About Us

New for the 2015-16 season, Behind The Goal is a small little website (Jesus Navas-esque) with bits and bobs from throughout the weird and wonderful world of football. Be that the Football League, Europe, non-league, the Premier League, and whatever else takes our fancy.

The team consists of three student journalist friends at Bournemouth University. The troublesome trio are:

Charlie House
Brighton fan (when they win), and a south-coast Man United follower (when they don’t)…And that’s about as cliché as it gets, right? Charlie enjoys obnoxiously opinionated debates about football, especially when held at a local Wetherspoon’s with a pint of disappointing cider. He also likes going to local gigs, exploring European cities and procrastinating study-time by religiously following TV shows.

Dan Statham
A long term suffering Portsmouth supporter, short-term gambling maestro, long term gambling fool. Dan watches all forms of Football, especially English and European. He is an alcohol enthusiast and long term lover of the ridiculous. Read Dan’s posts for this weeks flutters, European features and much more.

Ollie Heptinstall
An obsessive Exeter City fan, cider enthusiast Ollie likes to waste the majority of his disposable income traipsing around the south of England watching his beloved Grecians. He can also occasionally be seen commentating for Soccer Sight at St James’ Park (the real one) and cycling around Europe on his clapped-out touring bike.
