Swifts appoint media officer

SWIFTS have brought in James Colasanti as the club’s new media officer.

The journalist, 39, started working with the Bostik North club earlier this year, designing its new website and helping to grow its social media presence.

James is a former sports reporter at local newspapers in Essex and London and is known to many in non league as the host of the weekly #JCPodcast and editor of the jcnonleague.com website.

He also works on a freelance basis for a national newspaper and does PR consultancy work with sports clubs in Essex.

The club felt the time was right to bring in professional media support at a time when it is enjoying high-profile success in the FA Cup and an encouraging start to its league campaign.

James said: “It was a nice surprise to be asked to join the club in this capacity and one I was happy to accept.

“There is untapped potential to be realised at Swifts in the coming years and hope to play a part in bringing it to fruition.”
