Our Staff

STEVE BUTT

Managing Director / Founder

Steve is the founder of Your Sport Swindon. Having dreamt for many years about launching a website dedicated to local sport, Steve did just that in January 2015 when he founded Your Sport Swindon. With over 20 years’ experience in regional sports journalism, Steve recognised that the majority of sports and sports people in the town were not receiving the media coverage they deserved. Steve’s vision for Your Sport Swindon is to provide a platform for each and every sport and sports person in Swindon to gain the recognition they deserve and grab a share of the headlines. Having lived in Swindon for almost four decades, Steve is no stranger to the town’s local sports scene, having both played and covered a host of different sports. Steve is the former Sports Editor at the Swindon Advertiser and has also worked for both the Slough, Windsor & Eton Observer along with Medway Today and the Kent Messenger.
