Meet The Team

Meet the people who bring Sports Mole to your screens.

There are many moles in the SM family, you know. Read on to find out more about who lives in our hole!


Neil Wilkes
Neil Wilkes
Editor-in-chief

Neil is the co-founder of entertainment website Digital Spy, serving as Editor from 1999 to 2011 before leaving to set up Sports Mole. A season-ticketed Wolves fan, Neil also loves tennis and has a soft spot for player-turned-anchor Annabel Croft. In his spare time he indulges his obsession for trashy TV shows. Neil can be found on Twitter @neothecat.


Alan Jay 100x100
Alan Jay
Business Director

Alan Jay has worked with Editor Neil Wilkes since 2001 and before that was one of the founders of IMDb.com. In addition to being involved in various internet projects he produces films. He has lived his entire life in Chelsea, but has never been to a match but does follow Formula 1, golf and tennis. He can be followed on Twitter @alanjay


The Real Barney Corkhill
Barney Corkhill
Editor

A journalism graduate from the University of Sheffield, Barney firmly believes that there is no such thing as a bad sport. As a lifelong Liverpool fan, he still regularly replays the 2005 Champions League final and lists a host of players from the Anfield club amongst his favourite sportsmen. On the field himself, Barney has forged a reputation as a goalscoring defender with a fearsome left foot that bears an uncanny resemblance to John Arne Riise (nothing to do with the ginger hair). Follow Barney on Twitter @BarneyCorkhill.


Dan Saney
Dan Saney
Deputy Editor

Formerly second-in-command at Digital Spy, Dan brings with him a wealth of experience in the areas of breaking news and newswire editorial. When not indulging in his primary passion - cricket - Dan can usually be found rescuing cats.


Paul Daley-Jones
Paul Jones
Systems Architect

Technical whizz Paul is responsible for every aspect of bringing SM to your screens, from managing the system infrastructure, to developing our CMS and coding pretty much every single part of the site. Paul takes part in diving and trampolining three times a week.


Matt Law
Matt Law
European Football Editor

Matt studied law at Anglia Ruskin University and has since worked with a number of sports websites as a freelance sports writer. He's a keen footballer and a former National Finals table tennis champion. An avid Manchester United fan, Matt names his favourite sportsmen as Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham and Gary Neville.

Darren Plant
Darren Plant
Senior Reporter

Darren graduated from Staffordshire University with a Sports Journalism degree in 2009 and has previously worked for news website InTheNews as well as local newspapers The Cannock Mercury and The Chase Post.
