Weekly sports editor reaches for the Sky

A weekly newspaper sports editor has switched to broadcasting after securing a job with Sky Sports.

Chris Sherrard, of the Ballymoney and Moyle Times, has left the Johnston Press title after more than three years.

Chris told the Times: “I’ve made a lot of good friends in my time with the Times and and I’ll miss them all.

“It’s hard to believe that I’m into my fourth year with the paper – it’s gone by so fast. But the time is right for me to move on.

“It’s also been a real pleasure to work with so many good people.

“The Times’ team is a great one to work within and I’m going to miss all of them.

“I have many great memories to take with me, I’ve met wonderful people who I will always miss. “I found my beautiful wife here and I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the people and, in particular, sports teams and personalities of Ballymoney and Moyle.”

The new sports editor is Chris Kilpatrick.
