Writing match articles
It's up to you what you put in your match article - aim to include all the important information from your team's game, but feel free to be subjective.

You should think about what information you look for in reports when you are unable to get to a game.

Details such as goal descriptions, formation changes etc are often important to other fans.

You could try to mention the most important details as early in the article as possible. For example if a player was sent off, do not wait until late in the report to mention it.

You might want to also offer the fans' perspective by mentioning things like the atmosphere, the mood among the supporters and your general matchday experience.

A match article does not have to be like a match report. It can also be a preview, your predictions ahead of a match or your thoughts after it.

In fact, more and more content on 606 involves commenting on matches as they are being played - a great way of interacting with other users as the action unfolds.

But in the end this is your article, your experiences and your perspective so over to you!
