Allana Grant - Media Team Member
My name is Allana Grant. I am a freelance journalist, translator and proof-reader working out of the Lanarkshire and Glasgow areas.
I began writing for YFS earlier this year, because I wanted to make a worthwhile contribution to my local community, and what better way to do it, than to write about the sport that I have been passionate about since I was knee high to a grasshopper?
Ok, I won’t lie to you, my motives weren’t completely altruistic, I also really wanted to fulfil my lifelong ambition to become a football journalist. Not an unusual aspiration, I hear you say. Well it is when you consider that I’m registered blind, and wouldn’t recognise a good old fashioned (stramash in the penalty box) if it hit me square in the face.
The notion of becoming one of the world’s few blind football journalists, against all the odds, appealed to me, and besides that, I have the best excuse ever for not understanding the offside rule.
I’m very much looking forward to completing my first full season with YFS. Let’s hope 2015/16 is a successful yearfor us all!
