Andy Hamilton

Since becoming a writer for The Galleon I’ve been able to add a lot of work to my clippings folder. I’m part of the Arts & Ents and Sports teams, meaning I write a variety of articles including movie reviews, gig reviews, match reports, analysis and interviews.

My work for The Galleon was rewarded when I was nominated for five of their end-of-year awards, winning ‘Best Sports Writer’.

I’ve also been published in the Yeovil Town FC and Yeovil Town Ladies FC official matchday programmes, and to continue the Glovers theme I’ve also written for the fanzine On To Victory.


Movies With Marsh

I made my radio debut on BBC Radio Bristol & Somerset, giving a live preview before a Yeovil Town game for their Saturday Sport show. I was then invited to BBC Somerset HQ to shadow presenter Emma Britton on her breakfast show.

In addition, I’ve made appearances on South Coast Sports Radio providing live commentary on Havant & Waterlooville FC games.

My biggest involvement in radio has been for PureFM, where I presented a 10-part series called Movies with Marshcurrently co-host a Sunday sport show and read news headlines.


Best Team in the West

Popular websites that I have contributed to include It’s Round and It’s White, Last Word on Sports and The 92.

The articles that I wrote for my college paper The Strode Ledger have now been archived online.

I run my own blogs and websites including Best Team in the West, Movies with Marsh and Somerset Stadiums, making sure to keep them updated with regular content.

Me and my friend Tyler also have a YouTube channel where we review films called A Bloke and a Half. We upload a new video every Friday.
