Mr Liverpool 2020/21
My Name is Jake Mathot , I’m 21 years old and currently the winner of Mr Liverpool City Region 2020. Presently I’m studying Sports Journalism at university in Manchester. I have been a kids football coach since I was a young teen and am currently commentator and reporter for Manchester based side Ashton United. Usually the games are on a radio app, however the pandemic has led to games being streamed online for fans, which I have commentated on too.
I am an avid football fan and would thoroughly enjoy working within the business along the lines of broadcasting. This comes from my performance background having been in multiple shows, musicals and more recently doing extra work whenever possible.
I have always enjoyed Spanish and decided I needed to improve my ability to speak the language and went to a place called La Rioja where I worked as an Au Pair for three months in the summer of 2019.
I lived with a family in a town where English was limited and I looked after a 9 year old boy. This was an ideal way to improve my Spanish and an experience I enjoyed.
I enjoy taking on new challenges and opportunities that include helping others. As Mr Liverpool City Region I can push myself to do things I may not have had the chance to do before. I hope the events and charity work that come up in the foreseeable future can help me learn new things just as much as it helps others involved.
Full list of prizes coming soon
