Pete Couhig and Phil Catchpole were guest speakers for a group of first and second year sports journalism students from UCFB Wembley at Adams Park on Tuesday evening.
The students attended the Leasing.com Trophy match against Fulham Under 21s to gain an insight into the running of the club, its matchday media operation and the wider role of press officers and local journalists in the game.
After receiving a short tour of the stadium, the visitors had the chance to hear from management consultant Pete Couhig - part of the new structure at the club - and BBC Three Counties reporter Phil Catchpole, asking questions to the pair about their backgrounds and careers.
The students then took to their seats to watch the match before being given the opportunity to contribute in Gareth Ainsworth's post-match press conference.
Great night tonight at @wwfcofficial for their @LeasingcomTrphy game against @FulhamFC U21’s. Great experience getting a behind the scenes view of the club from a media perspective with many thanks to @mattcecil87 and @bluntphil who were very accommodating and informative. pic.twitter.com/jy0DrNEvRA— Jak Richardson (@JakRichardson21) November 6, 2019
