Toby is a Sports Lifestyle Writer at NationalWorld and reports for our sites across the country including ManchesterWorld, NewcastleWorld, LiverpoolWorld and GlasgowWorld.
Sports Lifestyle can be anything from accessibility issues affecting fans to the lives that stars lead off the pitch and what players are doing to encourage change in society. Stories include the distressing testimonies of Liverpool fans at the Champions League final 2022 in Paris, a Newcastle United superfan releasing a love song to their club, coverage of The Boat Race 2023 and much more.
If you want to shout about something sports-related you're doing, whether it be fundraising or something completely kooky, Toby would love to hear from you.
Before joining NationalWorld, Toby worked as a Senior Digital Journalist for NewcastleWorld reporting on local crime, politics, lifestyle and what's on. Previously he worked across Reach's South East titles including KentLive and SussexLive.
Originally from Reading, Toby followed his family's roots to attend Newcastle University and then went onto News Associates in London. Other bylines include Agence France Presse, The Mirror, Metro, The Irish Times and Fantasy Football Scout.
When not reporting, Toby is a keen cross-country runner and rower - even though friends and colleagues don't quite get the obsession with being wet and muddy all the time.
