Profile: Nick has been part of the sportinglife.com team since 2007 and is the go-to man for lower (and non) league football. His tipping record stands up to the closest of scrutiny and Crewe and Barrow both secured 99 points of profit in separate previews. His success in backing Stoke for the 2011 FA Cup also shows he can turn his hand to the glamour games when the need arises.
