Alex Reed profile »

Bromsgrove Advertiser: Photograph of the Author

My name is Alex Read, and I'm currently a student on a NCTJ Journalism course at Warwickshire College. My major interests are football and music, with Southampton FC the team I have supported since being a boy. My favourite band are Arctic Monkeys, though I have an interest in other genres such as Punk and Ska.

Most youngsters are thought to not care about politics and what is happening in the country, but I take an active interest in what the government does and I form my own opinions on the issues that come up. I follow what is happening in the news, especially seeing as I aspire to be a journalist in my future career.

I look forward to writing on this blog, and hope my articles are helpful, interesting and above all entertaining.

FRIENDLIES are often labelled as pointless, boring exercises that turn out to be worthless, pathetic training matches.
