He made his name by not only being a distinguished sports author and journalist but co-founding the famous ‘William Hill Sportsbook of the Year’ prize; a sponsorship initiative that is the company is renowned for.

He was hugely influential in making betting popular with the general public and dynamically raising the company’s overall profile.

Sharpe was synonymous with gambling and his name was ubiquitous in the tabloids when a betting story appeared.
