Ian’s interests lie firstly in the area of sport behaviour – particularly with reference to the behaviours,
attitudes and beliefs of sports fans and spectators – and secondly in sporting identities, and the way in
which sport can provide positive identities.
He has also written a number of successful textbooks in sport.
Ian has appeared several times on the BBC’s regional Inside Out programme and other local media, as
well as in the national press – contributing to articles in The Independent and Sunday Times.
