Owner Manager

I am the founder and owner of JF Sports. I have always been a keen sports enthusiast and went to America on a Sports scholarship while completing a bachelor’s degree in marketing.

Having worked in the sports retail industry for a number of years, I identified a real need in the market for expert advice and products for sports people.

The sports industry is evolving at a tremendous pace with technological improvements in sportswear every couple of months. I am dedicated to ensuring that JF Sports is at the forefront of Sports Retailing and we work closely with all our suppliers to ensure that we are consistently training our staff to ensure that our customers receive the very best customer service and advice.

One of the team

I joined the JF sports team 6 years ago. The best thing about working in JF Sports in the sense of team work.

For example, all of the staff are intensively trained by all of our suppliers, to ensure that we all can give the best advice to our customers about all of the ranges we supply.

Personally, I get great satisfaction when I can assist one of my customers select the most suitable running shoe for their particular gait.

For me the most rewarding part of my job is when a delighted customer comes back a couple of weeks later to tell me how my advice has really made a difference to their running style / performance.
