Nick Mashiter

Recommended Posts

Nick Mashiter is the Birmingham based football writer who broke the news of Stuart Webber''s appointment and again yesterday, the news that Ricky Martin, Lee Darnborough and Tony Spearing were leaving.The EEN followed with this headline.........."Technical director Ricky Martin and recruitment chiefs Lee Darnbrough and Tony Spearing reportedly set to leave Norwich City".How does a midlands based journo (Charlie Wyett is another), get to break news ahead of our own lot when they are in and around Carrow Rd and Colney most of the time?

I believe Mashiter is friends with Stuart Webber - or at least had a professional relationship before. Also, he works for the Press Association, who are seen as independent and well respected.

Most information doesn''t come from leaks or tittle tattle overheard on the training ground, it comes from the clubs directly when they want a certain message to get out. Being close to a club usually hinders getting inside information in my experience and Archant will also avoid spreading unofficial news in case it sours their relationship with the club.

[quote user="Lessingham Canary"]Logical Bethnal, but are Archant not members of the press association ?[/quote]Archant, like most UK papers, will almost certainly subscribe to PA and so be able to use their copy. And from the chronology of what happeneed I suspect that once Mashiter was proved right about his initial Webber tweet/story then Archant was willing to take his PA report about Spearing et al on trust.

[/quote]We had to use the toilets at May & Baker Social Club when Norwich Police FC played there on a Thursday afternoon but there was never any toilet paper as the resident bog cleaner was too busy calling bingo every time the phantom bog roll thief struck. Poor Mrs Nutty was having to stand guard at the toilet doors every night frisking people as they left in a effort to solve the mystery that remains to this day. [:D][;)]

If the case is still on file I think it likely the culprit is a flat chested woman.
