 Brief description of your activity focus
Historian of British and international sport with interests in heritage, health and physical education

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am a Senior Research Fellow in the International Centre for Sports History and Culture. I am a social
historian with an expertise in the history of sport and leisure and the history of sport and medicine. My
research has focused on a range of issues relating to the development of sport in Britain and also
internationally, and I have published widely in these areas. I am the author of the The Football
Manager: A History (Routledge, 2006), the first academic study of this subject, and Medicine, Sport and
the Body: A Historical Perspective (Bloomsbury Academic, 2012). I was also the editor of Coaching
Cultures (Routledge, 2011), which was a product of a conference I organized titled, ‘Managing
Athletes’. I have presented numerous papers at conferences, contributed entries to the Dictionary of
National Biography and encyclopaedias as well as acting as a referee for leading journals and books
publishers. Other research interests include sport and heritage, sport and learning disability, the
relationship between sport and the media, and the relationship between sport and public health. I am
the reviews editor for the journal Sport in History and have delivered a series of public lectures and
participated in media debates on the history of sport and sporting culture.
