James Thacker

Football Editor

A passion for football greatly influenced James while growing up, leading him to make a promise to himself: he would follow “do what you love” advice and ensure that his career was based around football in some way. While playing the sport proved not to be his strong suit, James discovered he possessed a natural talent for writing that led to him covering matches for his school’s newsletters - his first foray into writing about the sport he adores.

After graduating from Durham University with a First Class Degree in Journalism, James spent time interning for a national newspaper before launching his own football blog - at a time when blogs were a relatively new concept. Focusing primarily on tracking rumours and keeping readers as up-to-date as possible, the blog flourished under James’ editorship, and his success eventually caught the eye of BettingTips.net. Having been persuaded to turn his attention to this site, James is now the Football Editor with a special focus on football. His appetite for finding the latest stories, and tracking down the very best value when writing betting tips, remains second to none.

When he’s aware from his laptop, James can usually be found walking his dogs Bonnie and Buzz in the Peak District close to his home. He remains a devoted Manchester United supporter, following a family tradition, and is currently pursuing a football coaching qualification alongside his work at BettingTips.net.
