Welcome to the home of Phill Barrs. Phill is a sports fanatic who has a passion for talking about sport. Like most Phill’s first sporting love was football, from a young age, Phill has been supporting Tottenham Hotspur and England. Then the sport of Darts found its way into Phill’s life, and now plays a massive part in it from local league to the professional game.
Phill found school hard, being mildly dyslexic and didn’t leave with any real qualifications. Phill was always very outgoing at school, and has taken that into the adult world. Phill soon found a career in the transport industry, being an established courier driver for over ten years. Over this time Phill’s knowledge of sports, in particular, Football, Darts and Boxing continued to grow. Phill’s social media presence continued to grow, then in 2013 close friend Gary Gillies offered Phill the opportunity to build a new career in the field he loved. Phill joined Gary as one of the first at SBAT as a social media expert. Helping grow the newly formed company presents in the marketplace.
From that moment Phill also went back to school to improve his English skills. Over the next four years, Phill has gone from strength to strength. Writing pieces for established websites, podcasting and making his own Youtube videos all about the sports he loves. Phill is also running well established social media accounts for; SBAT, James Wade, The Sportsman Management Company, Kim Huybrechts and Mensur Suljovic. Phill is always open to working with new people.
