My name is Kirshon. I write articles about sport. I live in Biggin Hill and I am studying for a sports journalism degree at UCFB Wembley. I have always been told that I have a way with words and this is the gift that I wish to carry out in my work.
I now work with Aldershot Town as a media assistant and I hope to help provide media content for the Shots. Bit of a coincidence they play in red and blue just like my team Crystal Palace.
I have worked with the likes of GB Articles (now called The Goalmouth Scramble), ReadEverything, Vavel etc. I hope to work with more sports blogs and companies in the near future.
I love watching my team Crystal Palace on the weekends, its just something about that atmosphere. I also have a passion for travelling and discovering new things.

Read Everything – Volunteer Journalist (January 2017 – May 2018)
I had written articles for ‘Read Everything’ with a total of 59 published articles since I started. I have written about manager sackings, transfer rumours, match previews, FA bans, poor form with many different players, and predicted starting elevens.
GB Articles (now The Goalmouth Scramble) – Volunteer Journalist (November 2017 – August 2019)
I had written articles for this football blog that have discussed the 2018 World Cup, Premier League, UEFA Champions League etc.
George Bennett, the founder of GB Articles hired me by finding the articles that I had written for ‘Read Everything’. In these months, he taught me how to expand on the areas of football, to write about tactical analysis, match reports, player portraits and team portraits.
U19 National League Alliance - Volunteer Journalist (September 2018 - January 2019)

VAVEL- Volunteer Journalist (August 2019 - Present)
The Vavel office found my work on the Read network. I had written a few articles on Burnley and I agreed to write for them as they liked my articles. I work with a few volunteer journalists to bring the latest news, rumours, previews and reports on football.
