Henry Winter (born 18 February 1963) is an English sports journalist, currently football correspondent of The Daily Telegraph.

The younger brother of Muslim academic, Timothy Winter[1] Henry attended Westminster School and Edinburgh University.

After graduation, he spent a year producing a magazine on sport in London. He then joined The Independent newspaper at its launch, writing a sports and schools column.[2] Winter moved to The Daily Telegraph in 1994.[2] During the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, he gave a daily webcast on the World Cup in general, with specific information on the England team. Winter often takes part in television discussions, including Sky Sports Sunday Supplement, and radio including BBC Radio 5 Live.

Winter formerly wrote a column for Four Four Two magazine. He ghost-wrote the autobiographies of Liverpool FC players Kenny Dalglish, John Barnes and Steven Gerrard.[2][3] Winter also co-wrote the book FA Confidential with former FA Chief Executive David Davies. He is a trustee of the African social enterprise Alive & Kicking, which manufactures footballs in Kenya and Zambia.

Winter has a lyrical writing style but has been criticised [4] for egregious and frequent malapropisms, including repeated misuse of the word "enervated".

In 2012 Winter was named among the top 10 most influential sportswriters in Britain by the trade publication, UK Press Gazette. [5]
