Profile: First off welcome to my blog. I am Daniel Cox, 20 years old and currently in my final year of studying Journalism at Sheffield Hallam University. From the age of 6 years old i have always being regarded as football mad by my family and friends, supporting my hometown team Scunthorpe United and Manchester United. For the latter i often used to get called a ' glory supporter' however i am always quick to remind people that i have family in Manchester and i started following them the season before they won the Treble! As well as been known as ' Mr Statto ' for my knowledge of the game from an early age, i was also a keen footballer myself, a Right Back who narrowly missed out on trials for Scunthorpe United at the age of 15. I was always a keen writer from an early age, and felt the nearest i could get to be involved in football is writing about the game i love. I have been lucky to write for Scunthorpe United since the age of 17 years old. I write the away overview as well as interviewing players fo in the matchday programme and for the official club website. I feel this has helped me improve as a writer.
