“I’ve got what I’m not afraid to call ‘a pitch’ for you.”It was Charlie Rowlands, South Cheshire Harriers’ media executive, messaging me. Oh no, I thought. I don’t like the sound of this already. “The first ever running of the brand new Crewe Parkrun will take place on Saturday,” he continued. “It’s big for Crewe – greater community fitness, fun for all ages, it’s free for everyone, yada yada.
Harry Pickering has his heart set on earning a new contract at Crewe Alex. The club have experienced difficulty in persuading players to sign extensions in recent years. This term, George Cooper refused before being sold to Peterborough in January, and James Jones and Callum Ainley are the latest in a lengthening line to stall on decisions. But they will have no such trouble with Pickering, who has excelled in midfield alongside the experienced Paul Green in recent weeks.
Andy Aspinall is hoping Crewe FC’s solid draw at Wythenshawe has set a platform for a strong second half to the season. The two sides shared a goalless draw in the Cheshire Premier encounter on Saturday, in what was only Crewe’s second league game of 2018. Manager Aspinall was pleased with the performance against their third-placed hosts, and now hopes they can get going with the second 14 of the 28-game campaign. He said: “It was a great game, how it finished 0-0 I will never know.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
