I Love sports betting - the science and careful study, the final decisions making my selections, the excitement of the action... and the thrill is any of your bets have been successful.”

Greetings! I am James (known as Jay), a Scouser aged 47 from Kirkby in Liverpool.

I live with Angie, my girlfriend of 25 years.

I am extremely passionate about two sports - football and horseracing. I am a season ticket holder at my beloved Everton Football Club. Until the COVID-19 pandemic struck, I had not missed a competitive match for Everton - home, away or in Europe - for 22 years, and Angie is a regular away match attendee too.

Also on on my 'bucket list' is to attend a race meeting at all 61 current UK racecourses. The most recent visit was to Kempton's all-weather meeting in August - that was racecourse number 42 clocked up!
