From the very first day that MyFootballWriter was conceived by former Evening News football writer Rick Waghorn, our aim has always been very simple – to give the supporters of Norwich City a good read about their favourite football club.
Eleven years and however many millions of pages later, nothing has changed in that regard.
We just want to give you a good, footie read – where you now live your busy lives. On your laptop, tablet or mobile.
Long, long gone are the days when the only way to access your Norwich City news was via the newsagents at the end of the street.
From the moment that the Canaries launched their own, official website, Norwich City news became their’s to own and share.
And whilst the latest news from Carrow Road will always form part and parcel of our coverage, what we also aim to offer is the best in City opinion and analysis by an ever-growing stable of accomplished, local sports writers led by MFW Editor Gary Gowers.
Be they young or old, male or female, our writers all have one thing in common – they all share a lifelong passion for Norwich City Football Club.
MFW has, however, two further purposes.
From the start, it has always sought to offer supporters the chance to add their voice to the debate and be an active part of the MFW community – safe in the knowledge that all comments are carefully moderated and monitored before being published.
No-one will be subjected to the level of sustained and personal abuse seen elsewhere on today’s Internet. Robust debate is healthy; as is a healthy respect for the opinions of others.
It is a similar promise we make to local advertisers – that their brand will be safe with MyFootballWriter; that their ad will not be thrown to all four corners of the Internet. Rather it will stay close to home; focussed on a loyal and local audience here in Norfolk.
Secondly, MFW wants to give new, young writers their first, big break in the field of sports journalism.
The likes of Will, Connor, Emma and Sam have already proved that they can master the art of great sports writing; to engage an audience with their thoughts and opinions long before they have left either school or college.
So our door is always open to anyone who wishes to follow in their foot-steps.
