Neil White is a co-founder of the highly-successful Back Page Press, a company which tells sports stories through publishing books and also producing podcasts. A journalist by profession, the success of one of Back Page’s early books – Graham Hunter’s ‘Barca; The Making of the Greatest Team in the World’ – saw Neil and Martin Greig put the sports journalism to one side to concentrate on their new company.

It has gone from strength to strength over the past few years, publishing a string of top-quality books, while they are responsible for two very popular and successful podcasts – Between The Lines and The Big Interview.
