Meet the Media Team

By Scott Cummings

Getting to know Ryan & Greg

Those of you who have been to our games this season may have noticed a few things different off the park.

One of them is the introduction of video analysis and the recording of our games with the videos being uploaded to our You Tube Channel -

Greg Cruickshank on the left and Ryan Townsley on the right have come on board this season and have been doing a magnificent job so far. The match highlights is something that all the squad and coaching staff look forward to seeing and hopefully it is the same for our supporters.

The website sat down with the boys looking to get to know a little more about them.

Q - What do you do? Describe your role to us.
Greg - Performance Analyst - I look at the footage and see what we have done well and not so well then report it back to the coaches.

Ryan - I am the media manager, controlling both the video side and the social media side of the senior side.

Q - Why did you get involved?
Greg - I am always wanting to expand my knowledge when I can and my role at the club is helping me do that.

Ryan - I already had an interest in media and joining Jeanfield made sense because my family was already so involved. (Ryans brother Sam is our 2002 Blacks team keeper, a team which his dad Andy helps run) It gave me a free opportunity to learn and get experience in the field that I am interested in.

Q - How has it been so far?
Greg - It has been a big learning curve so far. I am really enjoying it and relishing the challenge that my role brings.

Ryan - It has been fun. I have met a good group of people because of it and I get to constantly improve on what we are doing which is extremely satisfying.

Q - What is the best thing about being at the club?
Greg - Everyone at the club has been so welcoming and it helped me settle in quicker than I thought. From the committee, coaching staff and the players its has been brilliant so far.

Ryan - The banter from everyone is brilliant, except Gregs terrible jokes.

Along with our You Tube channel we also have Twitter and Instagram. See the links below and please follow for match updates and other news.
