Hannah Pinnock

As a passionate and dedicated football writer, I bring over two years of industry experience and a wealth of knowledge acquired through my Sports Journalism degree from the University of Gloucestershire. Since graduating in May 2021, my journey in the field has been marked by growth and versatility.

I commenced my professional journey with Reach PLC, initially contributing as a trends writer across their Midlands websites. Then, I swiftly transitioned into a full-time role with the prestigious Liverpool Echo in August 2021, where I covered the dynamic football scenes of Liverpool and Everton.

In October 2022, I embarked on a new chapter with Reach PLC, undertaking the role of a Women's Football Writer. This venture has seen my work prominently featured on their Midlands sites, as well as other platforms such as Football London and The Mirror. My dedication to the nuanced and evolving landscape of women's football has allowed me to contribute meaningfully to the discourse surrounding the sport.

I also have a broad multimedia skillset with experience in copy and feature writing, interviewing, live blogging, creating and publishing social media content, presenting and producing video and audio content and I have experience with Adobe software such as Premier Pro and Audition.

A snippet of my best work

Inside story of Nottingham Forest Women's 33-year rise

Lisa Dawkins envisioned the day Nottingham Forest Women would grace the turf at the City Ground and share the facilities and support of their male counterparts.

She was involved with the women’s set up right from its inception in 1990 through until 2019. In just under 30 years, she wore many hats as a player, manager and director of football.

Throughout the 70s and 80s, the club had a women’s team in various forms, but this one had the backing of the club. They were operating solely on a volun

Robert Vilahamn given selection headache as Spurs await Bethany England return

The start to the 2023/24 Women’s Super League season couldn’t have gone much better for Tottenham and Martha Thomas.

The Scotland international completed a move to North London on deadline day from WSL rivals Manchester United and has been a resounding success in the early stages of the campaign. The 27-year-old already leads the league’s goal-scoring charts with six to her name, ahead of Brighton’s Elisabeth Terland in second with four goals.

Spurs themselves sit third in the league standings

Inside Darren Carter's new Birmingham City challenge as Blues target return

Few know what it means to represent Birmingham City better than Darren Carter.

A childhood Blue, youth team product and now women’s team manager — the 39-year-old’s life, and career, has always circled back to one club. It all started back in 1988 when his father took him to his first game and from that point forward he was hooked.

Fast forward 14 years, Carter became a club hero in his own right when, at just 18 years of age, he scored the crucial spot-kick against Norwich City in the 2002 pl

The making of Rachel Daly - from US university to England's great World Cup hope

Amidst the jubilation on the final day of the Women’s Super League season, as Chelsea were crowned champions for a fourth consecutive year and Leicester City valiantly fought off relegation, a smaller - but no less noteworthy celebration - unfurled at Meadow Park.

Aston Villa had just beaten Europe-chasing Arsenal 2-0 away from home and Rachel Daly was on the scoresheet to not only claim the Golden Boot ahead of Manchester City’s Khadija Shaw, but match Vivianne Miedema ’s record for the most g

Sarina Wiegman has already shown England managers don't need to be English

Sarina Wiegman may not be English, but she made history with England earlier this year when she guided the Lionesses to glory at the Euros, and she did it after less than a year in charge.

The Dutch football coach was appointed manager of the women’s national side back in 2020 and formally took charge in September 2021. She arrived with an exceptional CV, having previously won the European Championship with the Netherlands in 2017.

Not only did she guide the women’s side to their first-ever vi

Wolves Women manager Dan McNamara on balancing coaching and military service

On May 21, 2022 Wolves boss Dan McNamara huddled over a small computer screen over 7,000 miles away in the Falkland Islands, to watch his side play their biggest game in recent history.

The manager, who is also a Corporal in the Royal Air Force, was undertaking an Out of Area overseas and had to watch his side from afar as they took on Southampton in the hope of clinching promotion to the FA Women’s Championship.

McNamara was due to be flown home in order to make the game, but unpredictable we

Liverpool looking for repeat of turnaround that ended Arsenal dominance

When manager Matt Beard took charge of Liverpool Women for a second time in May 2021, it wasn’t the first time he was tasked with completing a huge turnaround at the club.

Ahead of his second spell on Merseyside last year, the Reds were still battling in the Championship after a disappointing first season in the second division. It was his job to get them back onto the big stage and he duly delivered as they secured promotion last term.

In 2012, after three years at Chelsea, Beard was brought

Zidane loved Liverpool legend who suffered familiar Alexander-Arnold problem

Trent Alexander-Arnold's omission from the England squad to face Germany on Monday night has once again sparked debate over Gareth Southgate's inability to utilise one of the nation's most promising young talents.

While there is plenty of competition, with Reece James and Kyle Walker often the preferred option - the England boss has previously experimented with the right back in midfield. Over the weekend, Southgate explained why Alexander-Arnold hasn't been getting minutes in an England shirt

Liverpool defender released after changing Trent position made unlikely return

No academy footballer wants to be told they are being released by their club after they’ve dedicated the best part of their teenage years to making it as a professional. But for thousands of young players across the country, the odds are stacked firmly against them.

Only a select few make it at a club in the English Football League, even less are successful at a team in the top flight. Official statistics released by the showed, of the 4,109 players born between September 1995 and August 2000 w
