Tom is a young sports writer who has previously contributed to the likes of BBC, The Times, Mirror online, talkSPORT and Liverpool ECHO as well as being Media Officer at non-league Marine Football Club. A big fan of Everton, bear in mind that his articles will come from the point of view of a man with a recent past of footballing let-downs and disappointment. However, he also adopted FC Barcelona as his second club so expect a rather rosier outlook on the continental side of things.
