    I run the Facebook account for my local amateur team and I’ve found, on occasion, that while some managers or coaches may not like the intrusiveness, some players can be the same! It’s taking me a fair few weeks to chase our new players simply to get a photo of them holding our kit for a picture on our page.

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for the comment. Tis an interesting problem – not everyone wants their work life document and made public, so why wouldn’t footballers be the same. Takes a certain level of trust I think for somebody in the Social Media team to be accepted into the backroom staff.

        Hi Chris,

        When players are sigend/recruited it should be clear that this is a “requirement” from the club’s side. The player is expected to line up on such details. That’s what I think!

    Sean, do you know much about these ‘one or two’ individuals that look after large sporting organisations’ twitter accounts? eg. how much they might be paid, how they operate?
