BaylissBlogs was originally created as a space where I could post the football articles that  I wrote in my spare time.

Now that I am involved with other publications, the blog has evolved into my own individual page where I post the pieces that currently don’t have a place elsewhere. Although primarily football based, posts may also focus on other sports.

The work I do for both the  Birmingham Mail and The Football Hipsters Podcast can be found on the relevant pages.



My name is Jake Bayliss and I am currently a 3rd year History student at Bangor University, with plans to study Sports Broadcast Journalism at Staffordshire University.

An Aston Villa season ticket holder for over a decade, I have a deep love for the game and see writing as the way I can be closest to the sport.
