Having completed his NCTJ Diploma in June 2014 following a BA Hons in Media Writing, Sean is now freelancing for UK sports news agency Sportsbeat. He is from, and recently moved back to, a town near Manchester called Chester.

He is an avid fan of a club that he will not name for fear of being ostracised by rival fans, and has been told on many occasions that he devotes too much time to football, mainly by people whom he believes to be chemically imbalanced.

He enjoys heated debate on football, among less important subjects such as other sports and politics, and welcomes any constructive criticism or praise that you might have concerning his articles. Comments of an ignorant nature shall be ignored.

His other hobbies include writing a novel, reading other people's novels, losing money at poker and expressing his subjective and occasionally objective opinions. If so inclined, you can read about his latest exploits by following him on twitter @shbgetreal or take a look at

    Thanks for following up, Sean, and for the kind words. Keep at it with basketball, definitely a sport where the news and storylines never stop. I'd suggest following a B/R writer named Josh Martin, he's my favorite. Really terrific writing.

    Thanks again and I hope all is well.

    Thanks for becoming a fan, Sean! How are you liking B/R? I've really enjoyed your writing, especially as I try and learn more about world futbol. I grew up with some of the more American sports like baseball and basketball, but love futbol. Keep up the great work and if you have any questions or suggestions for the site I hope you won't hesitate to contact me. Thanks again
