Meet our new editor: Joshua Thomas

-

We are delighted to announce Joshua Thomas as the new The Football Sack editor leading into the 2021/22 season.

Joshua joins us from Sporting News Australia where he has established himself as a Digital Content Producer with strong angle identification skills and a nose for sniffing out exclusives.

While having also written for Western Sydney Wanderers and Perform Group, Joshua’s appointment is notable as he is a TFS Graduate himself, having gone through the program in 2016 and becoming our 46th graduate.

Since then, TFS has produced a total of 82 graduates and it is this proven pathway to journalism that has Joshua excited to return and “give back” to the program that helped boost his own career.

“I was accepted by The Football Sack at my second attempt and that persistence laid the foundation for what it would take to be a successful sports journalist,” explained Joshua.

“Through this program you’ll likely be pushed beyond your comfort zone more than once but quickly learn there is so much to be gained by doing so.

“For example, during my internship I remember Tim Cahill trying to brush me off for an interview after a Melbourne City match but somehow I discarded my usual shyness in pursuit of the scoop.

Joshua joins a team of industry professionals including Ben Smith, Jacob Windon, Matt Greenlaw and Christian Layland, all of whom are solely focussed on mentoring and preparing this season’s interns for their dream job.

“The Football Sack team will be here to support you every step of the way and we encourage you to ask questions, face your fears and hopefully walk away from the experience ready to work in the field.”

We have a proud history of developing writers through the TFS Internship Program and we look forward to Joshua coming on board to further improve the program.
