Test-Match-Tom's Dream Work Experience

Over the Summer Holidays, Thomas in Year 10 completed his dream work placement writing articles for the Warwickshire Cricket Board website.

Tom's dream job is to be a Sports Journalist, which is what inspired him to start his own podcast with two of his former classmates, Seb and James. In The Box Box Podcast Tom, Seb and James share their insights on Formula 1, rating cars and discussing behind-the-scenes-news. 

During his work placement, Tom wrote three articles for the Warwickshire Cricket Board website and social media under the alias "Test Match Tom". For his third and final article, he was invited to Edgbaston Cricket Club. Tom said, 'I spent the day in the media box, alongside the Warwickshire County Cricket Club journalist and former cricket correspondent for the Birmingham Mail, Brian Halford. He showed me his tips, and we wrote our match reports in tandem.'  

Tom felt very privileged to have this experience, and we look forward reading more of his sports features in the future!
