Matt Derrig

Matt has been appointed media and marketing officer for League One outfit Northampton Town Football Club, after completing a successful two-year internship at Sixfields stadium while studying for his Multimedia Journalism degree.

“I’ve been a football fanatic since I was about five years old, and being from Northampton, to have the opportunity to get experience at my local club, who I grew up watching, was a genuine dream come true,” said Matt.

“Now, to get a permanent job with the club means a lot to me – to be able to have a career in an area you enjoy is very important and if I wasn’t at the University of Northampton, I wouldn’t be in the position I am now.”
