Merry Christmas from the SJA

By Steven Downes, Secretary, SJA
On behalf of your committee, I would like to wish all members of the Sports Journalists’ Association, their families and our colleagues from the wider world of journalism, plus all visitors to this website, our very best wishes for Christmas and for a very prosperous new year (well, we can wish, can’t we?).

2008 has been a whirlwind of a year for the Association, with the working demands of the Beijing Olympics, the delight of a Welsh Six Nations victory and the intensity of a European Cup final involving two English clubs, all book-ended by the most successful SJA British Sports Journalism and Photography Awards and our 60th anniversary British Sports Awards yet staged.

We look forward to seeing many of you at our Sports Journalism Awards at The Brewery in March, our annual meeting – for SJA members only – to be held at the offices of UK Sport on April 22, plus our busy programme of lunches, golf days and other events.
