npower Football League Professionals Work Alongside Teens For 'What's Your Goal?' Competition
Released on: August 22, 2011, 2:46 am
Earlier in the year, npower offered every budding Alex
Ferguson, potential Howard Webb and future Jeff Stelling a chance to
bring their dreams to life with the 'What’s Your Goal?' competition.
From the high-pressure role of a football manager to the split-second timing of a
pitch-side photographer, this was an opportunity for children yearning for a job in
sports media to get first-hand experience of the industry.
The prizes took youngsters to the QPR training ground, inside the Sky Sports studios
and even within touching distance of the players in the npower Championship Play-Off final at Wembley Stadium.
Among the professionals offering their advice were Queens Park Rangers manager, Neil
Warnock and Sky Sports presenter, Dave Jones.
In this three-part series, the children demonstrate the desire and passion needed to
cut it in one of the nation’s biggest industries.
And for those youngsters aiming for a similar career, heed the advice of 12-year-old
Oliver Marden who, having won the chance to experience being a sports presenter,
said: "You should try for everything and grasp every opportunity you can."
npower is bringing back its What’s Your Goal initiative bigger and better than ever
before for 2012. Any young people interested in getting involved should keep an eye
