Meet the Goodwin Racing Team Register CALL US DEPOSIT Alan 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. Sam (GT) Leeds United fanatic who likes nothing more than an afternoon’s racing at Plumpton. ‘Telf’ is unhappy at being seeded no 2 to Chris in the Goodwin darts rankings particularly as he had nine darts in hand to beat Dean Winstanley at the English Open at Selsey a couple of years ago (he still managed to lose though!). Ben (KP) ‘KP’ is the office joker and at the tender age of 22 he claims to have played for every football team in Sussex! AFC Uckfield are his current team (anything to get out of working Saturdays). Jack He is new to the industry but learning fast! We head hunted him from being the ‘Queue Marshal’ at Waitrose where all the ladies doted on him. When Jack gave them the news he was moving on there was uproar with the local Uckfield Talk facebook inundated with entries from mourning housewives! Tom 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?? Ryan Brighton fan Ryan has a constant supply of Haribo on his desk and is head of our Whatsapp team. He plays snooker for a local team with his highest break being ‘70’. Sophie 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. Jim Along with ‘KP’ has everyone in the office in stitches. Staunch patriot and Chelsea fan; does not take kindly to any criticism of ‘Super Frank’. Sam 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’. Chris The official darts champion of Goodwin Racing. Chris was a co owner of a small group of shops in East Sussex before he joined us. He loves his ‘Heavy Metal’ and Tottenham Hotspur….poor lad! 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. Graham (Gman) A former ‘Betting Shop Manager Of The Year’ finalist back in 1999 the ‘G’ Man is still delighting the punters with his silky smooth customer service skills. He is the office pharmacist and confectionist so if you’ve a headache or a sugar craving hes your man. Loves Everton. Michaela As well as having the unenviable task of being the Boss's PA she has the important task of looking after the firm's goldfish! 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. Ben Forced into the family betting business at the tender age of 18! Chelsea through and through. Simon A beautiful telephone manner where nothing seems to ruffle him; that is until he goes on our Whats app service and then he can become a proper ‘Meltdown Mary!’. Ex Marathonbet and a keen follower of the Seagulls. Dave 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! Joe 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. Darren 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. Paul 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! Adam 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’. Stuart ‘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. Gordon 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. Dave Cooke The bouncy castle king of East Sussex where he is the proud owner of 40 castles! If we’re short staffed ’muscles’ will step into the roll of customer service agent seamlessly! Mikki After 7 years with Ladbrokes Gooner fan Mikki joined us to bolster our call centre.
