Ayrshire Post - - War Hero’s Dreams Come True -

Trainee sports hacks hit the big time and re­ported live from Ham­p­den at an an­nual foot­ball con­fer­ence.

The team of UWS Ayr Cam­pus fourth year stu­dents pro­duced news con­tent, cre­ated pod­casts and man­aged so­cial me­dia.

Stu­dent Fraser Clarke said: “It’s been great to test out our skills in the real world.”

Se­nior lec­turer Eliz­a­beth McLaugh­lin added: “They wit­nessed aca­demic dis­course and de­bate first- hand at a high­pro­file sport­ing event and were given the chance to iden­tify, and re­port on, news­wor­thy hooks around Scot­land’s na­tional sport.”
