James Gordon
Media & Commercial Director at Warrington Town FC
I’m a sports digital consultant, journalist and media man at Warrington Town FC, playing in National League North in England. It is a local team that has gone from playing in local leagues in front of <100 people, to now playing in tier 6 in front of 1,000+, increasing turnover and participation in that time. James controls all off-field elements, such as media, marketing, ticketing, merchandising, sponsorship, and can provide significant insight in to these areas. As well as that, he has been an administrator within the Northern Premier League for the past five years, so he has good insight in to how things work. Gareth Southgate’s missed penalty in Euro ’96 is his earliest sporting memory. And it seared into his brain so sharply that he's been obsessed by sport ever since. He's an accredited journalist in rugby league, football, ice hockey and basketball. He was thrust in to the digital marketing agency world working for clients like Carling, Nationwide and O2 on their football and rugby activations. Both of those experiences, and his burning desire to cover as much live sport as possible, led to him creating JDG Media in 2010.
