GRV Media is pleased to announce that Tom Avery is joining full-time in September to beef up our Manchester United coverage at popular fan website United In Focus.
Tom moves over from Nub News, a hyperlocal online news platform, where he was a Regional Editor. He has previously worked for United In Focus as a freelancer.
Dan Coombs, the Global Head of Sports Content at GRV Media, said: ‘We lost Tom 18 months or so ago when he was looking for full-time employment. At that stage of our journey with United In Focus, we unfortunately weren’t able to offer him the opportunity he sought.
‘United In Focus is now in a much stronger position, with over 1.1m visitors through the site last month. Now is the right time to increase the quality coverage we are known for. Tom’s passion for Manchester United and in-depth knowledge of the club will prove to be great assets as we look to further develop this franchise’.
Tom Avery said: ‘I have always wanted to get into full-time football journalism, and I really enjoyed my time at United In Focus previously. I know it’s a cliché, but this is very much my dream job. I am raring to go’.
