As a young(er) man, I played professional football for Leyton Orient and overseas in Scandinavia, before playing Non-League for Canvey Island, Billericay and Grays.
I dipped out the game out for a few years after that, but now I’m back in, albeit not playing myself.
Now a football broadcaster and UEFA B licensed coach, I started working with BT three years ago, reporting for its Saturday results show – BT Sport Score.
Now part of the live presentation team for BT’s Vanarama National League coverage, I travel to games across the country, interviewing managers live before the match. I have also clocked up hours of radio experience as a broadcaster for talkSPORT, as well as joining some of the best sporting commentators live in the BT Sport Score studio.
I am also an ambassador for National League sponsor Vanarama creating match day content, interviewing managers and players whilst becoming a trusted source of information for that particular level.
My life coaching qualification also benefits me in the football world as I coach managers across leagues, something that is becoming increasingly useful as we all begin to realise the importance of looking after the mental as well as physical wellbeing of sportsmen and women.
See Jeff in action.
