Simon Lillicrap

Simon Lillicrap is a Football League aficionado casting a keen eye over tennis, athletics and more. Having been at The Sportsman for four years and with a bank of experience from Opta, BBC and ITV, his ability to relate all sporting things back to a particular Championship club is remarkable, if a little unnerving.
