Clough in the thick of it at Lincoln City

By Dave Lee STD

I’m not going to use this blog to promote my friends, but I thought I’d make an exception to share this account from Dan Clough about how he found himself in the middle of one of the biggest stories of the year here in sleepy Lincoln:

[T]he call comes through from the Lincolshire Echo. Their footage hasn’t worked, can they have mine? After agreeing it with my tutor John Cafferkey and the club itself I get to work on putting the entire conference into a working format with usable sound quality for the Echo’s website. It’s done, late, but done. I take it to the Echo, sports editor John Pakey is delighted until ten minutes later when he rings to explain the sound isn’t working on the DVD! Damn it!

If that’s not hands on experience, I’m not sure what is!
