About: Stephen

Stephen Kilbey is a British, American sports fan, who dreams of becoming a full-time journalist when he finishes university. Stephen writes match reports as well as features on the Green and Gold and various topics around the US sports games played in the UK for Pocket Doppler, alongside his many ventures writing about Auto-Racing for a website based in the UK. He also avidly watches Hockey, College Sports, Baseball and Basketball but stupidly chose to follow teams from all over the USA, spanning the various American timezones - no wonder he is constantly tired. When he isn't up all night watching US sports, he spends time planning his next trip to Lambeau Field while trying to work out the logistical side of how he can move to Wisconsin before his Packers season ticket becomes available in 30 years time.
