New Team Member

Though football’s transfer window may already have passed, we had a late substitution for Team Sport @ Bloomsbury with Kate Wanwimolruk leaving the squad, replaced by Nick Ascroft as the new Senior Editor.

Nick in Nets is a keen footballer and dab hand at any and all pub sports, in particular that most thick-necked and cauliflower-eared physical battle, Scrabble, of which he is currently the British Mind Sports Olympiad Champion. And with his great goalkeeping expertise (how else did you think he got his nickname?) and editorial prowess, you can be confident that every Bloomsbury Sport book he works on will be in great hands.

If you need to contact Nick or indeed any of the team, please contact us here.
