Podcast: ‘Live’ with the winners at the 2018 Football Blogging Awards

Last night was the 6th edition of the Football Blogging Awards, and the first in its new life with our colleagues at Snack Media taking on the running of it.

The great and the good of the football world came out in force to help recognise the great work that is being day every day by bloggers, vloggers and podcasters around the world. Those people who work tirelessly to enable fellow fans to debate and get better access to their favourite teams.

From Spencer FC and Copa90 to Matchday with Max and Amy Christophers, there were so many amazing people up for the 21 awards. And with SkySports streaming it live on social media it meant that the pace to the evening was a quick one.

I had the honour of presenting the Digital Sport Best Football Podcast awards, though did find myself on stage with the wrong envelope for the first one… not an ideal start 🙂

But the night was a huge success and enjoyed by all. During it I got to catch up with some of the winners to discuss their journey to that night and how they were feeling about gaining recognition for their efforts.

From someone of the stature of Robbie Lyle of ArsenalFanTV who picked up the Snack Media Best Overall Football Content Creator award. To someone starting out on their journey such as Max Hayes, the inspirational young man who takes fans pitch side every week at Nottingham Forest. He took home the NewsNow Young Football Content Creator judges award.

And keep your ears open for a surprise guest appearance from a football legend during Robbie’s segment!
