Racing and football journalist Sean Trivass is looking for other journalists interested in making good money via commission to help to recruit clients for Betting Banter.

Betting Banter is a five-day-a-week personality-led e-mail service covering all sports and sports betting, written by a team of experts including Champion Hurdle-winning jockey Steve Smith-Eccles, Talksport Breakfast Show host Alan Brazil and Angus “Statto” Loughran, as well as SJA member Trivass.

Betting Banter covers betting issues on every sport imaginable, from golf to horse racing, football to boxing, rugby to cricket, with the numbers of subscribers increasing month on month. they must be doing something right.

A free trial subscription period is now available to everyone at

Betting Banter also produces successful Cheltenham, Royal Ascot and Goodwood guides, and they are looking forward to the World Cup in South Africa, when a no doubt contentious guide will be produced by all the contributors after a lively discussion over a few beers beforehand.

After being asked by their members to provide some days at the races, they are also branching out in to hospitality and can organise an “off the shelf” solution for anyone looking for a day out for clients or even an office party, from a simple day at the races to an all inclusive food drink and celebrity host at prices to suit every pocket, all in a one-stop solution for all your sporting needs.

Starting small as all good businesses do, the Betting Banter team seized the opportunity to sponsor a horse race at Brighton in late summer and they have recently invested in their first racehorse and are now actively selling shares in the wonderful San Monique, an unraced two-year-old who looks the business on the Newmarket gallops and is already part-owned by all the columnists listed above who could not resist having a share or two!

If anyone is interested and feels they may be able to assist in any way, the commission structure is excellent and only limited by your own hard work and imagination – please contact Sean personally on 07809 486840. Other opportunities may well be available and will be sent by return email to anyone enquiring.
