Meet the Team at Goodwin Racing

The beauty of telephone betting is the personalised and personable service from another human being. It’s the perfect middle ground between online betting and heading out to your local bookies. Here we’ll introduce you to the friendly, knowledgeable Goodwin Racing team who are on the other end of the phone waiting to take your bets.


A wealth of experience in the Betting Industry; claims his last settling error was in 1985! Big Al is a wizard at table tennis and has set his sights on competing in the over 50’s World Championships. A proud member of the Rogues Gallery Racing Syndicate where he is the official spokesman which thankfully means he doesn’t talk so often now about his beloved Tractor Boys.


Aaron has previously worked in video editing and education. This is his first role in the betting industry and he's taken to it like a duck to water ! He's an avid Spurs fan and loves going to a gig on a night off.


Spurs fan Joel loves to rock a ‘mullett’ just like old Tottenham ledge Chris Waddle! As a youngster he was a snooker champion.


Life and soul of the trading floor you can hear her laugh (or cackle) as far away as Lewes. Gooner Sophe joined us via being a William Hill Shop Manager and a chef de partie at the ‘Ivy’ in Tunbridge Wells. A firm favourite with those lucky punters.


Brightonian Tom was a sports trader in London before joining us in Uckfield. Hes officially the hairiest man on the firm. Supports the mighty Barnet??


Keen fisherman Sean recently joined us from Paddy Power and is proving a massive hit with our customers. Loves his football and a keen fan of Man Utd.


Peter has 30yrs of experience in the betting industry prior to joining Goodwin. Joining our very own Gordon as a keen Millwall fan and disciple of the New Den they still need another 9 to put out a decent team !!

Lucky Pete

Brighton and Hove fanatic Pete hates the new plastic fans that frequent the Annex (even though the last game he saw was at Withdean!). Often seen at Plumpton where he’ll happily unload on a Hendo/Nico hotpot.


From Pizzas to betting ‘Rodders’ has made a seamless transition. The Arsenal, darts and fishing are among his favourite pastimes ; he recently landed a fifty pounder in France.


After many years of service with the ‘Magic Sign’ Sam jumped ship and is now an integral part of our team. Absolutely loves Las Vegas where she has been 44 times. A keen greyhound lover who part owns recent open race winner ‘Homewood Bound’.

John (Spinksy)

‘Spinksy’ heralds from a long line of bookmakers and helped his dad out from a very tender age on the Hill at Epsom or at the Points.


Forced into the family betting business at the tender age of 18! Chelsea through and through.


Horse Racing is John’s passion and is a proud member of the URSA Racing Club where he has had plenty of success! Another keen Seagulls fan who has a soft spot for Liverpool.


NHS trained ‘Rondo’ has a lovely soothing telephone manner and never gets rattled (unless he has a few craft ales at the Xmas do!). Allegedly Dave’s partner Sophie used to be a hairdresser but looking at the state of his barnet we find this very hard to believe. Another one of the CFC faithful!


Joined us from MarathonBet in the summer and is a valuable member of our team. Italian food loving Joe has to lay off the pasta in June though as he loves to participate in the London to Brighton annual bike race.


Joined us from MarathonBet where he was head of UK horseracing team. A very useful footballer in his day where he captained the all conquering Portsmouth Youth team alongside ‘sicknote’ Darren Anderton.


A very unadventurous palate! A plain cheese sandwich for lunch and a burger in the evening; not a lettuce leaf or a vegetable in sight. Considers himself a judge on double delight, hatrick heaven first goalscorers but gets very defensive when you ask to see his profit/loss statement!


6ft 6 Adam has always been in the betting game. The last 12 years hes been co owner of ‘Bet247’ in Hastings with his dad Rob. Loves spending time with his young family and going to the ‘Etihiad’ where he does a mean rendition of ‘Blue Moon’.


‘Pottage’ is the form expert on the firm. He spends hours on big handicaps where he feels there maybe value in opposing the fancied horses.


South Londoner Gordon started his career in bookmaking where he worked in the call centre and on course for William Hill before changing his career to work in the Stock Exchange where he was a very successful trader. Millwall fan Gordon has done a full circle and is loving life at Goodwins.

Sophie B

Soph has the unenviable task of being Julian’s PA! After a days grafting in the office there's nothing she likes more than unwinding with a large G & T.


Born and bred in Chingford surprisingly he is an avid QPR fan! Scott has a wealth of betting experience and particularly loves the horses and dogs. He has quickly become one of our top performers.


Ex city trader who joined us in November is already a firm favourite with our customers. Mark loves his Tottenham and his horses. He can often be seen riding one home at Wolverhampton or Kempton in the evening.


Loves all sport and in his own words he is ‘living the custard cream’ at Goodwin Racing. A mean darts player who a couple of years beat ‘Silverback’ Terry ‘O Shea in the English Open!


After 7 years with Ladbrokes, Gooner fan Mikki joined us to bolster our call centre. Loves the ‘arrers’ siting her favourite player as Adrian ‘Jackpot’ Lewis!


Former Hills employee Ben has a wealth of industry experience and is excelling in his new role at Goodwins. Yet another Liverpool fanatic!


Recently joined us from Paddy Power. Louise is a keen Brighton Fan whose favourite player is local lad Solly March!


Previously a hospital porter at the Conquest in Hastings. James has a real passion for horse racing and was part owner of the multi winning ‘Peggy Sue’ trained by Adam West.


Family man Gareth likes nothing more than a red hot ruby siting chicken phal as his fav. Shame his beloved Spurs aren't so warm!


Chris has worked in the catering and hospitality business for over 25yrs owning cafés and supplying a top quality service to countless events. Prior to this he worked for Victor Chandler credit in London and on the racecourses. He's now come back to his beloved racing and has quickly become a valued member of the Goodwin team !


Jay is a keen Charlton fan after spending much of his youth living in Plumstead. He also loves his racing and cricket. After playing cricket at a very high level he now spends the majority of his time in the middle as a highly respected umpire.


He enjoys nothing more than a rock festival! Jed has many skills including video making so the Goodwin Racing TV Channel will be coming soon.


Tyler is another keen Liverpool fan who finds any excuse to go to Anfield. Previously an acting coach who changed profession to join Corals. He has settled in brilliantly and is a very popular member of the Goodwin team.


Zanda has joined the Goodwin team directly from Paddy Power. A keen sports fan and follower of Man Utd Zanda also loves the darts and predicts Luke Humphries to be the next big thing !!


Paul likes nothing more than a day at the races or a round of golf ! He's worked at Hove greyhound stadium and his in depth analysis of the betting game puts him up there with our very own Stu 'The Judge Pottage' !!

Stuart W

Stu loves his horseracing and cites Longchamp as his favourite track. Did a 10 year stint at Hills after running his own café/bar in Majorca!


We're absolutely delighted that Glen has joined us here at Goodwin. Glen loves his football and at the age of 7 years old he was getting noticed ! By the age of 9 he joined Crystal Palace and was in their youth set up for a number of years. He was offered his first professional contract at the age of 17 playing for Sutton Utd and was considered good enough to earn a place training with the England 'C' Team. He still loves his footy and is an avid Leeds fan getting upto Elland Road as often as he can !


We're delighted to welcome Michael back to Goodwin. Having previously been a team member back in 2020 at Goodwin Racing the transition to the Telephone Service has been seamless.
