MA Sports Journalism student takes on media role at Chesterfield FC


League 1 football club Chesterfield have appointed a Sheffield Hallam sports journalism student as their new media editor for the second time.

Iain Pearce is due to take over from former student Josh Power after doing work experience at the club.

Iain said: “I love football and I can’t wait to get started at Chesterfield. I’m stepping into big shoes as Josh has done a great job.”

He will manage the social media, website and video content for Chesterfield, promoted as champions from League 2 at the end of last season.

Iain has almost completed his MA after filming video previews for the arrival of the Tour de France in Sheffield.  Josh, who graduated with distinction in 2012, produced a video documentary about Rotherham United as part of his degree. He is taking a new job in his home town with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
