David Penrose

I am an Adelaide-based freelance journalist who previously worked at The Messenger for two years.

I have covered general news and a wide range of sports.

I also covered the Adelaide Bite's 2015/16 Australian Baseball League campaign, producing three to seven stories each week on top of my Messenger duties.

I have a strong interest in sports journalism, and also the rapidly changing digital landscape.

In addition to The Messenger and Advertiser I have had work published by a range of outlets, including Fox Sports, the Australian Open website, Australian Ice Hockey League website, Adelaide Bite website, and the Australian Baseball League website.

I started off as a regular contributor with the Messenger, producing between 8-12 articles across the 11 versions of the paper each week. In summer I covered Turf Cricket, while in winter I covered the Amateur and Southern football leagues.

In the past I have produced a weekly magazine for the Volleyball South Australia State League.

I also run a couple of online publications – ABL Stats and SANFL Stats – in my own time.
