Alan J. H Pattullo (1991) wins Sports Feature Writer of the Year
Scotsman Sports Writer Alan, was delighted to win Sports Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards dinner last month. Alan writes:
"I just know it would have interested me to know that someone had gone into any form of journalism from school when I was there (nobody really mentioned Andrew Marr to me!).
Submissions for the award were interviews with 1970s Scotland World Cup stars David Harvey and Don Masson and also a piece on the ill-fated attempt to merge Hearts and Hibs in the summer of 1990, a hugely controversial episode which I remember reading about in the Old Library at school. I hope Loretto pupils are still given access to newspapers in this internet age as they remain - in my opinion - an important and very much still relevant portal to the world".
