Adam Hathaway

About a million years ago, Adam, inspired by the likes of the late, great Ian Wooldridge, the cricket commentaries of John Arlott and Richie Benaud, and the columns of John Reason and Hugh McIlvanney; dreamt of being a sports journalist.
But thanks to a halfwit career advisor he spent three and half years training to be a doctor — including delivery five babies and playing a lot of golf — before finally making the break into the world of words.
After a few years working for the Hayter’s Agency, covering loads of meaningless friendlies for a couple of quid a week, he moved onto to become rugby and cricket correspondent for the News of the World and then the Peopleand the Sunday Mirror.
He has also contributed to Agence France Presse, Daily Mirror, The Times, The Telegraph, Golf International, Rugby World and numerous other titles.
He has covered sport all over the world and hopes his misguided careers officer is currently held up in customs right now.
He likes… books, newspapers, roast dinners, curry, Marmite, Fuller’s London pride and the film Zulu.
