Content Editor at Free Super Tips, Alex was born in the shadow of Old Trafford and is an avid Man Utd fan. After graduating from university he combined his love of football, writing and betting to join FST and now closely follows goings-on in all of the top European leagues.
Here at FST we’re always on the lookout for ways to improve and broaden the range of betting content on offer and now we’re on the lookout for a freelance writer to produce high-quality football betting previews and tips.

Or maybe you’re wondering what it’s like to work for Spotlight Sports Group and FST in particular? We caught up with one of our current freelance writers, Chris Kisby, to get an insight into life at FST.
Hi Chris, how does working for FST suit your lifestyle? Does it fit in well alongside your other commitments?
I’ve worked as a freelance writer for many years alongside a regular nine-to-five job and working for FST over the past few years has suited my lifestyle perfectly.
I’m able to focus on the role during the evenings, be it catching up on the leagues I cover, researching / analysing upcoming fixtures and publishing previews two or three days ahead of the fixtures.
Have you developed any new skills while working as a content writer at FST?
Over time, I’ve been increasingly tuned in to the FST house style and our target audience. Compared to when I started, I feel my contributions to FST have added greater value over time, as my previews have become more targeted, concise, and consistent.
I’ve also improved as a betting tipster, helped by regularly working on the same leagues. This makes a huge difference as it allows you to spend more time invested in certain leagues and competitions, which continually enhances your knowledge and ability to analyse teams as well as weigh up upcoming fixtures at a deeper level to seek out value.
What aspects of working for FST do you enjoy the most?
The team are extremely helpful and great to work with, and I like the creative freedom we have working within certain parameters.
I think it’s important that while everyone keeps in line with the general tone and style of FST, it’s good for each writer to showcase their own tipping methods, opinions and writing styles.
Finally, would you recommend FST as a workplace for a freelance writer?
100%. It’s a great brand, and would suit a writer in a similar position to me, or a full time freelancer who has several workstreams going on at the same time.
