Tracks Venues

In this session...

Swapping touchlines for bylines, the path from player or manager to sports writer is becoming increasingly popular amongst ex-professionals, as the appeal of analysis and punditry outweighs the intense scrutiny of managing and coaching.

With unique insights from the worlds of football and rugby, join Jamie Carragher, Martin Keown and Sir Clive Woodward, who will reveal how their sporting careers informed their editorial style and the responsibility they feel on critiquing on their former teammates.

Join Sir Clive Woodward OBE, Jamie Carragher, Martin Keown and Lee Clayton for a lively panel discussion on life after playing and coaching.

As Head of Sport for the SJA 2014 Sports Newspaper and Sports Website of the Year, Lee will give his take on what he looks for in an ex-pro and what makes them as successful off-field as they were on it.

Chaired by Neil Ashton (Football News Correspondent, Daily Mail & Presenter of The Sunday Supplement, Sky Sports 1) this is set to be an unmissable session for any sports fan. View Less
