One of the longest-serving members on the production team, Geoff initially joined Sky as a freelancer back in 1992.

Starting as a booker on the long-running football discussion show ‘The Footballers Show’ presented initially by Richard Keys and latterly by Brian Woolnough, Geoff went on to produce the show.

The Footballers’ Football Show was widely regarded as the football discussion show at the time and featured an impressive cast of over 500 guests during its run including the late Bobby Moore, FA Chief Executive Graham Kelly and Arsenal Chairman David Dein.

The deal signing live coverage of the FA Premier League to Sky Sports meant that Geoff’s skills and experience were called upon for a whole new set of support programmes for football as well as live coverage of the games themselves.

As an on-site producer for all live football coverage Geoff became the Match Director’s eyes and ears on the ground for every game, and this is was a role he performed until the end of the 1998-1999 season.

In 1999 Geoff made the move to reporter alongside Claire Tomlinson on live Premier League and FA Cup coverage for both Sky Sports and Sky Sports News.

In his time he has developed relationships throughout football and is instrumental in inviting many live guests onto Sky Sports live football, coverage such as George Graham, Alan Shearer, Steve Bruce, Graeme Souness and Garry McAllister.

In his role as reporter Geoff has travelled far and wide to get interviews including going to LA to interview Arsenal fan Kevin Costner before the 1998 FA Cup Final.

Robbie Williams, Mike Tyson, Rod Stewart and the Spice Girls are among Geoff’s other celebrity scoops for Sky Sports.
