Gill is in the hotseat.
Tell us about yourself?
I was born and raised in Stockport, growing up not far from where County Ladies play their home games. I eventually moved to the other side of the town and now live a five minute walk from Edgeley Park Stadium. At 19, I'm comfortably the youngest committee member, which has both it's benefits and it's drawbacks, obviously.
What do you do at SCLFC?
I'm our media officer so, first and foremost, I'm in charge of running our social media accounts, which was just the Twitter page when I joined the club. Outside of SCLFC, I'm a freelance photographer covering games in the EFL, FA Cup and the National League so its only appropriate that I use those skills with County. I photograph, film and write reports on all first-team matches, home and away. It essentially takes up my whole Sunday, particularly when we're travelling to somewhere far away (Bishop Auckland springs to mind).
I'm also our resident Slush Puppie enthusiast, buying one every time I'm at Stockport Sports Village. If you ever see me at a game, I'm most likely enjoying one of those refreshing strawberry-flavoured, half-frozen treats.
How long you have been doing it?
I've been with the club since the start of Pre-Season, mid July to be exact!
How did you get involved?
I've been with Stockport County FC (the men's team) for five years and have been photographing at the club (as a freelancer, but sometimes covering for the official photographer) and it was through the official photographer that I found the vacancy with the SCLFC.
Before being media officer for the club, I was previously Press Officer for the Cheshire Football League.
Tips for people in similar roles at other clubs?
At the end of the day, you've just got to work around what suits your team best. In the women's game, photos and videos are definitely the way forward. The game is growing and there's never been a better time to help out!
There are clubs across the country and they'd all benefit from having the right level of media coverage.
