‘Gary is an excellent sports editor who has greatly improved the Gloucestershire Gazette website’s sports section in the past year and does a superb job of producing all the sports pages single-handedly.

In the past year, he has maintained the consistent growth of unique users for the sports section online and coped well with staff redundancies which have directly impacted his workload.

Gary goes above and beyond what is expected of him in terms of working hours and is a fantastic asset to the Gazette.’

Michael Purton, Divisional Deputy Editor, Newsquest Midlands South and Gloucestershire
