Stuart Stratford

For the last ten years, I have written the well-respected football (soccer) website, A Cultured Left Foot, focussing on Arsenal FC but with a broader outlook than most club-specific sites.

The daily posts are up to 1000 words and range from news and opinion pieces to book reviews. there is a mixture of writing styles for the posts, from formal through to reasonably jovial although to be fair, it was tears of despair as the second half of the last Premier League season unfolded.

I am currently lead correspondent for UK Soccer Shop's blog, reporting on football kit and boot releases, paying attention to SEO and keyword requirements, as well as writing for FTN, a football-based website which concentrates solely on transfers news.

Previously, I have written for The Sun’s Dream Team site, Goal! and Premier League view, on more general football (soccer) topics. These have ranged from opinion pieces to news pieces.

I also contributed a chapter to the anthology, So Paddy Got Up, edited by Andrew Mangan.
