Well this is quite a coup for us and not something I was expecting when I set out for Binfield on Saturday – but goes to show what can happen if you arrive at a game before kick-off!

I’m delighted to be able to say that experienced Berkshire sportswriter Dave Wright has joined the Football in Berkshire ranks as ‘roving reporter’.

Dave will be filing match reports from the games he’s at and has already had Wokingham & Emmbrook vs AFC Aldermaston and Binfield vs AFC Totton published on the site.

If you aren’t familiar with Dave’s work, he’s an award-winning sportswriter with over 50 years experience having worked on the Wokingham and Bracknell Times, Reading Evening Post, News of the World, Bracknell and Wokingham News and the Reading Chronicle and is well known with Berkshire football circles.

As well as football, Dave continues to cover cricket and hockey in Berkshire and is a National award-winning hockey journalist.

I first met Dave nearly 14 years ago when I started out my career in the media at the Reading Evening Post where he was Sports Editor, and I am absolutely delighted he’s agreed to start contributing to Football in Berkshire.

Wright joins a growing group of contributors here at Football in Berkshire as we aim to cover as wide a variety of the game in the Royal County as we possibly can.

We do still have some gaps in our coverage we’d like to fill, so if you are interested in contributing to the website this season, please email
